A relationship with yourself?

In The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle offers dozens of opportunities to the alert reader, to dis-identify with the mind and jump into the realm of consciousness.

His different attempts - answers to questions that were posed to him -, manage to pierce the shield of mind surrounding consensual perceptions, and give the reader a glimpse of a deeper state of being.

Still, each of us may respond in different degrees to those attempts. Personally, I have found the following fragment specially efficient in pointing at a state of consciousness free from mind:

But do you need to have a relationship with yourself at all? When you have a relationship with yourself, you have split yourself into two: "I" and "myself", subject and object. That mind-created duality is the root cause of all unnecessary complexity, of all problems and conflict in your life. In the state of enlightenment, you are yourself - "you" and "yourself" merge into one. You do not judge yourself, you do not feel sorry for yourself, you are not proud of yourself, you do not love yourself, you do not hate yourself, and so on. The split caused by self-reflected consciousness is healed, its curse removed. There is no "self" that you need to protect, defend, or feed anymore. When you are enlightened, there is one relationship that you no longer have: the relationship with yourself. Once you have given that up, all your other relationships will be love relationships.
