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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Narration"

    I am sure that this book is very good, but I could not hear the content over the narration of Tolle's voice as his narration sidetracked me from the meaning of his words. I was focusing on how he said the words rather than the content of the words. I guess I need to actually read the book.

    "So Powerful"

    When I began listening to this audiobook, I almost immediately thought 'Uh-oh, I don't know if I can listen to this'. I stuck with it and have listened to it three or four times and have got more from it each time. If you are looking to be entertained and motivated by someone speaking in an excited tone of voice, then you probably won't enjoy this audiobook, you may get more by reading the actual book, or you may not get anything out of either. The teachings in this book are so powerful, it just might be too much for some. For those of you that are ready......Enjoy!

    "depressing in a word"

    this book is spiritual, very spiritual to a point that i don't think is described in the notes. i listened to the first four hours hoping to grasp to story/message but i could not continue. the reader is just so BORING. listen to the audio sample before you purchase. give this a pass if your looking for something entertaining.

    "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.

    "Narration problem"

    Unfortunately I too found the author's voice difficult to listen to... it's my own fault for not listening to the sample first. I was just so eager to get this book! But I just could not get past a certain point -my American ears were straining to understand what he was saying. I feel bad for saying it but that was my honest experience.

    "Excellent"

    Although I need to rewind occasionally (the subject matter is rather deep, and unlike books I can't go back a couple of paragraphs to re-read when I notice that my mind has wandered...such is the nature of an audiobook), this book is so wonderful! No hype here - just excellent, wonderful words of wisdom. His voice is so soothing and melodic; didn't take long on a flight to doze off listening! Well worth the money and time! :)

    "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.

    "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.
