I am in the process of reading all of Eckhart's work. I listen to his audiobooks over and over again, in the car, on walks, at the gym, etc. and I find the stillness, the presence, in everything. When I was 5 during great turmoil in my family life I had a realization of the Now but since have lost touch except for brief moments, usually during physical challenges like sailing to Mexico or riding my bicycle 400 miles.
Eckhart Tolle's work has made those moments accessible anytime, anywhere. and has changed my life. Or rather, has helped me realize my Life was there already.
I found this the most accessible of all recordings or readings of Eckhart Tolle's work. It is a beautifully satisfying work, whose sense or should I say, essence, is lyrically simple because it is just that - Essence.
Its message transcends the mere sounds that make it up. It is conveyed with humour, peace and a simple beauty. It embodies Eckhart's central themes, that Life is not Form, that each of us is not the Self, and the Oneness that is the heart of everything is, bewilderingly enough, right here now, in Presence.
Eckhart Tolle has such a humorous way of getting his points across that he makes you laugh while you are learning very insightful points. I have learned so much from this seminar. I thought the quality was good. I listen to it over and over and get something new from it each time.
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.
Just to set the record straight, I reviewed Meditation and Psychotherapy accidently as another book I got, unfortunately it will not allow me to change anything but the stars, Audible said you cannot change it or delete. the book is AWESOME! Tara Brach is Awesome! The book I was rating I returned and was aweful. sorry
I will listen to it over and over again, until I gain all of the tid bits of wisdom there.
learning that in loving someone, we love the formlessness of them and the seeing yourself in them (the formlessness of yourself) When you focus on the moment and hear a bird, take in that moment without putting a label on it, such as
Staying focused on the present moment will help me to be able to not be stressed, have already put my painbody away, but it comes up from time to time through my husband but we both recognize each others pain body and work on it. His wisdom and teaching is deep but if you get it, you will become enlightened. If you are open for change and ready to get rid of past hurts and stop thinking insensent thinking. this might not be the first read of Tolle's, this is for someone that already recognizes the pain-body and living in the now. I recommend if you are a total newbie, read Wayne Dyer's Excuses begone, that book is like a baby step book into being able to read and understand Eckhart Tolle's teachings at least for me that is what had to be. With Dyers book I was able to put past hurts, emotions that I held on to away for good and it was like a light switch. then started Listening to Tolle, I started with The power of Now, then listened to some of his smaller books Living a life of inner peace is one of my all time favorites, then living the liberated life and being free from pain-body. I could go on because I love all of his work, it is life changing and I get it! I hope this is helpful for anyone that wants to live a peaceful and kinder world.
If you are ready for a non-dual experience of life, then Eckhart Tolle will help you really get it. He is extremely intelligent but does not over-intellectualize. He keeps things simple but not over-simple. He is also funny and compassionate. As infants, we were always living in the now. This is our natural state. Tolle helps us get back there and see how we all live in a society that conditions us to stay out of the now
I like quiet walks, live in a lovely part of QLD I enjoy these books as background or a good listen, happy listening .
LOVE HIS STYLE, HIS HUMOUR IS SO DRY IT'S FUNNY IN ITSELF, KNOWLEDGEABLE MAN HAVE TO BE IN THE MOOD FOR THIS LISTEN, YES,IT'S GREAT
I'd listen to a New Earth or Power of Now first, but Tolle's message is always on point and invaluable.
His occasional humour
