Yesterday I watched Eckhart Tolle visiting Google Headquarters. He talked with Google’s Bradley Horowitz about the balance of “knowledge” and “wisdom”. one could say that there aren’t much more different ways of looking at the meaning of wisdom: While Google has certainly many of highly intelligent people with brilliant and high-performing minds employed, Tolle says the secret lies in turning the mind off and in not looking for an identity in it. I like to suggest that finding balance seems to be the ultimate and right way to go.
Sometimes days, weeks or even month go by without even realizing that you actually live. Your mind is so full of all the demands and needs and wants that you chase after every day, that there is no time left to stop for a moment and of consciously experiencing yourself. Does that sound familiar to you? So how can you live more consciously day-in and day-out?
For me personally clarity is one of these qualities I constantly strive for. And if you are anything like me you know that a clear mind is not only the best tool you can have to work with, but also the basis for living a balanced, conscious life. Clarity comes when we think simple, yet intelligent and powerful, and are aware of what is really important to us and let go of all the rest. To reach total clarity in your mind you can use different techniques.
Have you ever in your entire life asked yourself this question ? Was your answer, Bob Smith ? I just meant your full name, your first name followed by your last name. My last name changed when I got married. My first name has a nice meaning but is widely mispronounced and misspelled since my childhood. The point I am trying to make here is, I am not what I am addressed as. My name belongs to me. It is not “me”.
