The Purpose of Your Life is To Be Present

Valerie Rickel

“You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are.”
Eckhart Tolle

I’m very excited to share today’s Daily Soul Retreat with you. It is a wonderful lecture by Eckhart Tolle, the best-selling author of The Power of Now, explaining what living your life purpose is at its very core — to be present — to be aligned with the now.

I hope you enjoy Eckhart Tolle’s deep, philosophical wisdom and genius as much as I do.

If we are present in every moment, we are living our truest purpose, according to Tolle. He makes it sound so simple! I challenge you, today, to find your life purpose… in the present moment!

(Hint, this entire full-length video is magnificent, however, if you would like to fast forward to the topic of “Life Purpose,” you’ll find it at 25:16)


If you enjoyed the video, you might also enjoy two articles by Eckhart Tolle we have published at SoulfulLiving.com:  You Are Not Your Mind and Stillness Speaks.

    I have a great affection for Eckhart Tolle’s teaching and his manner as a teacher. I am reading (again) The Power of Now. So, today’s video was wonderfully inspiring for me. I am always amazed at the power of the simple presentation of Eckhart’s teachings and the joy with which he shares his knowledge. He enjoy’s himself – our enjoyment is almost secondary. Thanks so much for sharing the video opportunity and as is often the case, timing that is totally in tune with my learning on my path. Blessings. L
