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.

I have listened to this book three or four times already. Each time I listen I find new deep insites into the depths of being. as I listen I become more and more connected to the truth.
Phenomenal book. This comes from someone who really loves and cares about this world.
A quick and easy read, and yet the depth of the realization of what is being said, one should take the time to absorb. Hearing this being read directly from Tolle is a real privilege. I am very grateful for this book.
Tolle's words shall leave you with a deeper understanding of who YOU are vs what your mind/ego is. Empower yourself to choose life, joy, acceptance and enthusiasm, letting go of the suffering we experience which we do often are the creators of in the first place.
Just not impressed with Freud meets meditation and throw in a little Jesus.
Someone that has a better accent, Tolle's accent distracted from the book.
