of Now" has quickly established itself as a spiritual classic. Since first
being published in 1999 it has made best selling lists around the world, has been
published in more than 30 languages, and has been compared to books like "A
Course in Miracles".
The Power of Now begins with an honest and revealing
story of how the author had his spiritual awakening. Eckhart Tolle goes on to
discuss some of his ideas and philosophies that he has used to attain a level
of peace and happiness that had never experienced during the first 29 years of
Being in the Now is the major theme of the book, which is a simple
concept that is rarely implemented. In our busy 9 to 5 lives we are so often caught
up in what is happening yesterday and tomorrow, that we often forget about now,
which is the only thing that is real.
Tolle also explores the mind and
puts forward methods to stop suffering from the garbage that our thinking can
burden us with.
The writings of Eckhart Tolle are so easy to understand
that they can seem complicated. He writes in a way that makes it hard to put the
book down, which makes his "break time" points that encourage the reader
to stop and think, quite valuable.
The Power of Now is a book that should
be bought, rather than borrowed from the library. It's a book that can handle
being read more than once.
The Power of Now
my thirtieth year, I lived in a state of almost continuos anxiety interspersed
with suicidal depression. It feels now as if I am talking about some past lifetime
or somebody else's life." Eckhart
word enlightenment conjures up the idea of some super human accomplishment, and
the ego likes to keep it that way, but it is simply your natural state of felt
oneness with being. It is a state of connectedness with something immeasurable
and indestructible, something that, almost paradoxically, is essentially you and
yet is much greater than you. It is finding your true nature beyond name and form."
word God has become empty of meaning through thousands of years of misuse. I use
it sometimes, but I do so sparingly. By misuse, I mean that people who have never
even glimpsed the realm of the sacred , the infinite vastness behind the word,
use it with great conviction, as if they knew what they were talking about."
