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.

Unfortunatelly the voice of the author makes the listener tired in the first minute. The author speaks too slowly, as if he was in a lecture. I don't recommend this audio book,
I'd rather read the book.
The story is good, but his voice makes the listener tired. There is too many breaks during the explanation.
I could not listen until the end.
I would recommend, that not the author, but someone who has a strong voice would present this audio book.
The journey is a daily dose of reality served up by Master E. His wry sense of humor is tangible.
There is a genuine sense of intimacy in the setting. You are given a wonderful opportunity to attend this momentary event.
I particularly enjoyed the narration from this extraordinary individual.
More of a daily read to touch home in this moment.
A.udible is a great & inexpensive way to stay in touch with books
I am really enjoying the way he is delving into the structure of his ideas. I find listening to him live is so refreshing. He laughs a lot and I can't help but smile and giggle when he does. It is so wonderful and refreshing.
I am still listening to this but felt a need to express the joy I am getting from listening to this lecture. I am really understanding his teachings better and find him to be very approachable. Really, the thing I like best is his laughing and jokes. He has a great sense of ease while discussing some rather hard to explain spiritual concepts.

I love every single part of this journey. Specially the silence between words (you will appreciate them too after you listen to this audio). Lots of laughs and many things (or one thing actually) you learn about yourself like drama, body pain, living in the vertical dimension.If you are looking and discovering enlightenment or i think it is important if you are deeply into this and you like to understand the core concepts beyond techniques, this will be something that you will enjoy.The questions add lots of value and to listen to this couple times and try to be listen to it in the "Now", you will be amazed how each time you will get fulfillment from it.
Although, you might think that when he talks very slow and low steady tone, that this will be really boring! However, you will find him really funny and his way of narrating this is very useful and it is aligned with the topic. Because Echart talks about silence and stillness, he resembles all aspects of stillness.
Be still and know I am God.
If you're a fan of Mr Tolle's books you will love this. Even in silence Eckhart teaches you peace. One of the most charming things about this book is Eckhart's humor. He makes you laugh and he makes you STOP thinking.;)
My favorite authors are Carl Hiaasen and Tim Dorsey. I love books written with a sense of humor. NO ROMANCE. LOL
I did enjoy this as I do all of Eckhart Tolle books. I actually found the "lauging monk" very funny. After reading reviews i had expected him to be much worse than he actually was. I have the feeling that he may have been a person who was remembering how he used to deal with stressful things in the past. He probably related to how rediculously seriously he took everything. He may have had a beautiful change in his life because of Eckhart Tolle. HOWEVER, I would not have wanted to be in the seat next to him. LOL. But then Eckhart would have called that an excellent chance to practice the power of now.
Since I'm a Tolle fan my opinion will be a bit biased as I feel all his books are worth a read/listen. I love his voice. He's soothing. It's like meditation.
I ranks at the top.
The entire story. It's life changing, thought provoking and difficult to put into words. I know I will listen to both parts,,, probably forever over and over because it is that deep.
His melodic voice and clear and concise explanations.
Yes. Some laughing no crying.
I'm halfway through this and while i enjoy some of the stuff he has to say. Every second sentence he makes himself laugh. Example Him: "When something bad happens your ego looks for someone to blame" /laughter and crowd laughs even harder Me: /scratching my head in confusion cause i don't understand why he is laughing.
There is also one member of the crowd who has a very annoying laugh. I would love if someone did a version where his and the crowds laughter is edited out
