Eckhart Tolle Movie: Based on Milton’s Secret
Eckhart Tolle joins forces with filmmaker Barnet Bain to talk about this new and powerful genre of Transformational Entertainment. Their latest project is based on Tolle’s book “Milton’s Secret”, and it’s about a boy who is being bullied at school and is not sure how to handle it. But then his Grandfather pays him a visit and helps him turn the situation around through being Present and being connected to his True Self.
This is a powerful film project that will be made with the help of all those inspired by Eckhart’s work. If the consciousness of those people awakened by the teachings rises to meet the difficulties new media faces in Hollywood, which is still operating under old paradigm values, extraordinary change will occur in media. This short teaser clip gives a great introduction to the film as well as an important discussion with Barnet and Eckhart about the value of spiritual media.
Messages from Eckhart Tolle
“Not only anxious thoughts, but also resentment, grievances, pointless complaining, guilt and regret, criticism of self and others, perpetual discontent…… are ways in which we unconsciously create suffering for ourselves. They arise in imagination (the mind). We need to recognize that these are all unnecessary baggage that brings a heaviness into our lives and strengthens a false sense of self. When you recognize their pointlessness, you can let go of them and then MOVE THROUGH LIFE WITHOUT UNNECESSARY BAGGAGE, enjoying the present moment, including its challenges. And so the present moment becomes your friend, and you begin to experience life as supportive, rather than hostile. This is the miracle of transformation.” ~Eckhart Tolle
Here is an ancient Chinese proverb:
“One should not miss the flavor of being sick, nor miss the experience of being destitute”
“Not an inspiring saying, perhaps, at first sight, but actually quite profound. To miss an experience means resisting, complaining, huffing and puffing (which is futile, since it is what it is already). The alternative? Choose to ‘be the space’ for whatever experience Life (the present moment) gives you. Allow the Now to be as it is. Then there is a depth to who you are. And inner peace. And right action arising out of that.” ~Eckhart Tolle
“The word enlightenment conjures up the idea of some superhuman accomplishment, and the ego likes to keep it that way, but it is simply your natural state of felt oneness with Being. It is a state of connectedness with something immeasurable and indestructible, something that, almost paradoxically, is essentially you and yet is much greater than you. It is finding your true nature beyond name and form.” ~Eckhart Tolle
