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 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...
Eckhart Tolle sound very boring at first but if you push through it you understand why he speaks that way.
He's speaks to your souls almost and it awakens almost immediately. Really great book for those ready to bless this earth.
Love, Light & Eternal Blessings
Love the information <3 Wonderful Recording <3 So glad Eckhart Tolle narrated - I really appreciate an author reading his own work... the meaning is transferred in a most authentic way <3
This book makes you feel like you are waking up to your own magical powers. It is science and spirit put into words masterfully. Brilliant.

Notes to get the full benefit or buy the book to highlight and listen to it again
"this is my bible"
I have read this book at least 6 times and I still find it inspirational. The more I read it the more I get it.
this is well written book and it cuts to the core of how to identify and reduce the ego. a must read!!
Essential read, Thankyou for sharing your wisdom Eckhart. Listening again just so it can absorb into my being :)
"A very profound insight but lacking in practical t"
I love Mr Tolle's work normally,and this book on the whole is quote inspiring.
I get the points he makes but I'm frustrated again by another book that points out the problem and alludes to a final solution without giving practical advice on how to achieve this while surviving in the modern world with bills to pay.
Maybe I just don't get it yet!
"Understanding ego, time & living moment by moment"
An open honest book for anyone wishing to examine their relationship with the present moment, their ego and the affects of time on all aspects of their life... A very thought provoking and enlightening read :)
Puts understanding and description to the undrlying feelings we all have in our daily lives.
Absolutely fantastic book. I love Eckhart Tolle's teaching. He is truly inspirational author who has helped my a huge amount. Thank You!
"A thought provoking, brilliant book"
The author eloquently describes what is almost impossible to put into words. This is the kind of book you absorb rather than simply read.
"I love Eckhart Tolle.
It's life changing stuff. And I'm totally sold. I need my ego to stop trying to figure it out as it's mind bending stuff.
great book, well explained if you are ready to accept it's message, if not then file it away until you are
