Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents listeners with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.
Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.
In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are, which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are, and learn to live and breathe freely.

The audible book is life changing, for those prepared. After listening excellent material from Dr Wayne and other good teachers, Eckhart Tolle take us to the next level. Following his guidance depression, anxiety are gone. Peace at least now. You can go on you tube and get a preview. Strongly recommend if you have been looking for the answers other then antidepressants and explanation about all this madness around us.
Well put! Tolle puts difficult concepts into very easy to understand terms. I got very excited listening to this book and will likely by a hard copy for reference. He uses examples from the words of the Buddha and Jesus and explains them in a way that not only "makes sense" but left me saying, "Oh, NOW I get it!" I highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with "what is my purpose in this short life?"
I have the hard copy book which I love to read but wanted something to help me sleep and Eckharts voice is perfect! It is so relaxing, smooth like butter! I put it on right before bed and it puts me right to sleep as if I had a sleeping pill.
I would not recommend this book to anyone and I struggled to complete the entire book. It was recommended that I read this book by a good friend. I only completed the book in order to keep my word.
This book should be required reading for the entire human race. In 41 years on this earth I have never encountered such a precise decoding of the trappings of thought and ego versus the true nature of being. I look forward to rereading this book on a regular basis.
