A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life's Purpose | [Eckhart Tolle]

A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life's Purpose

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 and learn to live and breathe freely.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "sleeper"

    It may have been better if the author didn't read his own book. I couldn't stay awake when I listend to it. Beware, do not operate heavy equipment while listening to this book.

    "Spirituality for the introverted and childless"

    I read this book twice in a row to absorb the depth of what Tolle was trying to convey. I woke up two weeks later with amounted to a spiritual hangover, having had a holy war with my own ego.

    I realized that I could not live in this sate of egoless ever present consciousness. This may be possible for an introverted middle aged man without children and battling depression but for a parent with three young children, it is not a realistic endeavor, especially when your attention is mostly toward others and when you need to plan the daily activities of four or five people.
    I much prefer the Book of Secrets by Deepak Chopra. He treats the ego has a integral part of our human self, not as an enemy that has to be suppressed into nothingness. According to Chopra, spirituality is a layered process, not a quick (and unlikely) fix to all human pathologies.

    Eckhart Tolle has my admiration for making us aware of the nature of the human ego and for reminding us to live in the present but like any good thing, it has to be done with a certain measure. Brought too far, these teachings defeat their purpose.

    "why oh why do authors read their own books?"

    I have tried on 5 different occasions to listen to this book.... but the gutteral (german?) accent and voice droning on like an obituary makes it just impossible to listen to.
    Please, please use professional readers, especially for books over 8 hours long... I know that I will NEVER be able to listen to this reading and actually absorb any of it, which is a shame, and so far has wasted over 16 hours of my time trying to listen to the darned thing. I end up making shopping lists in my head!!!

    "An epiphany!"

    After listening to A NEW EARTH it suddenly all made sense - the universe, religions and our insatiable egoic mind, which is the source of so much pain and suffering. What's great is that the book doesn't just point out the problem, but it sparks a transformation that is part of the solution.

    "Not so great"

    I listened to this book for 2 hours and couldn't tolerate it anymore. The narration was so boring and monotone, I couldn't even concentrate on the meaning of what was being said. I'm sure it's a great book with excellent meaning, but I think I'll read it instead of listening to it on audio. I didn't rate the content as much as the audio itself.

    "Excellent"

    Listening to this book gives me a great feeling and energy, it brings to focus many simple things I often overlook on a daily basis. Lets me know that everyday is a new day to bring about happiness through understanding.
    Tolle's voice is also very soothing. Great for drives while in traffic!
    Highly recommend this audio book, and the hard copy.

    "AMAZING!"

    This book haunted me for weeks in stores.. everywhere I went it jumped out at me and I wondered who is this 'Eckhart Tolle'? I had never heard of him but was certainly being led to him, needless to say I ignored it and thought to myself I'll look into it later when I'm not so busy.

    A week later I met up with a very special lady friend of mine and she says to me "I picked up this book today, not sure why or for who but I have one of my own and I've decided I'm going to give it to you. She brings out the book and there it is again! 'A New Earth' by Eckhart Tolle!! I just about fell off my chair!

    'OMG!' I say: 'You are not going to beleive this but this book has been haunting me for a few weeks now. Everywhere I go see it, it's as if it is there calling me but I've been ignoring it and here you re placing it directy in my hands! She says: 'Well... I guess you were the one I was to give it too!'

    That night I went home and began reading the book , soon after my husband began reading it as well. To be honest with you, I haven't been able to get enough of Eckhart Tolle's teachings. I have devoured everyone of his books and have listened to them on Audiobook form over and over. Both my husband and my life has changed in so many ways and continues to do so every day. Together we are walking towards the light and it is exilerating!

    Thank you Eckhart Tolle for writting such wonderful books. Your tools are helping us to shed our ego's and break free from darkness.

    "Listen again and again..."

    Tolle draws from the ancient philosophies, strings them all together and presents them in a way that you can really apply to your life in these challenging times.
    I was so inspired reading this book and have recommended it to so many people.
    Applying this philosophy as a parent enriches your relationship with your children, your work, your relationships and your life in general. It is not about trying to be 'egoless', it is more about being conscious of the ego... acknowledging when it is in control and being able to let that go.
    I recommend this book to anyone on a spiritual journey... anyone who struggles with sleeplessness... anyone who suffers from anxiety... read it with an open heart.

    I work to keep my reviews free of plot spoilers. I hate reviews that tell you the whole story. That said, I do love reading reviews!

    "Hum"

    While I really am drawn to the author's take on the world, how to approach life and view oneself I disappointingly was surprised by his reading voice. This sense of surprise was quickly replaced by an interesting problem of being drawn into the voice and losing tract of what he was saying. Then, I found that the reading was possibly the best remedy for insomnia ever invented. Try as I did, repeatedly to stay awake and really listen to his message I never could. I shelved the recorded book and moved on to a text copy which I give a whole hearted thumbs up. Oh well, Audible I applaud your efforts at having the author read his own book, but for me it just didn't work out.
