Well put! Tolle puts difficult concepts into very easy to understand terms. I got very excited listening to this book and will likely by a hard copy for reference. He uses examples from the words of the Buddha and Jesus and explains them in a way that not only "makes sense" but left me saying, "Oh, NOW I get it!" I highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with "what is my purpose in this short life?"
I have the hard copy book which I love to read but wanted something to help me sleep and Eckharts voice is perfect! It is so relaxing, smooth like butter! I put it on right before bed and it puts me right to sleep as if I had a sleeping pill.
I would not recommend this book to anyone and I struggled to complete the entire book. It was recommended that I read this book by a good friend. I only completed the book in order to keep my word.
This book should be required reading for the entire human race. In 41 years on this earth I have never encountered such a precise decoding of the trappings of thought and ego versus the true nature of being. I look forward to rereading this book on a regular basis.
Before I started to read this book I was at a job that I fundamentally did not enjoy. I was bleeding stress from the minute I woke up to minute I went to sleep. I had massive amounts of resentment towards my boss who was also my friend. This book could not have came to my life at a better time. It taught me how to be Present with my current situation and to let go of negative emotions. Withing the last 3 months I have a new job I love and get to help people. My stress level is non existent. I was a worrier with stress and anxiety almost all the time. Now I can accept what is and be at peace. Everything happens for a reason. If this book has come to you or someone you know it's for a purpose. Don't fight it, embrace it and enjoy.
