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.

    "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"

    Eckhart Tolle, is enlighted. What a gift to have such a teacher living and offering his insights. In my experience the truth is simple. In "A New Earth" as in "The Power of Now", Eckhart's words are simple yet profound. Living in the "Now" is slowly become a way of life for me and "A New Earth" is another incredible work which greatly facilitates the process. Beneficial even for first time readers or listeners of Eckhart Tolle.

    "A Revelation"

    If you are on a spiritual path, or would like to be, read this book. I recommend you combine it with Oprah's online classes from earlier this year - she discusses each chapter with Tolle and it's a wonderful guide.

    "Hard to listen to"

    I didn't finish this book because it was hard to follow. Better to read it than to listen.

    "Not as impressed as others"

    Perhaps it was the thick accent but I really did not enjoy listening to this book. It has been a week since I finished it and cannot recal one really significant point he made. I will admit that I may have lost focus earlier and that slanted my view of the entire book. However, he had nothing to tell me to capture my attention. I may give it a second chance this summer when I have time but I get a lot more out of other authors.

    "Profound yet simple in its concepts"

    The teachings presented in all of Eckhart's work are life changing. I have been known to be one of the biggest skeptics on the planet, and never thought anyone had an original idea when it comes to spirituality. I stand corrected now. I can only hope in some way, many will be drawn to and can learn this profound way of viewing the world.

    "Anger, Depression, Stress... they went away."

    Brilliant. Some people don't need this, but I certainly did! Through the simple act of tuning into what the people around me were saying & learning not to listen to the voice in my head so I can focus on the world around me, I've been able to change my life (literally).

    You don't need to be "spiritual" (I'm not and never have been) to find that the lessons in this book work.

    Pay Attention to the world & people around you - that's how you learn.
    Stop thinking the voice in your head knows anything - really! How much did I know after not paying much attention for the last 20 years? Not a thing, although I thought I had all the answers!

    Now I'm listening, learning, and giving my brain real, current information to work with instead of the stories of what I "knew".

    My thinking is clearer, more focused, and I'm having much more fun every day!

    This book was a life-changing experience for me. I still have all the same beliefs I had before, but now I'm open to understanding life with a new perspective. Wonderful!

    "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.

    "Eye opening"

    I had been wanting to read this book for some time now. Now that I've actually done that I can honestly say there is simply a calmness about life that I didn't realize has always been there I just didn't know how to achieve. My advice to anyone that listens to the audio is this; sit in a comfy spot and just be. You will be a changed person if you allow...

    This is a powerful work that would have been very challenging to sit down and read. It transmits well in this medium although remains heavy going at times.

    The performance grows on you and leaves you with such clarity.

    "Thought preventing instead of provoking"

    Having listened gently to it, I have gained insight. You do not have to study, just listen.

    It explains why thoughts make our minds murky and robs us of life.

    I will listen to it often.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Echart's Voice is so easy on your ears, a little strange at first but in the long run he's addictive


    Do you have any additional comments?

    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)

    "Extremely thought provoking"

    Or perhaps 'thought provoking' is missing the point as the underlying message is about stepping outside of your thoughts and ego. Listen to this for help sleeping and you might wake up enlightened. Definitely worth re-reading and will be checking out his other books too.
