Sunday, July 7: “You Are Not Your Mind”

Rev. Michael Gott

In Chapter 1, Eckhart Tolle writes: “So the single most vital step on your journey toward enlightenment is this: learn to disidentify from your mind.” To many who are new to these teachings, this makes no sense. We have taken Descartes’ “I think, therefore I am” to heart, and believe ourselves to be one with our thoughts. You have a mind, you are not your mind. There is a deeper reality of each of us in pure Being. By simply noticing the ego’s resistance to being present, we can move from experiencing life identified as the “thinker” and into witness-consciousness. When we do this, we being to truly encounter the Power of Now.

Parents: Please sign in your children in at the Youth & Family Ministry Building before the service.


July Talk Series: The Power of Now – A Path to Presence and Peace

It’s been 27 years since Eckhart Tolle published his wonderful book, The Power of Now. In this modern spiritual classic, he brought the wisdom of Eastern Religion, practical mysticism, and depth psychology to a worldwide audience. He offers a path of freedom from the tyranny of our own thoughts that keeps us locked in egoic battles with ourselves and with the world as we perceive it. We will explore this beautiful teaching in our Sunday messages and offer opportunities for deeper conversations in SpiritGroups this summer. If the book is new to you, this may be the key that you’ve been waiting for to move beyond the ego attachments we all encounter; and if the book has been helpful in your past spiritual growth, this is an invitation to reacquaint yourself with the simple, yet challenging practices that help us move beyond our mental patterns and false beliefs that we might connect with our true spiritual essence.
