100 thoughts on “Breaking Addiction to Negative Thinking”

  • A true master is someone who has no need to show off as a master. And that's exactly what we can always without exeption see in your presence.
    And that's why I like you even more!

    Dear Eckhart, you are such a gift. Thank you for making you, what you are now!
    Listening to you helps a lot, to feel the inner peace and to keep the feeling. And to just be. 🙂

    Best regards and all the best, always!

  • The word "fuck" came out of Eckhart's lips!?! I'm beginning to think when Eckhart squats on the toilet, brown deposits of shit actually drops out of his ass-hole?! WTF!?!

  • When working in retail and even the medical field, I have found that when people yell, complain and make a fool of themselves, they do get what they want. However, they wonder why everyone treats them like they're a bomb ready to explode when they enter the building. It's very hard not to get sucked into the negativity when you're around it all the time

  • I love watching this character operate on his sad and desperate dupes while his bank account goes kaa-ching . Good acting ability and soothing voice can give you the ASMR tingles.

  • You can blame a person for being negative but like Eckhart said himself it’s conditioned behaviour from child hood learning to get what you want from negative behaviour. My question is if it’s bad for a child to cry and they get what they want why does a baby do it instinctively you cannot go against instinct.

  • Sam, The Miracle Man says:

    I made it my mission to help those with negative thought addiction. I formed Head Trash Anonymous. When I cleared my head trash, I reversed five incurable diseases that left me mentally and physically disabled. I'm healthy today, my doctors cannot explain me. I'm a medical miracle.

  • I was watching a video on some channel of Eckhart Tolle, and the video got removed by YouTube due to Copyright Strike given by these money-hungry people of Eckhart. I'm sure all this is done without the knowledge of Eckhart. They say, spread the word, but every now and then they keep taking down videos from YouTube. You greedy people, don't you know everybody can't afford 1000$ for your retreats. If you are really ethical people then remove the subscription fee for watching Eckhart's content on his website. Sadhguru who is more popular than Eckhart, has himself allowed everyone to share words on social media including YouTube and he has in fact said that if people want to monetize his content, he has no problem whatsoever, because all he wants is to spread the teachings. I hope someday Eckhart comes to know what sort of sleazy b******s work for him!
    Let's all come together and unearth this scam, stop watching Eckhart's videos, stop going to his retreat, unsubscribe from his website, I am sure this will teach them a solid lesson!

  • How can 336 people dislike this content? A man who is trying to help the world realise there is more to life than negative thinking..weird

  • Satya TV. Holistic Health Practitioner says:

    Negative thinking is so hard for some people to break because it actually produces a dopamine affect in the brain, which plays a major role in the motivational component of reward-motivated behavior. As a Master Life Coach I see this a lot. I help them to replace every negative thought with ten positive to help re-wire the brains neuro pathways.

  • Exactly! The internet/social media has been dangerously inflating the values of our opinions and pumping our egos full of hot air.

  • I really admire you Master Tolle. And I dream about the magic moment of accessing my inner peace just like when that happened with you. I have terrible anxieties and and I've been trying to meditate every day. Every time I have crises I remember when you told that in one of your many crises you accessed your REAL SELF and I also dream about this moment.

