Yes, It is a fantastic 'go to' tool for practicing presence and each time you listen to it you will feel closer to a peaceful life.
Eckhart gives several examples of actual meditations that you can use in real life and even start using while you are listening to the book.
Eckhart has a very calming, meditative voice that makes listening to this a meditation in itself. Just listening to this will help the shift towards inner peace happen for you.
The simple act of putting a small percentage of attention into your body at all times will help to decrease your mind activity.
This is just a great practical edition that is really all you need in your spiritual tool kit. I would suggest reading The Power Of Now first, though, so that you at least have an introduction to the ideas presented here.
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
i have been listening to this in bed before i fall asleep. it gives me something positive and relaxing to focus on besides the constant chatter of my mind that keeps me awake.
I thought that the title of the review was catchy. I've had this Book for about 5 years but never read it, having this audible mad it easy to listen to it on my ipod while I was driving. The chapters are short enough that you don't have to remember or fast forward. It's read by the author which means it's interpreted the way intended.I'm getting a lot out of it, and hope you do too.
I read this book back in 2004 and loved it. Recently, I downloaded the audiobook and I listen to it all the time. Whenever I'm waiting, stressed, distracted, disenchanted or happy, I listen to it. I find it very inspiring and a good reminder of living my life to the fullest by being in the present!
