Fragments from an interview with Eckhart Tolle, by Paula Coppel - Unity Magazine
Paula Coppel: In The Power of Now, you describe having a dramatic personal awakening. What exactly do you think happened to you?
Eckhart Tolle: For many years I had been deeply identified with thinking and the painful, heavy emotions that had accumulated inside. My thought activity was mostly negative, and my sense of identity was also mostly negative, although I tried hard to prove to myself and to the world that I was good enough by working very hard academically. But even after I had achieved academic success, I was happy for two weeks or three and then the depression and anxiety came back.
Many spiritually oriented people feel a need to help others and contribute to the well-being of the world. This is natural, as compassion is an important aspect of a spiritual character, and is very helpful for the spiritual training. This compassion motivates us to become active in the world with the aim of letting our inner happiness overflow to the others who can benefit from it. Yet, when we begin to be active in the world with the aim of helping others, we must first also be lucid about the nature of the situation - what are the real problems, what are their causes, what can be done to help and what are the power-factors in action. The following article gives very important information which points out that most of the humanitarian organizations around the world fail to deal with the real problems, and points out the reasons for that. At the core - the problem is the paradigm (the perspective) - which is focusing the attention on the manifestation of the problems and not on their causes. A spiritual vision - holistic in nature - always aims to understand the phenomenon in their fullness and depth - understanding what lies at the root of every phenomena. As this article shows - the ignorance of the root causes for the violation of human-rights, is not by coincidence, but by design.

What we are all looking for is happiness and as some researchers think, one of the mysteries of the state of happiness resides also in the mysterious transformations that occurs in the nature, more precisely, in the physiological modifications that take place in our body under the action of various ingredients contained in the food and the medicinal herbs that we use. Taking into consideration that, most of us are what we eat, below you can find several foods and medicinal herbs which can help us to awaken and amplify in our beings, in a perfectly natural way, well being, calmness, the psycho-emotional balance and in the end even the state of happiness, of which we may say, we can „taste” it in this manner, here and now.
Love is a subject as vast as it is fascinating and mysterious. What could be more delightful in life than the broad and deep experience of this euphoric and ravishing feeling, that we call love? Love makes us expand from finite to infinite and it takes us off the loneliness of our beings. The delicious and overwhelming experience of falling in love makes us float with happiness and feel in the seventh heaven. Our love reservoirs are filled up to the maximum and the transfiguration of our beloved is exemplary. Why should we not always remain in this state of grace? To achieve this, however, we need a lot of attention and dedication and it is very important for us to know the way how we should manifest our love towards our beloved, for he or she can understand and feel it, on his/her own language, and he/she can always feel loved and appreciated in our relationship.

1. God the Father is and remains the one and the unique God of man, even in the moments we are not aware about this. Nature, within which the Eternal Feminine (Maha Shakti) is manifesting, is His temple. Beyond appearances, when our perspective is intensely and deeply transfiguring, each profoundly beneficial, divine and creative action can be seen as a sui generis ritual.
