Hi Everyone,
Below are the quotes from the session Brian facilitated;

Feeling The Energy of The Body – Quotes from Eckhart Tolle

#1 - To ‘inhabit the body’ is to feel the body from within, to feel the life inside the body. You are cutoff from Being as long as your mind takes up all your attention. When this happens – and it happens continuously for most people – you are not in your body. You need to reclaim consciousness from the mind. This is one of the most essential tasks of your spiritual journey. Simply take focus of your attention away from thinking and direct it into the body. Feel it from within. Is it alive? Is there life in your hands, arms, legs feet – in your abdomen, your chest? Can you feel the subtle energy field that pervades the entire body and gives vibrant life to every organ and every cell? Can you feel it simultaneously in all parts of the body as a single field of energy? Do not start to think about it. Feel it.

#2 - So when challenges come, as they always do, make it a habit to go within at once and focus as much as you can on the inner energy field of your body. But you need to do it the moment that the challenge presents itself. Any delay will allow a conditioned mental-emotional reaction to arise and take you over.

#3 - When listening to another person, don’t just listen with your mind, listen with your whole body. Feel the energy field of your inner body as you listen. That takes attention away from thinking and creates a still space that enables you to truly listen without the mind interfering. Most people don’t know how to listen because the major part of their attention is taken up by thinking.

#4 - Be the alert guardian of your inner space. You need to be present enough to be able to watch the pain-body directly and feel its energy

#5 - Whereas the outer body normally appears to grow old and wither fairly quickly, the inner body does not change with time, except that you feel it more deeply and become it more fully. If you are twenty years old now, the energy field of your inner body will feel just the same when you are eighty.

#6 - Now let your spiritual practice be this: As you go about your life, don’t give 100% of your attention to the external world and to your mind. Keep some within. Feel the inner body when engaged in everyday activities, especially when you are engaged in relationships or when you are relating to nature.
