Lose yourself to find yourself

Eckhart Tolle me ayuda a volver a mi centro cada vez que me pierdo en el mundo de la materia física. Me recuerda que tengo que olvidar, soltar, sentir más las sensaciones y pensar menos. Estar aquí y ahora porque por más que uno se mueva en el espacio-tiempo siempre es aquí y ahora jajajaja
Dejo aquí algunas de sus palabras, si alguien no entiende inglés y tiene interés se lo traduzco :)
Con Amor


 Inner space arises whenever you let go of the need to emphasize your form-identity. That need is to the ego.It is not a true need. Whenever you relinquish one of these behavior patterns, inner space emerges. You become more truly yourself. To the ego it will seem as if you were losing yourself, but the opposite is the case. Jesus already taught that you need to lose yourself to find yourself. Whenever you let go of one of these patterns, you de-emphasize who you are on the level of form and who you are beyond form emerges more fully. You become less, so you can be more.
Here are some ways in which people unconsciously try to emphasize their form-identity. If you are alert enought, you may be able to detect some of these unconscious patterns within yourself: demanding recognition for something you did and getting angry or upset if you don´t get it; trying to get attention by talking about your problems, the story of your illnesses, or making a scene; giving your opinion when nobody has asked for it and it makes no difference to the situation; being more concerned with how the other person sees you than with the other person, which is to say, using other people for egoic reflection or as ego enhancers; trying to make an impression on others through possessions, knowledge, good looks, status, physical strength, and so on; bringing about temporary ego inflation through angry reaction against something or someone; taking things personally, feeling offended; making yourself right and others wrong through futile mental or verbal complaining; wanting to be seen, or to appear important.
Once you have detected such a pattern within yourself, I suggest that you conduct an experiment. Find out what it feels like and what happens if you let go of that pattern. Just drop it and see what happens.
De-emphasizing who you are on the level of form is another way of generating consciousness. Discover the enormous power that flows through you into the world when you stop emphasizing your form-identity.
