Distinguishing Between Your Life and Your Life Situation

In this episode, Eckhart jokes with an audience about getting a call from the Star Wars Galactic fleet. He then turns to practical matters when he discusses returning home after being away on a retreat. He says we all have a “life situation” which includes: relationships, work, finances and physical health – all burdens we carry with us even when we’re on vacation. Eckhart cautions against having our consciousness completely absorbed by problems. He says our “real life” is in the present moment which should only unfold in the here and now, not in the past nor in the future. He believes the profound difference between our “life” and our “life situation” is where our awareness remains.
