As any good book on self knowledge, this one has short passages of tremendous depth. Repetition is essential to capture these core concepts due to a important fact described by the book: rarely we can listen without any kind of internal noise or mental process. In my case I listen one chapter several times and always find "new" passages.
There are quite a few. One interest thing is to discover that you have not really listened to it and everytime you revisit a chapter there are parts that seem brand new.
It's about the media, the channel. Eckhart's voice and tone leads to a more concentrated listening. Some sentences are subtlely emphasized and the understanding varies with that.
We are always attracted to mental projections and live most of our time in toxic states. An educated mind opens way to the now.
I love learning thru books, about life, people and ways to be better. My best listen so far? "The Power of Now" have a good listen!
I love Eckhart Tolle's books, but having read the Power of now and A New Earth I found some of this things wore pure repetition of earlier books, but still his words and the way he says them bring me a big sense of calmness and peace
Tolle's insights are crisply articulated in this book. It is full of valuable practices to suit many different situations, moods, etc.
Tolle is the clearest and most accessible person speaking about - and perhaps ever to speak about - the importance of presence, for individuals but also the world.
I wept a few times, as I was completely taken by the profundity of what he is sharing.
An awareness that a power greater than ourselves is bring up the sun in the morning and the moon at night. Showing this power who ever you believe in our daily lives. How to draw this power in our lives more often and live happier life.
There is a lot....I am still "chewing" on.
As a Born Again Christian seeking to fully understand what "NOW Faith" is....this was VERY helpful in many ways. Some of the words were not for me, however, I am able to listen without judgment and for that I have been blessed. I purchased another book by Mr. Tolle and look forward to listening to it soon.
Like to read mostly nonfiction. I enjoy listening to spiritual books when driving or walking.
Miraculous, Powerful, Easy
The teachings are done in a calm manner, it does not ask for perfection or rigidity. Some spiritual books tend to get me stressed, Eckhart Tolle has been there and he teaches in such a non-threatening manner, where mistakes are gifts for you to learn from and as long as you are trying, you will be changed. I woke one day and I saw where my life was headed, what I had become, the underlying deceit that was threatening my world. After reading and practicing these teachings I have grown and am becoming so much more!
Eckharts voice is serene and firm. He is easy on you, and he makes you laugh at yourself
Tired of the pain yet? If so you need to see this movie!
So different from other spiritual books
I live in Florida, I'm Cerified Hypnotherapist, Recover Coach & Trainer, NLP, Theta Healing and Energy Healing. I'm all so a Process Server in Palm Beach County.
I truly believe that if more people living in the moment now the world would be a better place! The power of now is an amazing book I recommend it to everyone.
If one finds the philosophy of living in the now, eliminating the ego, negativity and suffering from one's life, this audio book is a wonderful introduction to how and why.
Not a story. Self help spiritual philosophy and guidance.
I use all of the information and wisdom of the Power of Now daily. A work in progress; me.
Love Tolle's work, wise and applicable regardless of spiritual or religious orientation.
It is a practicle guide that is easy to practice and understand.
I have dyslexia so being able to listen to the book is extremely helpful.
There are so many ahha moments - the book made me question my own thoughts and habits.
Easy to understand and easy to listen to
