Quote of the Day: Eckhart Tolle

If you go into a forest with your mind only, you'll only notice the sounds and the mind will try to interpret them. You might think you're present; but you're not really, you're simply judging what you hear. But if you become aware of the silent dimension underneath the sounds and in between the sounds, then you become present because the moment you become aware of the silence, you also have become silent.

Eckhart Tolle

There is definitely truth in that statement by Mr. Tolle. The moment you try to become aware that your mind is wandering, it stops. Good stuff!