  • Soul was brought into being with the Divine nature of God, soul's true nature, your true nature and my true nature is indeed the nature of God, Eckhart's reading of the scripture was to simply find the cause of his new condition, He breezed past the redemption of the physical body, what was once dead was made alive.
    The reason we clearly can know the Truth is present in His teaching is because who we are knows our True nature, and His teachings do reveal it, but because He has no understanding other then what His soul knows and knows nothing of redemption and glorification of the first born Son of the new creation, He would say what is this that your thoughts are saying and I would reply just as he has it is not a thought nor a feeling it is a knowing.
    You see Eckhart's passive way regarding the inner is the way of the soul yet it is not the way of the glorified Spirit, we are to be diligent to guard our hearts not passive not sitting with emotions created by fear and allowing them to lead us, it is good to realize they were created by false beliefs but it is better to realize that mercy created us to show mercy
    to ourselves and others and know with conviction that these thoughts that created false belief's that created emotions can not infact remain in us and we do not need to huff and buff to remove them because they hold no power over us and all we truly need to do is see them, and what he says is true regarding thoughts we are not our thought nor were we our thoughts before Christ, and his teaching disregards not that Christ was the first born son yet he disregarded the redemption of the physical body, lion and lamb, yes a metaphor, yet it does infact POINT to Truth, we are a new creation one that has never been before, our Lord spoke of the holy war indicating that we are not to be passive in regards to what comes against us in the inner since the thoughts our not our own nor should we passively sit and watch them pass by we simply need to speak Truth we are not to be emptied yet we are are to be filled with the fullness of Truth.
    Truth says who we are is who we are children yes children of the most high God and we are infact a new creation and we should embrace this gift of grace that redeemed our physical body, for Christ took dominion back from fleshy nature and caused it to be obedient to His Divine nature this is the Blessed Holy union and Jesus Christ was, is and will always be the first born of the new creation, and we are to follow and His presence that is who we are in and who is in us is the glorified SPIRIT of our Lord to teach us to lead us until Christ gloried is formed in us.

    As per totally integrated and holistic theory, mind cannot be separated from other parts of our being.

    Ancient Chinese Wisdom says, Heart stores consciousness, if the heart qi is deficiency, the consciousness goes hire wire, then we need to balance the Yin Yang of the heart.

    Old people with aging, body organs deteriorate, .. hearts, liver, lungs etc. i.e Yin Yang looses balance, he or she will be out of his mind.

    It is then physiological problems which need to be addressed.


  • most important take away for my ego: I cannot fight the negativity because that itself is negativity. just Be [Aware of it] and let that make you happy.

  • Ricardo Rodriguez Heredia says:

    I'm curious to know, what is the purpose of Ego? Why does it exists? What is its function, reason for existing?

  • It's sad there is an audience with their nervous laughter . They have to laugh for the relief of their inborn stress that they might possibly learn something and be faced with the fact they may actually have to use a teaching for their own benefit .
    They need to see Tolle as a comedian and not a teacher . The audience has been psychologically and emotionally conditioned throughout life to accept theatre in preference to an actual lesson .
    Pay your money and convince yourself you have learned something . Chatter like chickens on your way out of the auditorium . Convince yourselves you don't have the collective attention span of a gerbil .
    Be sure to buy more books and videos . You have no clue .

  • It's sad when students become an audience and so desperately need a comedian instead of a teacher . The dysfunction of this video is incredibly evident . The nervous laughter and chatter is a symptom .

  • Divya Sasidharan says:

    Ugh !! My mum told me the one that creates a scene(crying) will get the milk(whatever it wants) I was heart broken coz I would even speak up about my needs.
    Now, my partner is extremely ignoring n dismissive unless I scream fight or put up a show… n I hate doing that but he only n only even look at me or listen to me is when I scream. I keep telling him why r u creating a monster out of me? Y r u training me to behave this way? To complain to others that m a crazy person n he’s a poor man? M scared scared of him the way he makes me horrible human being. It’s a exhaustive.

  • Have been trying to stop the obsessive for seven consecutive years 😐 .. feels like eternity .. please wish me luck

  • I loved how at the start everyone was laughing at his impressions of people that worry about different things, but then he ends it with 'I don't think I can take anymore of this' – that part hits home and makes you realise how serious those states are for some people.

  • To be " That " what notices the Thoughts come and go, is Only Found when we ( Take No Thought ) The Wordless Mind. peace 🎼🎧🎼👌

  • Lliioonn Heart says:

    I always listen to eckhart tolle with my eyes closed…… until he said f**k. I don't know what to think! I guess that's the problem, I think to much! Lol

  • Merry Graphix says:

    I prefer to use the word , “ accustomed “ …I got accustomed to thinking & acting a certain way. ~ The word “ addiction “ is heavy & judgmental ..It’s good to be able to describe ( label ) these aspects of ourselves in the most open ended / neutral ways as possible …So that one may have an easier experience to navigate changes we choose to make. Thank you 🐬

  • I think he's from a different dimension…there is something extrodinary about him…i love when he laughs…its so playful…amazing person

  • Thank you for allowing me to see that it is only negative thinking that takes me to a place that is so deep into a hopeless pit. Its like coming up for air to listen to this.

