The Now is inseparable from who you are at the deepest level. It is the prerequisite of Being. As you listen to the words on this tape, you participate in the retreat. To "retreat" means to step back - not only from the outer world, but also from the world in your head, the thinking mind. Allow the sound of the words to take you beyond words and beyond sound to the stillness within. Allow the Now to be as it is and so realize the formless essence of the Now as consciousness itself.
Suggested practice: use the lesson throughout the day.
Blessings on your Journey into your Self.

Eckhart Tolle's message is great, but you would think the crowd thinks he's Chris Rock as much as they're laughing - it's not that funny people. Particularly this one lady with this cackling laugh - I didn't know Nelson from the Simpsons was into spiritual awakening. I swear she's there so you can practice acceptance of what is.
Be the space which allows yourself to be yourself. When you listen to Eckhart explain how important it is to be present with yourself amidst the world of illusory form, you know that this is you communicating with yourself, your inner self and not your mind.
There have been comments from other reviewers talking about a heckler in the crowd. There is no heckler. If you pay close attention, the breaths and the laughter and the noises are directly from Eckart himself. Beyond that, this book is an absolute beautiful rendition of our journey taking us through This life not only in our physical being but also in our metaphysical being. Allowing ourselves to be present in the now is something that is definitely a lost art in today's society of massive social media outlets, prolific journalism outlets, and of course our own endless mind chatter. The lessons taught in this book are some of the most beautiful yet simple lessons life has to offer. I am greatly humbled to have joined Eckart Tolle on this journey and I thank him for taking the time to make these recordings.
Content and author are as impactful as always. The loud and sometimes inappropriate laughter of one participant was distracting.
I have not read the print version
Eckhart, of course
His sincerity and knowledge were imparted with the perfect combination of sincerity and humor to make his lecture both informative and interesting.
Listening to this audiobook, I was struck but the author's profound understanding of the truth.
Many commented about the "inappropriate laughter". If you think the laughter was inappropriate you did not understand the teaching at all.
