If you’re seeking to develop a spiritual practice, one of the fundamental skills you need to master is the ability to quiet the mind.
Only when you quiet your mind can you begin to become present in the current moment, and live with a state of ineffable joy and bliss. Thus, Tolle teaches that finding stillness is the first step towards getting rid of the pain body and releasing your suffering. Because it is through stillness that we can hear the callings of the present moment.
But how, exactly, do you learn to stop the voice in your head? In this video, Eckhart Tolle explains how to quiet the mind.

Whether you struggle with hyperactive thoughts, anxiety, depression, or simply can’t seem to shut your mind off when you want to meditate or relax, the solution is always to begin to focus your awareness, develop a sense of presence and be present in the moment.
The number 1 way to focus your awareness is to draw attention to your breath, which you can do through any of a number of pranayama techniques, or even just a simple meditation to notice as your breath moves in and out of your body.
