If you haven't read the Power of now and the new earth you will feel lost. If you have, it's a good listen, but not my favorite.
He doesn't get to the heart of it. Anger is just an emotion, you need to be the witness and the book lacks that teaching. I don't think it should be labeled Zen. That said its a good starter book, but honestly not one I would recommend as a self help or spiritual guide.
So far I haven't read anyone who can mix science and spirituality like DC. I gave it 4 stars overall (wish I could go 4.5) because it wasn't a book I could listen to long. Some stuff required rewinding a couple times, but I still enjoyed the journey.
All I can say is, why not? These rules/laws are a wonderful addition to anyone's life.
Fantastic if you follow Tolle, but I think it would leave you confused or mystified if you hadn't read his books. If you have then it another fantastic adventure.
I liked the book, but since I've read so many of these I felt like it fell in the self help category rather than spiritual awaking. It was lacking the true essence of awakening. Books like "the power of now" or "the new earth" teach it different. They teach it through mindlessness. I would give this book to someone who didn't believe they had voices in their head. This book is really good at teaching you to realize that, but I felt at the end it was lacking or maybe that's the best thing about it, makes people want to know more.
This book is really slow, but that's the point, to slow the mind, to awaken the stillness inside you. I wouldn't buy this book as your first Eckhart Tolle book. As always Eckhart doesn't disappoint.
This is a great book to use as a refresher for the power of now or as a introduction. If this is your first Eckhart Tolle book then I think it is a great book to see if your ready for his teachings. You will either feel the desire to know more or you will not. If you want to jump in head first then read, the power of now first and use this as a refresher.
Read before a new earth. A new earth is my favorite, but they compliment each other. If you have trouble listening to him, you may want to set it aside because you are not ready and it would be a shame to not try again. Set it aside and try again the moment you are ready.
Anyone who has trouble with his speaking and dealing with the ego has missed the point and you may not be ready for this book. I spend my time being a mother, wife and I also compete at sports for a living, so ego and pain bodies are all around me all the time. If you start to get stumped listen to the woman's story (chapter 6 start part two) over and over. You will get a moment of enlightenment if you are ready. When I start to feel like I am fighting the ego or other peoples I listen to this. Fighting is just adding another layer. You also need to remind yourself that compulsive thinking is an addiction and it's not going to go away instantly, sorry life is not that easy. I would recommend reading the power of now. This book is my favorite, but I wouldn't have been able to absorb it as easily without the power of now.
