WOW! Many authors and religions put forth the concept of living in the NOW but this is the first book that really put it all together for me. Provides real world practical advice on how to achieve the desired state which has actually worked for me. This book changes the way you see the world which changes you in the process. This is a must read for all of humanity.
This is a beautiful spiritual writing. I enjoy listening to it to the very end. Perhaps the author is right, when he expects the audience to come back to it every now and then. It's the kind of book that you will want to listen to it again. If you want to find peace, come to this book. Happiness comes as a "side-effect".
Thanks heaven for this work to be around, so I know that humanity exists.
This is the most important book I have ever read. I come from a Judeo-Christian background, and am new to "enlightenment" and such ideas. However, from a purely psychological standpoint, this book is brilliant. The integration of what are unarguable truths about man's psychology with spirituality is lucid, but optional. Read this book. It will change your life, immediately, for the better. It will clarify many issues in your life, including relationships, as well as troublesome events in your past. If the world would read this book, there would be hope for the future of man. Hearing the audio in the voice of Eckhart Tolle adds to the book. It is a great, life changing book. Read it.
Short and Simple, Clear and Packed With Content worth listening to
Best book for me ever
I'll do my best to spread the word about the power of NOW!
About the best I can say is that this was a good book to fall asleep with...Eckhart Tolle's voice is perfect for lulling one into sleep.
I don't regret listening, but would not bother listening to anything else by the same author. To paraphrase Dorothy Parker, "There is just not enough there...there." This is not enough of a new take on life (either generally or -- as the title suggests -- living in the moment) to offer illumination or guidance.
This book changed how I see the world and all the things, that seemed so "normal" to achieve (bigger, better..) Don't read (listen) if you object Tolle's voice or if you looking for new stuff to add to your "mind". You'll be happier with a "How to...in 7 days" book. Tolle can give you a new way to just "be" but it will not be something your mind could achieve, because it won't let you just be. I found this book to be the most important in my life so far. As long as you judge authors by how they live though (be it on a park bench or in a big home) you're definetly not ready for it.
Since I began a yoga practice almost a years ago, I have been looking for ways to extend the physical benefits to my mental practice. While I found the Autobiography of a Yogi very good, and also some of Deepak Chopra's writings, this book really crystallized what I have been intuitively moving toward with my mental and physical practice. It is so compelling I have now listened to it two times and am beginning the third. I cannot recommend it too highly. . .if you are ready. . . I don't think I would have been a year ago and without the foundation of the yoga practice.
Im not a religious person but had to use this heading because I read this every day, just like some people do with the Bible. it is fantastic how, when I just open it at any page for the day it has something relavent for me pertaining to the day. Just one paragraph or sentence can speak volumes to me. it is not a book that you read from cover to cover and certainly not in one sitting.
...and now I've totally confused you (and myself) because I am supposed to be reviewing the audible version I suppose. Yes I have both and yes my review applies equally to both versions only a snippet at one sitting!
