Stillness Speaks, the book by Eckhart Tolle, is misleading because it implies certain none action. You will agree with me, women didn’t get their equality as they enjoy today by been simply Still, no way. You will agree with me, black people didn’t get their dose of freedom by sleeping in Stillness. In fact nothing has ever been achieved by simply been Still, no matter how you define the world ‘Stillness’.
To give Eckhart Tolle the benefit of the doubt, lets define the word ‘Stillness’ to mean silence of the mind, i.e. no thoughts, no backchat within the mind. Now, even if such silence of the mind is achieved, what about all those nasty emotions and feelings that arise from nowhere? What about all those distant memories that comes up so often? What about all those future projections and worries ? What does stillness do when rage and anger takes over? Can stillness of mind save you from rape and murder? Can stillness of thoughts feed your hunger?
Tolle doesn’t answer any of those questions, also give no clues on how to achieve the so-called silence of the mind. Have you tried to silence your mind’s thoughts specially after moments of rage or fear? So how come then ‘Stillness Speaks’ speaks of no actual method to silence the mind for real? Or to act from that so-called Stillness. Eckhart is talking spiritual mumbo-jumbo, where you can say anything and get away with it, it has no practical living implications whatsoever.
At desteni, we don’t just say anything and get away with it. When desteni say end the backchat or silence the thoughts, we do so by providing proper tools and support to achieve such a state of mind. Backchat is a disease, it consumes us all. So, you need proven tools and ample support to reduce the nasty backchats. Stillness is not going to arrive by devoting to expensive gurus like Eckhart Tolle.
In terms of world problems, to speak of Stillness Speaks is just utter nonsense. At desteni we speak of solutions, Equal Money System is a solution to almost every problem in the world, yes, do the math, do the research. Of course, can’t bring the dead back, or turn a man into a women, other than that any practical problem will be solved with Equal Money System. For that speaking, actions, writing, vlogging, and blogging must happen, so Stillness Speaks is not advisable.
Speak Self Forgiveness instead, Speak Common Sense instead, Stand up for life, be a voice for the voiceless, speak and expose the abuses of this system, speak up to birth a new world.
Now you see, Stillness Speaks is utterly useless, it’s a spiritual dope. I bet Eckhart Tolle made millions out of it, indeed money speaks louder than Stillness Speaks. How fucked up is this.
Learn the desteni tools, learn how to end the backchat, how to achieve real stillness of mind, where thoughts, emotions, and feelings are no more, this is an extensive process, you will require hard work and self application. Start with self forgiveness, self honesty, self writing, and get ample support from open desteni forums, and consider studying the desteni-i-process.
And even if you achieve stillness with desteni tools, don’t just let the stillness speak, YOU speak instead, YOU be the voice for the voiceless. You are the directive principle. You are the force of change. Can’t idle with statements like Stillness Speaks and hope for a better world, no, thats not going to happen. You must act, speak, write, vlog and blog to get things moving. Investigate Equal Money System, investigate desteni.
End the bullshit of spirituality and try something real for a change.
