The concepts in this book will take your spirituality to a higher level. They are meant to awaken you to a higher consciousness. They are concepts that need to be internalized and understood deeply, not so much at the cognitive level but practiced, felt and experienced. It has traces of several major world religions but adheres to none in particular. The foundation is common to all and doesn't conflict with any. I plan on re-reading this book and keeping it close by for reference as I attempt to put it into practice. In fact, I have purchased the companion book - Practicing the Power of Now. Additionally, I listened to this book and Eckhart Tolle's voice is so soothing and peaceful, it greatly enhanced the experience of delving into these deep truths. I recommend it for anyone seeking truth, freedom and a deeper, more joyful existence.
I love Tolle's philosophy and I very much enjoy how he talks. He has a soft, soothing voice and a no nonsense style.
My husband is reading the same book for the second or third time - I don't like to read this sort of book in print and he doesn't do audiobooks, but we enjoy discussing The Power of Now. I believe this experience will be life changing for both of us.
loves it. I was able to see where I had issues and begin to release those areas. I am more aware of being present and effortlessly finding peace.
I read this book by Tolle after reading 10% Happier by Dan Harris. As the fruit of reading it, I experienced my first full week of conscious awareness and was finally free from over thinking. I also experienced grace that cleared obstacles from my path while running my errands during the weekends. I am grateful that I finally found the antidote to self sabotage to life. Thank you, Eckhart Tolle.
I could write about everything I learned and what I loved the most, but I think it would be more fitting to ask a question to whom ever reads this review...
Are you truly awake? Do you want understanding about what you feel and why you feel the way you do?
After finishing this book I now truly understand how deeply I was sleeping and how I have robbed myself from truly living! I now write this post more awake than I have ever been... Thank you!
To your Awakening! Be open minded and enjoy the ride. You will not be disappointed.
