It makes you stop, stop and think... I would advise to listen after listening 'The Journey Into Yourself' as a first by the same author. Both are great but to better grab the first listen the second first!
Utter nonsense, give it a miss and use your credits on something else that's not total tosh.
"A Very Worthy Listen"
This popularity of this title stirred my interest. A quick google search revealed a lot of people who found its contents to be life changing and I've since heard of some groups that meet regularly to discuss its content or "teachings". I was a little sceptical but curious none the less. Eckhart Tolle's voice is very mellow and soothing so it makes for easy listening. I like the way he has alternate voices posing questions on his teachings which he then responds to (though at one point in a somewhat frustrated/condescending manner - which I found rather hilarious given his calm demeanour) It gets a bit preachy in places with frequent references to god, and was a little bit far-fetched in other places. For the most part however I felt there was some very interesting ideas here that I could apply in some small way to my own life, such as letting go of past experiences through which you identify yourself with and focusing too much on a future that might never be. Although I loved his idea of relinquishing all time, even he admits himself that's its not very practical in today's world. Overall it made me feel grateful for the wonderfully imperfect circumstances which I find myself in right now - Cheers Eckhart!
"The Bible of All Self-Help Books"
If I could give something to every human being in this world it would be The Power of Now. Eckhart Tolle speaks with an authority that is so obviously from pure consciousness. I have many others in my collection, but this is the one I return to again and again. Without doubt, his words are divinely inspired.
What a load of Willies!
Tolle talks at length about his happy time sitting on a park bench, being at one with the world - but he pays no regard to the people who payed for and installed the park bench - nor the Park!
Rich people - give up your worldly goods and turn to peace
Poor people - be happy and turn to peace
Good information about relaxing which gets it 1 extra star
I doubt if Tolle believes in Stars or any of the effort that wen into gathering the scientific 'Truths' that he cherry picks to make his point
For me personally, I could relate what he was saying to past situations and it made a lot of sense. Some of his words and thoughts are repeated but I feel it is needed to fully understand the message intended. It has certainly given me a lot to think about.
best thing I have ever discovered, just listen and everything will fall into place, excellent...
Brilliantly paced, easy but intriguing listening. Read if you wish to be more with yourself. Feels truly amazing.
"Great start to learning mindfulness"
I enjoyed this book read by the author who has a calm soothing voice. Whenever I forget to be mindful and live in the now, I listen to a chapter and it has really changed my life in so many positive ways. Thought provoking, I highly recommend if you're looking to become more positive and change your life.
Absolutely Amazing book, I highly recommend this.
I will read more by Eckhart Tolle and probably listen to this book again.
I can imagine that as a physical book this would be heavy going and hard to understand fully.
But as it's an audio book, it's very easy to listen to and take in.
Thank you for such a wonderful book.
Love and Light.
