didn't expect to laugh as much; but I'm glad I did, I find myself controlling/preventing my anger outbursts now; I stop think things thru and realize anger is not the solution but problem solving is. I no longer think I am inferior nor superior to anyone else. I feel a stronger more important sense of self. Feeling alive without thinking is the key!
Excellent. I almost did not chose this one because of negative review about laughing person. Glad I did. Use I phone and buds to listen. I did not think it was (laughing) an issue at all. Great retreat audio. So many to choose from, this one was enjoyable and helpful to me.
I absolutely get a lot out of Eckhardt, for me I was ready for all of this. Including letting go of judgement on the spot for about 4/5 of the entire book! A very "laughy" fellow from the audience was very hard to ignore. I found myself trying to figure out, how what was being said was so hilarious; under what circumstance would this be outroarously funny? Hmm, maybe if I needed attention? Maybe if I was high? Maybe if I had a personal grievance with Mr. Tolle? I couldn't find that person's delirium, in relationship to the material. So for me, I have no closure. AHHAHHAHAHAAAAAAAA! HAHA! HAAA. I still had great, new understandings. Letting go of past, shutting done, pro-actively, the head chatter from it; being responsible to the things I ALLOW in my head and becoming dedicated to actualizing my own value!
Eckhart did another great job at providing an opportunity to be present with stories, and question and answer time. His audiobooks have a theme of drawing out the impatient part of you that wants a quick fix or quick trip rather to stillness. I found myself rewinding a few times when I did not catch a joke or meditation reference.
I appreciate mostly the way he caters his words to the audience by reminding you how the mind will try to grab your attention through different examples. What I took from the book is remembering not to get caught up in the idea of form while also respecting the impact it has on my life. He also shared information on types of prayers that stuck out to me as well.
I would recommend this book to a person who is already read or listened to one of his previous books and could use more opportunities for getting the idea of being still to stick.
Within these teachings is the wisdom that can be passed down from generation to generation, starting with children. Within these teachings there instills the avenues with which one and all can achieve peace & true ultimate happiness in the world of forms.
Loved every minute of this seminar.
Period he is the best! Thank you Eckart. Tolle.
Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Not much else to say, in my opinion. What a treat to be able to attend one of Eckhart Tolle's retreats from the comfort of your home. I have listened in the most of his formal books on audible, and this is every bit as good. The spontaneous nature of it brings a whole new dimension to his teachings. Highly recommended.
I don't necessarily agree with everything Eckhart says, yet this audiobook puts me into a better state of mind and doesn't get old. His balanced state comes through in his tone of voice and slow pacing, which annoys some, but calms me. It decreases my sense of struggle and internal complaining, thus increasing my endurance when working late into the night. I listen to it as I work (write software), and sometimes on a low volume to fall asleep to. Because this is unscripted, it's much better to listen to than Eckhart reading one of his published books. I also prefer this over a couple of audiobooks I heard from his other retreats. Besides his perspective on The Now, he's great at delivering entertaining stories and quips, and he can be totally hilarious at times.
If you liked the book the Power of Now, this book will provide you with more insight on the matter. It is worth!
