Eckhart Tolle

 The voice of the ego continuously disrupts the body's natural state ofwell-being. Almost every human body is under a great deal of strain and stress, not because it is threatened by some external factor but from within the mind. The body has an ego attached to it, and it cannot but respond to all the dysfunctional thought patterns that make up the ego. Thus, a stream ofnegative emotion accompanies the stream of incessant and compulsive thinking. Ultimately you are not taking responsibility for life until you take responsibility for this moment — Now.

This is because Now is the only place where life can be found. Taking responsibility for this moment means not to oppose internally the “suchness” of Now, not to argue with what is. It means to be in alignment with life. Underneath the surface appearance, all things are interconnected, are part of the totality of the cosmos that has brought about the form that this moment takes. When you say “yes” to what is, you become aligned with the power and intelligence of Life itself. Only then can you become an agent for positive change in the world.
Ego-generated emotions are derived from the mind's identification with external factors which are of course, all unstable and liable to change at any moment.
The deeper emotions are not really emotions at all but states of Being.
Emotions exist within the realm of opposites. States of Being can be
obscured, but they have no opposite. They emanate from within you as the
love, joy, and peace that are aspects of your true nature.