  • Holy shit. I never figured that I actually like my negative thinking and that my brain has been trained to enjoy it…. I have to change this

  • The Trick is to Fall in Love with the silent spaces in between each thought. Because when we fall in Love with something, That is what Holds our Attention. Very quickly the silent spaces grow longer , and the negative thoughts in turn get fewer. Keep your attention on the silent Gaps , and you will fall in love with it. 90% of all suffering is thought based. peace 🎼🎧🎼👌

  • Trying to learn says:

    Help please.

    First, thank you for sharing your deep insight.
    I have identified, also with help from friends, that I'm often (as a default setting) negative thinking. Realizing this I saw your video three weeks ago and decided to change. Next morning when the negative thinking started again and I managed to let go of them. That day my wife and I had one of our best days together. Today almost three weeks after, believing that my track was broken, I suddenly realized that I have been having negative thinking and emotions almost the whole time since. I feel sad inside, but I'm so familiar with this, that it doesn't feel wrong to me in the situation. As if I'm unaware/ignoring of how I actually feel.
    I need some help in changing this, how can I speed up the development in the right direction?

  • If you think POSITIVE, the Universe will work in your favour and give you what you wish.
    If you think NEGATIVE, the Universe will work against you and give you SHIT.
    I have experienced that all those people who died due to incurable disease were NEGATIVE people.

  • I had a breakthrough after many years, where I feel I was living in awareness for a period of about 6 weeks. I didn't think, I just did whatever came naturally. I was so much happier for it. Happier and more peaceful than I'd ever been. I've since relapsed into overthinking and worry, and cannot get back there.
    Hopefully this will assist. Thank you Eckhart.

  • I'm not so sure about the whole idea of pushing away or accepting any negative thoughts, or thoughts about a past person. What if the negative thought is your unconscious telling you, you should be with that person? C. G. Jung interpretation of negative thought is exactly that. A hint of the unconscious or even deeper the collective unconscious. My current opinion is, that the more self-honest solution is to dive in the shadow/negativity and try to find a solution to it's cause than just accepting every thing that comes along the way. There's too much potential for the good left on the way otherwise. Or let's take it a step further: What if all good people just accept and repress what's done to them? The cold blooded would rule the world exclusively, cause they will act out there will. I like many ideas of Tolle, but some are only theoretically useful, in a case where all people acted that insightful and empathic. Unfortunately that's not the case.

  • Great talks. What's very funny imo 600 something people gave the thumbs down. Considering the content of this, dealing with letting go of negativity, that made me laugh hard. Don't let go. Hang onto that negativity!! Take the time to come to this teachers positive page, to say No!!. Too funny. Idle hands. Busy minds. LMAO. Cheers

  • It's gotta to truth.

    Because I came to this conclusion without knowing who this great man is.

    What he's saying is universal.

    There's set paths there's got to be

  • I was raised by an abusive, cruel mother who constantly displayed this negative way of thinking, it's taken a lifetime to heal but I've always, even as a young child had the inner belief the world was a good place and full of wonder. My father had many similar beliefs to Eckhart so im guessing this helped immensely although I often wonder why he married such a woman. I do however at times still struggle with negative thinking. This amazing man heals me he is such a gift to our world. 💕💕💕💕

  • Could you explain why people are so easily manipulated by media and the elites behind Greta? Sweden want to sell technology but what the UN want from us? UN always use children to manipulate us for their agenda

  • This was verry helpfull, slowly starting to expierience eckharts lessons.
    Thank you verry much for beiing here in my life to guidence 😊👍☀️🙏

  • The Time Is Nigh says:

    1. Become aware of your negative thoughts.
    2. Realize that you are addicted to this way of thinking. Try to understand why you are addicted to this way of thinking (usually ego based)
    3. Understand that this way of thinking is futile and serves no purpose. Unhappiness does not work and does not change things.
    4. Remain aware of your thoughts. When you are aware you are in control; when you are unaware you are helpless.
