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.

This book is life changing. It is an added treat that it is read by the author. I listened to it every chance I got and will relisten to it many times. For those on a spiritual path, this will enhance and speed your journey.
Eckhart Tolle does not complicate this very complex subject. Using his wisdom, example and understanding of human nature, the author brings forth the ingredients for personal and global coherence. He leaves it up to the reader to take their journey along this path of opening to a sense of one's own contribution to this evolutionary process. I highly recommend this book to anyone ready to contemplate life from within and with depth.
quite one of the most profound writers of our time. thank goodness I am lucky enough to have read this its really been intrumental in changing my life
The subject matter is ponderous to begin with and with the author as narrator, this presentation is good only to aide people with insomnia, in my opinion and experience.
I wish I would have just bought the book and read it, it is a HORRIBLE recording. A machine or something. So hard to get through!
Seriously? The recording is awful, awful, awful. I cant keep my eyes open and I listen to text books.
A waist of 9 hour! Leave your ego behind. Be a good person. Don't sweat the small stuff. You have now covered everything in this book in 8 hours and 45 seconds less time.
I really like Tolle's work. I wish someone else's voice was used for the audio book, but the content outweighs the detriments of Tolle's voice.
"Even better as a talking book"
I loved this book when I was first give it in India by a wonderful and selfless man who thought I needed it (and I did). I will ever be in his debt. This book truly changed my life by changing the way I respond to the 'chattering' in my head. I hope it will do the same for you. Buy it and listen, but be warned, this is not a book for the car, I found my concentration was on the book and certainly not on the road.
The way it was told
I cannot compare it to any other book since it is unique.
Made me stronger as a person.
This book has enabled me to deal with some very difficult situations of late. Having bookmarked several areas in the book - I find myself returning back to those bookmarks and listening again and again to gather infinite wisdom!
"One of the best..."
This is one of the best books I have ever read. If you want to make the most out of it, listen, pause and think. Maybe also grab a pen and some paper and jot down ideas. You won't regret it!
"Ecstasy for the soul"
If you're looking for a new and meaningful perspective on life then this could be just the tonic. This book really made me stop and
Echart's Voice is so easy on your ears, a little strange at first but in the long run he's addictive
There is no point in answering all the questions as this book, you are either ready for or your not, ultimately read it with your mind wide open and if you do allot of stuff just sorts itself.
Thank you Echart for this wonderful contribution to explaining LIFE as it should be (im my opinion)
"Pure Genius... but play it a double speed"
Seriously I love the work of Eckhart Tolle but if I had listened at normal speed I would have had to give this a 1 star review. He speaks so painfully slowly and without any drama or character to his voice that it is almost impossible to listen.
The audible app allows you to play back at different speeds and what do you know if you play him at 1.5x he sounds much better.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
