The message is one of peace and love, without cajoling humanity too much, the reality is that humanity is not very well at this present moment, and this books seeks to show us how to rid ourselves of the pain and wastefulness with which we live and to unveil the beautiful essence in us all, through gradual and, at times, difficult introspection and learning.
When it describes how we begin to identify with the things that are holding us bakc or causing us pain so much that we start to find it difficult to let go of those things that bring us so much misery.
Whether religious, spiritual or not (I am neither of those things per se) read this book, it has very universal message that transcends religion, gender or ideology.
The book provides a simple explanation of worldly context, true priorities, and how to manage one's existence. I immediately found peace with these writings. It forego's blame and drives focus to simple understanding. The Q&A format addresses all aspects and potential doubt. Abstract spirituality drives it's core however it's principals can be applied regardless of one's own concept of the universe. This book should be read by anyone trying to find balance and needing help refocusing the everyday.
Loved this book. I feel like I already knew everything he was saying. I seem to associate some of what was being said with the Bible and then he mentions what I was thinking. That was scary. I will be purchasing all of Eckhart's books!!!!!
I constantly found myself rewinding this book so that the full breath of what was being communicated could sink in!!! this is a deeply moving book that will exact change in your everyday persceptions life
I had to listen to the book with an open mind I didn't get the bell at first that Chimes after every session or before each session begin but the content was very helpful to my spiritual growth
I love this book. Life changing. His voice as narrator is wonderful. I will re listen to this many times and have also ordered the actual book itsself. I highly recommend this book for everyone. I have already shared it with friends and family. After much pain and suffering in my life situation, this book has helped me to see the reality of the now, and the true essence of my inner being. This has been profound to break down my ego and pain body and begin the journey of peace within myself. A truly powerful experience
In ''The Power of Now'', Eckhart Tolle takes the listener on an incredible journey of spiritual growth. He reveals the dysfunctionalities and problems of the modern world and proposes a means by which to put a hold on the ''insanity'' human kind has sustained for centuries. By finding stillness within and being fully present to the moment you will find true joy and lasting inner peace. By getting in touch with that part of you, by finding that true essence you play a dramatic role in the transformation of the world as we know it and ultimately, your life changes for the better as well. The only challenge you are faced with is giving up your false self - the ego, so as to release all of the energy that is being trapped by the thinking mind.
The author's performance deserves praiseas well. He is able to deliver the text whilst in a fully present state, so when you listen to the recording, you are also a reciprocator of that nice flow of present energy.
I definitely recommend this book to absolutely everyone. It has been a tremendous influence on me, and in fact, it probably makes my list of my favourite books ever written!
