From Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now: “Nothing strengthens the ego more that being right. Being right is identification with a mental position perspective, an opinion, a judgment, a story. For you to be right, of course, you need someone else to be wrong, and so the ego loves to make wrong in order to be right. Not only a person but also a situation can be made wrong through complaining and reactivity.”
The world Adam created with the knowledge of Right and Wrong is one necessary for survival and tool making. However, that knowledge has limitations because it excludes knowledge of Unity. In unity there is no right and wrong, no partition, no division and no conflict. The use of Right/Wrong knowledge exiles the consciousness from Unity of mind and world. Unity consciousness then must be awakened as the ground of unity upon which right/wrong knowledge rests as secondary. Ego consciousness by itself has lost contact with its primary Unity Consciousness. This Unity Consciousness in Tolle’s teaching is the Power of Now. The Power of Now is the power to open the doors to lost paradise or our original unity consciousness before Adam ate the apple of duality, or right/wrong.
