Greatness can't be achieved with a credit card. It requires time and effort before we can accomplish anything worthwhile.

Despite our desire for immediate gratification, we cannot expect to have every desire fulfilled. Nothing worthwhile is ever achieved at once. This is the spiritual message of Eckhart Tolle. In order to achieve greatness, it's necessary to put forth the effort. Whatever your desire, it must first be planned. Then time and effort must be expended before you can expect to realize the outcome.

Unfortunately, our world does not emphasize the need to work for what we want. The media and advertising have brainwashed us into believing that we can have everything we want with the flash of a credit card. We cannot appreciate the object of our desire if it comes easy. Mothers love their newborn infants as it took nine months to carry the fetus from conception to birth. An instant birth carries less value than the one that required time for its development.

The purpose of human life is the development of character. The rule to greatness is to use the time we have to develop godly character. Godly character requires a great deal of study, application, and trial and error. We will never appreciate anything that did not take the time and effort to achieve. Success can't be achieved any other way.

True. Eckhart Tolle was a student of Barry Long - whose use of words I prefer. Barry's teaching is more suited to my own nature of strict discipline when it comes to knowing your self. Eckhart took a lot from Barry and has done very well for himself - he's now a rich man.

I've got his first two books, A New Earth and the Power of Now. Profound reading. He's the Canadian version of the Dalai Lama.
