Eckhart Tolle on How to Find God (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Looking for God? According to spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle, your search may be over. God, he says, is really "the power of life itself."

In this clip from a recent episode of "Super Soul Sunday," Eckhart tells Oprah Winfrey that believing in your personal concept of God is no substitute for the reality of God. "When you take your attention into the present moment, a certain alertness arises," he says. "You become more conscious of what's around you, but also, strangely, a sense of presence that is both within and without."

To feel that presence, Eckhart advises that you try a simple exercise that he devised to help you quiet your mind. Hold your hands out in front of you. One hand symbolizes the past, the other the future. Focus on the space between your hands. That is the present. "It can be a little reminder to help you behold that sense of presence," he says. "The only thing you ever have is now."

"Super Soul Sunday" airs Sundays at 11 a.m. ET on OWN.
