ABOUT THE DVD
The conditioning of the human mind is what is keeping human beings trapped in a never ending sense that they are never achieving fulfillment and happiness. This talk will help you recognize what is that which is defined as conditioning, and how it is affecting us , our happiness, or sense of peace, and our civilization and planet. We all have the ability to step out of this compulsive stream of thought, even if for a minute, to access the deepness of life that is vastly more interesting that the world of forms. Eckhart Tolle not only helps us identify when a thought stream has taken over our mind, but gives us some hints on how to access presence, an inner stillness, that will help take us out of that state.

Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany, graduated from the University of London and worked at Cambridge University. When he was twenty-nine, a profound spiritual transformation virtually dissolved his old identity and radically changed the course of his life. He is now a counsellor and spiritual teacher. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
'I listened to this recording three times in the past 6 months and have taken something new from it each time. It was the first time that I understood the human mind as having been conditioned over centuries. This brought me to observe the conditioning in my own mind , how was I judging (whether for the good or bad), particular events, circumstances and people in my life. By using the hints that Eckhart gave in this talk, I was able to step out of my stream of though and simply observe myself. After a while, instead of struggling to 'get to a place of presence', I have noticed that I have found myself there more and more , not by trying, but by allowing my mind to quiet. I notice the red lights with an intensity that I never thought possible.'
'Compulsion to think is a deep seated habit.'
'Are you there as the carrier of your personal history plus your problematic future that you need to think about now, or are you there as aware consciousness.'
'People are feeling guilty if they are not suffering from stress.'
