Publisher's Summary

The Now - this moment - is the true source of happiness and peace and the key to living a fulfilled and meaningful life. Embracing the Now by Gina Lake is a collection of short essays about the Now that can serve as daily reminders of the deepest truths. Full of clear insight and wisdom, it explains how the mind keeps us from being in the Now, how to move into the Now and stay there, and what living from the Now is like. It also explains how to overcome stumbling blocks to being in the Now, such as fears, doubts, judgments, misunderstandings, distrust of life, desires, and other conditioned ideas that are behind human suffering.

Excellent

Would you consider the audio edition of Embracing the Now to be better than the print version?

Gina Lake and Eckhart Tolle are two of the most relevant authors today on the subject of consciousness and being present in the Now. Another great recommendation is a book by Michel Leroux called "Revolution of the Heart". I hope Audible offers this hard cover book in audio form soon. http://www.amazon.com/Revolution-Heart-Michel-Leroux/dp/1483601463

What other book might you compare Embracing the Now to and why?

Most Valuable Book Ever

All you will ever need to know to gain enlightenment is in this book. Read it, and then you will read it again and again. Each time will provide deeper understanding. It is complete knowledge of yourself and our world.

Had this been submitted to me to satisfy

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

a college level term paper requirement, I would have failed her. It is painfully repetitive, lacking innovation or fresh perspective. The material and standard could not have been any more transparent in the great body of work by Eckart Tolle. She credits him of course, then proceeds to restate his work: Quite astonishing.

Would you recommend Embracing the Now to your friends? Why or why not?

no
