Catch Up with Guests from Oprah & Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth
She asked Eckhart and Oprah how she could shed this identity and find peace.
"The most important thing has already happened," Eckhart said. "You have become aware that up to now, you had been identified with the idea of 'I am a sufferer of such and such an illness.' So, the illness had become thought forms in your head, and you identified with the thought forms, and you took them to be who you are."
Eckhart also advised Victoria to talk about her illness no more than she had to. By not focusing on her illness in conversation, she would, Eckhart said, gradually refrain from thinking of herself as a sick person and focus her attention on well-being.
That doesn't mean the pain goes away. Eckhart said she should still seek treatment and do what she could to take care of herself. Pretending the pain isn't happening, he said, would add psychological pain on top of the physical pain.
