Eckhart Tolle, Author Of 'A New Earth,' On The Source Of All Stress (VIDEO)

It's the middle of the night, and your car breaks down with a flat tire. That could be a stressful situation for anyone, but spiritual author Eckhart Tolle says to accept the moment, not resist it.

"When you accept what is, you are grateful for whatever situation arises," Tolle says in the above video from "Oprah & Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth."

The A New Earth and The Power of Now author says that all stress comes from resisting the present moment. In other words, Oprah says,"Your stress is about wanting the moment to be different than what is."

"If you can get nothing else from this book but that, your life will change," Oprah says.

"Oprah and Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth" airs Sundays at 12 p.m. ET on OWN.
