This is an excellent audiobook. It is repetitious, yes from the Power of Now but he the more you listen to it and don't try to figure it out, you will understand what he is trying to convey to you by just listening with and open mind. If you DO NOT have deep sorrow or need to find how to control your mind and seT your mind at peace then this book is not for you. It is to be listened to and listened to and then it all comes together. Little by little the words are consoling, and enlightening. I would recommend getting POWER OR NOW first and then listening to this book.
This book should be listened to after you listen to the POWER OF NOW. He continues on with learning how to deal with life situations and show you how to live in the now instead of wanting to be in some future moment where you think things will be better. You don't know what the future holds, as your mind usually can always find something to hold you back from doing what you really want. The past may be painful as well, the perceived future is not here yet, SO ALL YOU HAVE IS THE NOW and Eckhard shows you how to make the best of it even if you are in a bad or uncomforatable state of now. Believe me, I did not realize how much of my life I wasted away by not being in the NOW of life but by being burdened with the problems of tomorrow, or trying to to figure out the pain of the past. I was robbing myself of the greatest gift of all, the present moment! The present moment is all you have. I never gave that a thought until I got started listening to Eckhart's books. The thoughts he gives you are like a key that unlocks the door you have been longing to go through. But all the while, not realizing you already have the key within in you to move forward in life while enjoying the present moment. You do not miss out on life, you solve problems, or accept things from the past in order to free yourself from past pain or whatever it is that is holding you back from enjoying the now, this very minute you live. I listen to this audiobook again and again. I am so glad to have found this man and his books. You just need to listen and not figure out what he is trying to say, because the questions and what-if's will be answered later on in the book. This is a truly Excellent book to take with you to help figure out life and how to deal with problems, and STILL HAVE NOW , the present moment to enjoy. I most highly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed.
If you are not in a state of wanting to be free from incessent and compulsive thought and be in the NOW instead of the future, which is not here only in your mind or in the past, which is only an illusion then this book is not for you. If you truly want to be free from constant problematic and incessant thinking take a listen to this audiobook. Just as in life, you cannot listen to it once and expect to change, you must listen to it again, and again. But, it will not be a chore to listen to, you will want to listen to it. He laughs a little in it, but isn't what you want to do? Laugh, think of it. Being able to transform your thinking into positive energy instead of dread or durdgery every day. You must listen to this book. I never thought that I could do what he says until I started practicing his methods. My thinking is different, and the way I look at situations and people around me are so much more positive. I recommend this highly to anyone who wants to free their mind of constant mind chatter, which is usually negative. I listen again, and again to this and all of his books. He truly is a great person.
Eckhart has a way of dealing with words that many people do not. He teaches you how to deal with deep sorrow in your soul and how to learn to know when the pain in your mind is trying to take over. I listened to this over and over again and it gives such great insight your thinking and how your thinking influences the way that you feel. And not only that, but to teach you the way to deal with pain and make it less, until it is almost gone. I never thought I could get rid of some of the pain in my life, but Eckhart reveals in a soothing and positive way the most simpelest way of dealing with lifes problems. I never thought that I could deal with past pain, or feel past pain and deal with it, but Eckhart reveals the way to do it and it is within yourself, truly, to do away with strife. This is an EXCELLENT BOOK to listen to over again. You learn something new every time you hear the words spoken. This is a must listen to book, you will miss out on life it you don't hear it. Truly....
This is an excellent audiobook. If you just listen and don't try to figure out what he is trying to convey, you will unterstand by just listening and absorbing what he is saying. I have listened to this audiobook many times, and it has helped me tremendously. I will continue to listen to this book as I find something new everytime I listen to it.
