Hearing Tolle speak.
I love the compilation which includes some of Tolle's greatest words of wisdom. But between each recording is the publisher's message which becomes very annoying after the second repetition.
New material and not the same as previous works. I'm a big fan of his work but this book was more of the old.
Narrator was good.
Needs new material.
Love is the only way to describe how I feel about this book. Being given the ability to see and understand what for so long I was searching for is a blessing. I try to listen every day to this audio book because it helps me to find myself in this great big world. Integrating all the information or as much of it as I possibly can, has increased my awareness of my own ego and has shown me how it has been preventing happiness from growing inside of me. I am beginning to live in the moment, asking myself important and self revealing questions and beginning to pull myself back much easier from the darkest moods which consumed me for years. I think about the pain body and visualize it gobbling up my painful thoughts and spiraling my negative emotions out of control. For some reason this makes me laugh because I see Pak Man eating up those ghosts and then I am free to choose whether I want to be miserable or happy. Listening to this book has transformed my soul into the light and has given me love in ways I never knew. Thank you for guiding me. Your book is priceless.
It is difficult for people to gain such deep insight from life, but it is much easier when a teacher gained these experiences and explained to the public.
Yes, if they were interested in meditation and spiritual development. Just like any subject you have to have an interest in it, otherwise it could be an excruciating experience. With Mr. Tolle I recommend borrowing one of his books to determine whether what he teaches resonates with you before purchasing his audiobooks.
I suppose anything written by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche or the Dalai Lama because there are kernels of truth within the writing that guide you to be a better human being.
I believe it does. Mr. Tolle's voice is very soothing. He allows for frequent spaces in his discourse to both digest what is being taught and to be "naked" in the moment, as it were.
That we are constantly creating the story of "me" moment by moment. And we love to tell it to ourselves and others.
A word of warning - do not purchase this with the expectation of being entertained. Mr. Tolle does not talk excitedly nor enthusiastically about his subject. He is very calm, quiet, and soothing. He often produces significant gaps of time with no talking. He is sometimes funny. This is all for the purpose of bringing you to a calm, light, almost meditative state.
A book I will read over and over!
Have none, looking for more like this book..
N/A Tolle is unique..
From beginning to the end.. All of it!!
I like both versions. I like to pick up the book and open it , reading from wherever the book fell open. It is so full of wisdom that it doesn't matter which section or chapter I choose-it's all good.
The audio is wonderful while resting, going to sleep or when I have time to sit quietly, without distractions for a half or full hour.
All of it.
enlightening, accessible, uplifting
In this format, ET appears to be more relaxed and addresses an audience directly which makes what he is saying more accessible and immediate.
Living in the now. Making room for more presence.
I found the books by this author to be helpful and powerful, and these recordings are also very helpful.
I think people may have quite different reactions to it depending on their experience and the way they see the world, but I'm sure for many it will be helpful. I did not find his accent difficult to understand, although it is unusual by North American standards. And I like his sense of humor!
If you have not read any of his books, this may not be the best introduction, as for much of the recording he is addressing audiences that are familiar with his material, and so takes some things for granted in his talk.
The first session in the recording is somewhat like a guided meditation, that continues for somewhere around 2 hours. Not exactly a meditation, because he is speaking the whole time, but constantly inviting the audience to connect with their immediate experience and "enter the now". Recorded at a retreat, it really led me into a nice learning experience. I've listened to it more than once, and you needn't necessarily listen to the whole thing, you can drop in and out of it as well.
Well worth listening to!
wonderful, useful, peaceful
Yes. This is an excellent representation of what Eckhart has to teach us. His teachings are meaningful, down-to-earth, sometimes humorous, always compassionate and applicable to every moment of the day.
