Listening to "Stillness Speaks", written and narrated by Eckhart Tolle was a wonderful experience. This audiobook actually gives you the chance to contemplate the key learnings in real time, by introducing the much needed silence during the audiobook. I needed to get used to that for a bit, but then found it to be an excellent way to "absorb" this book. Eckhart Tolle would probably tell me I still used too much cognitive reasoning instead of just "being", but hey, I am making progress. :-)
There are so many profound insights in this book, you have to listen to it for yourself. Multiple times.
Reading the book brings a gentle inner peace. Yes, I'd recommend this book to anyone.
I've listened to the Power of Now and A new Earth. This audiobook has longer pauses and a little boring.
Reading the book is better.
Here and now
This book is really slow, but that's the point, to slow the mind, to awaken the stillness inside you. I wouldn't buy this book as your first Eckhart Tolle book. As always Eckhart doesn't disappoint.

Write better questions!!!!!!!!
A soothing philosophic lullaby. Drop the needle anywhere and press pause at any time.
The space between the words.
All of them.
I really liked the principles Eckhart discusses. I love the way he summed it all up in chapter 1 and even mentioned the rest of the book is for those who still need more examples. You could just read/listen to Chpater 1 and that's the whole book!
Practicing stillness more often; being in silence is extremely important even if you don't subscribe to his teaching.
Because of who he is and what he is teaching, some may think the reading a bit on the slow side, but I thought it added dimension to the book. That's all part of the principles he's trying to get across.

I listen to it over and over. It really works for me as I listen and just do what the book says. I am more conscious of my surrounding. I now understand when the scriptures point out "Be still my soul." I am also more aware of what nature teaches me as I watch, be still, and observe. I try to do the same practice with my thoughts.
Speaks. Stillness Speaks. Stillness Speaks. Stillness Speaks. I know this is not a conventional review. It's my view that more words would diminish what is pointed to in this audiobook.
I love Eckhart. His voice is so soothing and so are the things he says. I have listened to this one as well as A New Earth. I recommend both. Probably anything else he does will be good too.
