I have read The Power of Now and A New Earth. I have also listened to the audio from retreats. This book condenses the teachings and provides a simple guide. I would not recommend this to someone who is unfamiliar with Eckhart's teachings as someone new to these teachings would probably prefer more background. I plan to keep this as my guide on seeking and keeping presence.
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.
This is an excellent book. I find Tolle's voice very soothing. It is the most clear and pure description of how to take life as it comes. I highly recommend listening to this this book which seems much more appropriate to the subject. Hence,I'd rather listen to Stillness Speaks than read it.
I can't stop listening to this book. LOVE This book. I highly recommend listening to this book over and over because you find new treasures in it every time
I mostly listen to spiritual (Eckhart Tolle) and skills enhancement books (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). I recommend all of them on here.
I got the physical book after listening to it, because it's kind of like a day book, where you can read a little and reflect on that for the day.
Very deep realization of who I really am.
The true map to find the treasure of life named freedom.
Conceptual understanding that can lead to knowledge and release the individual from the mental and emotional prison.
Very highly recommend to all persons of all races and all walks of life.
I've had this book for a few years and keep on listening time after time. In adversity it helps you find peace. In day to day life it reminds you to be present and embrace the is Ness of this moment. This book can change your life!
