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.

Althought I don't agree some positions, they 're "non fondamental", while all the structure and content is so solid that succeed in pointing what the title promise. I've never write a review, because I'm not a reviewer, and english is not my language, but for this work I literally feel driven to say : "simply absorbe it to implement in your life"
Outstanding book! This will be one of my favorite books to listen to! Def a repeat! Wow Thanks Tolle! Audible rules
The thoughtfulness embarked upon to capture in writing the truths unveiled in this book is extremely rare. I know my life has been impacted and undoubtedly for the the better.
If you didn't read the first book entitled "the power of now" you should read or listen to it beforehand. It will be the foundation for which this book will follow.
This book summarizes the essence of all true spiritual teachings in a contemporary manner that is easily understandable to the person seeking true inner peace.
The narration was the author. He read with a calm and soothing voice. Though this book doesn't give you concrete examples of what purpose looks like, it definately gives you all the tools you need to find it.
While reading through the later chapters of this book, I was on an early morning jog (not listening to the book, but reflecting on the material) ... then I implemented one of the tools from the book. I choose to look around me and I take notice of everything around me. It quickly pulled me out of being lost in thought and created space. While in this state of extreme receptivity, I got hit with purpose.
If you are ready to open yourself to purpose, read this audiobook.
