Amazing...points to the sacred within us all. Puts the meaning of life into view...look from within.
This book is truly enlightening. it contains so many nuggets of truth. I've listened to it many times, and I learn something new each time.
Are you ready to wake up from "that" foginess? Personally I have been waiting too long and finally found a work that speaks to me and my is inclusive to someone with a christian upbringing and a scientific inclination - this is it
I always enjoy reading books by Eckhart Tolle. If you combine them with Caroline Myss books you get a real wake up! Here in this book the author talks about how to wake up and why we're waking as a species to the existence of the pain body along with how it controls us along with how to get rid of it. If you combine this book with Entering the Castle you get a real good wake up punch. If you add You are the Answer: Discovering and Fulfilling You Souls Purpose by Michael J. Tamura you will see the pain body and be able to release it. Trust me it's not easy, but you can do it!
I have listened to this book eight times at least, and pick up more insight each time. I could probably listen to it a hundred more times and learn more each time. Very interesting book, definitely the most spiritual (not religious) book I know of. I only wish that all people could absorb this authors knowledge. So grateful to have encountered it.
Tolle tries to reduce human psychology to coloring books and crayons. He insults and manipulates.
His explanations rely on little to no evidence. He starts off with a mesmerizing tale about humanity, and then delves into ego as though it is completely uncontrollable. He even insults victims by blaming people's actions on something he deems the 'painbody'. What makes it even more infuriating is the beginning when he claims that if you don't accept his beliefs and move closer to enlightenment it is because you are an un-evolved being and cannot.
He claims there are many forms of ego, but then says his ego is not a part of those forms because he thinks in a neutral, which cannot possibly be a form. What? How is this not absorbed as foolishness and insult to the world? When you claim that your way of thinking is the best way (by best from his perspective it would be to reach enlightenment) that is just being egotistical...
This book sounds like a re-telling of the concepts told in the "Power of Now" but in different words. It's good, but not as good as the Power of Now, which in my opinion is brilliant and mind opening.
Power of Now
I really liked the story of the Monks. Else, as always, the voice of Mr. Tolle is very soothing and relaxing.
You could listen in in one sitting, but I prefer listening during commutes.
If you had to chose only one book, I would recommend "The Power of Now". To me "A New Earth" was a review of the concepts, but pretty much the same idea. I also liked the "conversation" format of "The Power of Now" better.
If you are open to it, ready this book will change your life. After I listened to the whole audio something truely started to change in me and my life. Eckharts voice is soothing as well as educational and helps to transform you
