Eckhart explains that it is indeed possible to manifest while engaging in egoic thinking, but the material results of these achievements won’t bring long-term satisfaction to your life. Truly enduring manifestation in the realm of form arises from Presence. With all this said, Eckhart also emphasizes that understanding how material achievement is unfulfilling is a major step toward realizing Presence.
“One of the most useful things in life is mistakes,” states Eckhart. “Make as many as possible, and then you will learn what your path is.”
