Motivational Daily Quotes And Inspirations: Eckhard Tolle – The Power of Now

Motivational Daily Quotes And Inspirations: Eckhard Tolle – The Power of Now

When you surrender to what is and so become fully present the past ceases to have any power. Eckhard Tolle

When you surrender to what is and so become fully present the past ceases to have any power.
Eckhard Tolle

Surrender To The Present Moment:

Many of us do not like the word surrender – I know I am not always comfortable with it, either – as it seems like we are asked to give away power when we surrender to anything. However, the surrendering that Eckhard Tolle is talking about is actually empowering.

 

 

In this context, it speaks of letting go of the worries that we carry from yesterday, the hurt we felt before, and the anxiety that tomorrow’s expectations of us bring with it. If you emerge yourself in the present moment – the only moment of power we actually have – and lovingly welcome it into your awareness you are freeing yourself from a burden that is an unnecessary one to carry. It also gives us a chance to make wise, rational and loving decisions with all of the information that each present moment holds, without the distraction and blurred vision that we tend to react from when we allow our past and future focus to take over.

This type of surrender is essentially connecting us to our true power. And if I look at this word from that perspective it makes me smile

48 Choose Your Own Path Quotes To Motivate You

“Don’t let the agony, regret, or fog of yesterday blind you to the fact that each new day carries with it a plethora of opportunities to move your life in the right direction.” ― Steve Maraboli

“Don’t let the agony, regret, or fog of yesterday blind you to the fact that each new day carries with it a plethora of opportunities to move your life in the right direction.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

No matter which path we had choose to take yesterday, every day we have the opportunity to make new choices, to explore and choose a new path that fits our main goals, even if it seems impossible or difficult. To inspire you to take a chance and choose differently from now on, I have collected 48 quotes to motivate you to reach for the greatness, and potential that I know is within you, within all of us.

 

Choosing A New Path Today – Overcoming Guilt

 

Have you ever wished you would have chosen better?

Sometimes, after having a bad mental or physical week, I am filled with regret about the tasks that I have not done, or the people I have not been able to comfort as they are going through their own pain. The guilt of that used to become so strong, like a cage, as I wallowed in the should have’s, rather than focusing on what I could do today to move forward, to be a better, more productive version of myself. Have you ever felt that way?

 

Breaking this confining pattern happened slowly over time – by focusing on the reasons behind my goals,  and by using techniques such as mindfulness, affirmations, and meditation to reshape my thinking. When I began to show up every day with the thought that each day holds infinite possibilities, and chances of learning and growing, this self-imposed prison disappeared, slowly but steadily.

Resources To Assist You On Your Journey

These same tools are of course available to you at any point as well.

You can explore the video of affirmations below the quotes, created by the very popular YouTube channel YouAreCreators, and use them in your daily life, as I have successfully done, or write and record your own.

One of my favorite (and free) apps for mindfulness meditation is called Deep Meditate and is available on Android.

As a daily gratitude journal, I highly recommend the app Gratitude: Personal Growth And Affirmation Journal, also available on Android

If you are new to mindfulness but would love to learn more, I suggest you start with the book Peace is Every Step by Thich Nhat Hanh, which is a gentle and warm book that is easy to follow along, with real-life applications and examples on how to use mindfulness in your day-to-day life.

  • “Every brush stroke on the canvas, every dab of color introduced, the fine textures impressed in the paint—this accumulation of many small acts combines to shape a final work of art. And so it is with life; each step, each deed, each brief choice builds gradually, day by day, to shape both character and destiny.”
    ― Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway
  • “This proves the significance of individualism; being able to face the music, to embrace it, and then create something beautiful from it. You can’t truly be happy unless you’re unhappy sometimes and the pinnacle of life can only be reached when one can carve their own path.”

    ― Jan Mckingley Hilado
  • “Self-correction makes me check the ruler of my life against the yardstick of my inner voice. I acknowledge when I don’t measure up. Self-correction is an ongoing process. If done often enough, I can stop myself from straying off the path.”
    ― Stella Payton
  • “There is the right way and a million other ways. Eliminating other options prevents limiting your results.”
    ― Kyle Barger
  • “In the space between yes and no, there is a lifetime. It’s the difference between the path you walk and one you leave behind; it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; it’s the legroom for the lies you will tell yourself in the future.”
    ― Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart
