Publisher's Summary

To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace. They can be used to bring you into the Now, the present moment, where problems do not exist. It is here you find your joy and are able to embrace your true self. It is here you discover that you are already complete and perfect.

Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle offers simple language in a question and answer format. The words themselves are the signposts to guide you on your journey. There are new discoveries to be made along the way: you are not your mind, you can find your way out of psychological pain, authentic human power is found by surrendering to the Now. When you become fully present and accepting of what is, you open yourself to the transforming experience of The Power of Now.

what I was looking for my entire life

it's amazing how it relates to my current situation. I am in a relationship I feel like I don't want to be, addiction I could not overcome, and I was constantly nervous and easily annoyed. As soon as I practiced the power of now, this moment, my existence, the idea that there is only now, feel so right, changed my perspective for the better .

the best book for everything!

pros:
author as narrator
incredible insights
makes you reconsider you own mental health
awakens you (or tries to)

cons:
annoying bell ring between each chapter and sub chapter that could be the source of my tinnitus
one should get used to ekharts weird voice and let's say alternative way of reading words out loud

Life Changing!

Content was amazing! Especially with the commentary and questions presented. The hardest part to get through is his voice. However after about an hour or so, I was used to it! Great listen!!

Life changing in all ways thank you so much.

I was in a very dark time in my life when a person I just met told me about this book. I listened to it and I felt a little better. I listened to the book again and deep feelings arose in me. My ways of seeing, hearing, and feeling about myself changed. It is a great book for anyone. Thank you to everyone responsible for the this book you have helped me so profoundly.

Mind transforming

I love anything that gives me an alternate or more open way of thinking. Takes out of the brain slug we tend to find ourselves in.

Inspirational and simplistically profound

This book could really be the blueprint for a contended life and a utopian world for all. Think Star Trek style civilisation where no ego rules, only a profound and real state of being. This will lead us to the only sensible conclusion. We must change ourselves to change the world not the other way around. A fabulous audiobook no matter what your creed, religion or perception.

It will change your life...

This book is one of the most powerful I have ever read. It makes you realise that life's path is what it is and the only thing that can make that seem negative is within yourself.

Transformational

Warning: this book will change your life. But you have to be ready for it. It's absolutely life transformational for me. As a Christian I relate deeply and spiritually with the message. I agree that every spiritual truth is from one source.

Eckhart Tolle is right!

Would you listen to The Power of Now again? Why?

I have tried to take on board the teachings and tried to prevent my mind from leaving the now. Its going to take a lot of practice. Read the book and you'll understand what I mean.

The Power of Now

This book was simply amazing. I used it almost everyday and it brought me to a new outlook on life. This book gently teaches you about what's really important and how to achieve peace in everything you do! I would recommend this book to anyone. Easy to understand and a potentially life changing book. :)
