Publisher's Summary

To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace. They can be used to bring you into the Now, the present moment, where problems do not exist. It is here you find your joy and are able to embrace your true self. It is here you discover that you are already complete and perfect.

Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle offers simple language in a question and answer format. The words themselves are the signposts to guide you on your journey. There are new discoveries to be made along the way: you are not your mind, you can find your way out of psychological pain, authentic human power is found by surrendering to the Now. When you become fully present and accepting of what is, you open yourself to the transforming experience of The Power of Now.

    "Keep this in your current reading list"
    Where does The Power of Now rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best.


    What other book might you compare The Power of Now to and why?

    No others do as good a job of teaching you how to enter the "now."


    Any additional comments?

    I am listening to this book for the third time. I listen to it on my way to work 2-3 times a week. My attitude is dramatically improved when I am regularly listening in this way. I have less stress and more joy.

    "Expanding and actionable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Listening to The power of Now can be a transforming experience. Looking at life through a pragmatic presentation of ancient wisdom. This book doesn't assume any religious background. So the presentation is much more actionable and less confrontational against current beliefs we may have.


    What other book might you compare The Power of Now to and why?

    The Power of Intention -- Wayne Dyer, The Thousand Names of Joy --Byron Katie


    What does Eckhart Tolle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Author readings emphasize the parts of the book that they believe have the strongest value.

    "Self Realization"
    Any additional comments?

    When I was in college, I used to suffer from sleep paralysis. This is when your mind wakes up in the night, but your body stays asleep. In other cultures the translation for this condition is “demon on your chest” because you are completely overcome with fear, and since you can open your eyes, you see things in the room that are not there… aliens, monsters, demons… it is the same for anyone who experiences it (the worst fear you can imagine and seeing terrible things in your room). Many people think victims of “alien abduction” are really just experiencing sleep paralysis when they see aliens in their room experimenting on them in the night. Anyways, I would wake to sleep paralysis probably 3-5 times a night, sometimes I was scared to fall asleep just because I knew it would happen. Upon researching, I came across an article that said if when you realize you are in sleep paralysis, you can turn it into a lucid dream by forcing yourself to close your eyes and imagining where you wanted to be, a happy place. A lucid dream is when you become conscious in a dream and can control it. Since you are conscious in sleep paralysis, it made sense. That night I awoke to a terrifying sleep paralysis episode. Remembering what I had read, I forced myself to close my eyes, and thought “beach, beach, beach” and then there I was, on the beach in the sun. I summoned a friend and we enjoyed the rest of my dream. That morning, I was so excited I’d learned this new trick and couldn’t wait to try my new trick again. To my bewilderment, I never experienced sleep paralysis again after that night. What had changed? It was like clockwork, every single night for as long as I could remember, and it just stopped happening.
    I was listening to the book, and he discusses something called “pain bodies”. These describe negative emotions such as fear, anger, and sadness. He says if you feed in to them and believe them to be a part of who you are, they will manifest more because they feed off your negative energy and grow until they become a part of who you think you are. But he said our true selves are pure love, our unconscious selves, and if you can be aware of your TRUE self, and observe these negative pain bodies, recognize them, and not give in to them, they will cease to exist, because you are not giving them the energy to grow. I personally found this quite fascinating, and realized that must have been what happened with my sleep paralysis situation. I became aware of what it was, overcame it, and it no longer existed. It did not have a reason to stick around anymore. Realizing I could apply this to real life fears and anxieties really opened my eyes. This book is a great tool in assisting a spiritual awakening, and becoming your true self, not the separate entities of emotions and consciousness that occupy it. To become conscious of the unconscious and bring your true self to the surface, and learn the difference between thoughts and being. A great tool for anyone dealing with depression or just wanting to learn how to “tune in” or wake up.

    "The power of now is amazing "

    I've listened to many audio books, by far this is one of the most thought provoking books I've read to date. I've read it several times to get a complete understanding of what surrendering means.
