The Realisation of Self

There are messages hidden in the open; yet seemingly secret
places; for those who yearn, those who seek truth and love

Yearning for the fulness of being, of life. That feeling of
being alive, of just being, not being brave, smart or cool.

A state without thought, worry or fear. Learning to feel
the body and the aliveness. Hearing with the body and
stilling the mind.

Such a wonderful feeling of relaxation, strength,
knowing and aliveness

Eckhart Tolle explains a simple way of anchoring
yourself in the present moment. The Power of Now

Knowing you are already who you are at this moment,
how to "listen with your entire body", while working
with the body, mind, and attention in order to merge
with this moment There is no tomorow, but an illussion.
Because when tomorrow comes you are already living in
it so it now

He points to those unconscious patterns that keep us
from accessing the deeper intelligence within.

It explores our highest purpose in life and how meditations
can help us attain it with The Realization of Being

Words are useful signposts, Eckhart begins, but our main
spiritual teacher is stillness.

This powerful energy field is always available to us
through meditation.  As we go beyond the need for thought,
we achieve the meditative state of no mind or presence that is
effortless, joyful, and natural.

It seems like if someone were to follow this path, and look into all the things you are suggesting, they would be doomed to a life of self-focus. This is no way to be happy or free. So many people think they can be happy or fulfilled by working on themselves endlessly, but that can never work. People need to be bigger than that to live a life worth living, and even to be themselves. They need to love others, deeply, passionately, without reserve, and to transcend their selfishness and self-focus because of their love for others. I would recommend that over any form of self-work.

I know this comment may not be approved, but I thought it was worth throwing in my 2 cents.

Your comment is enlightening.
Self Focus? I would watch out for that . . .

if everything is connected then you may be me and I you (Quantum Physics).
Know Thy Self: Can one love a self that is not known . . then how can one love another?
