It's certainly an extreme book, has many good perspective building thoughts. Especially for people who are extremely regretful, defensive and hold grudges.
LIKED: I'm onboard for the openness mentality here. That said, you can't accomplish much if you don't set long term goals and only focus on the present.
I also appreciated the blockage chapters. Don't allow emotions to harbor, then you just build more and more defensive walls to guide your life within those walls. Don't do that, be open. Willing to let life continue as it will.
DISLIKED: Live each day likes it's your last... don't burn your resources to adhere to this. Don't forget your knowledge and experiences to fulfill this present only mindset.
It's worth a read.
This has got to be the finest books ever. I'm reading it repeatedly till I have it memorized. I am that impressed with how simply it was explained and progressed till the end. My life was feeling it's way there. This book opened my eyes a turned on the lights. thank you!
I have listened to it several times. 4 times at least. Reason? It had a lot to offer and it couldn't be absorbed all at once, To actually practice what this book teaches, one has to study it.
The Power of Now by Eckart Tolle
I did have an extreme reaction to it, but it didn't make me laugh or cry. It helped me with so many things real time and in my past. I react to and address emotions completely differently now.
I was glad that I listened to "The Surrender Experiment" by Michael Singer (the same author) first. Because I wouldn't have appreciated it as I did otherwise because it held so much more weight having read that book first.
I just finished this book and I'm already to restart it! If you are looking for growth, this book will help. It has given me so much meaning and guidance in life. I am extremely grateful to the author for blessing me so much!
If you liked the power of now or books like it, then you'll love the remarkable way the author guides you on a journey into how your mind disconnects you from the "now" and is holding you back in more ways than you can possible imagine. This books will go down as an all-time classic. Everyone I recommend it to says much the same. The result of reading and applying what's in this book is a life of expansion, freedom and joy. The ability to quiet that voice in your head and BE while you DO. 💛👍👍💛
I love it ! it's one of the best choices I have ever made about reading a book ,I wish I had come across it earlier but I greatly appreciate it.
