Worry – Eckhart Tolle

Today is another Eckhart Tolle Friday! Tolle had an epiphany when he was just 29 years old, which he began choosing inner peace, and later became a spiritual teacher. In 2008, The New York Times Tolle “the most popular spiritual author in the United States”. He was also a guest on the Oprah Winfrey show.

“Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose.”

-Eckhart Tolle

Tolle is known for being in the now, and doesn’t allow the anticipation of the future or the guilt from past get in his way of living a meaningful life.

So, it makes sense that he would say that worrying is not necessary, and is something that makes it more difficult to stay in the moment. Worrying is a waste of energy, because these things may not even occur, and they rob us of the beauty in this moment.

Learn to not worry so much, and instead focus on this moment instead.
