Why do our negative experiences seem to stay with us so persistently? It is because they are the fuel for what Eckhart Tolle calls the pain-body, an energetic field that actually feeds on toxic thoughts and emotions. Liberation from the pain-body is not about repressing or denying our thoughts. Instead, as Eckhart's teaching partner Kim Eng reveals, we must develop a complete receptiveness to all experience-rejecting nothing, judging nothing, and resisting nothing.

The fact that resisting nothing is possible. Understanding how we keep adding to the pain body when we resist. The reality that we are a part of the whole, that life is not personal. Remembering that my life situation is not unique.
Kim Eng's meditation practice.
Yes, it's like going to a fine restaurant that you have been bragging to friend's about then going back another time with those friends and the food is ten times better than the first visit. I cannot explain what is happening to me within in words much like this review but I can say that living aware has healed me.
Letting go of what was. Accepting what is without resistance. Realizing my experiences from past life experiences make so much sense now. These teachings are not new to me and yet they are and realizing this and remembering the parts of my story of the past truly help me realize GOD IS.
I just am truly grateful that what I felt for years was me feeling as if I was losing my mind, really was me losing my mind. I am grateful to know we are loved so much that we are given portals to remind us of it, and that we all have the blessing of being privy.
The book is almost all Kim Eng and I will not buy from her again without a better sample, but I would buy Tolle again. I loved the intro part with Tolle in it. Eng, either her voice or her whole approach did not resonate with me at all, which was surprising. Tolle has done a lot for me as a writer and speaker. I guess his pick in partners just doesn't suit my needs.
No. It's only turned me off from Kim Eng.
Tolle and someone more like Gangaji. Someone with more groundedness in her voice.
Tolle is great. Not Eng's best work here.
Two important notes about this book:
1) the forward is by Tolle. He speak for about 20 minutes and the rest of the book is by Eng I feel that the marketing by the publisher and Amazon is misleading.
2) this book is a series of guided meditations. If that is what you are seeking then this is a great book for you.
Being taught to acknowledge the Pain Body in intimate relationships helps me to safeguard myself, learn awareness and skills to maneuver through life. Life changing. Thank you!
This guided meditation was nice, broken into chapters that were 10-15 min. Eckart Tolle is hard to top, but Kim Eng has a pleasant soothing tone and manner
Eckhart Tolle assists the listener to identify and distinguish his Consciousness/Inner Self from the thoughts, sense perception, and emotions that arises which can arouse and provoke what he identifies as the pain body.
I have only once listened to the complete book. I will return to it again and again. The talking meditations help to structure my focus and remind me to accept and let go. I definitely need more practice with that and I am sure I will get all the practice I need. I enjoyed Kim's calm presence while speaking and reinforcing no self judgment while. I.e. wing aspects of myself and the many years I have had to build a story that I now need to let go of and start a new story
