A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

Rate this:
To make the journey into the Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. From the very first page of Eckhart Tolle's extraordinary book, we move rapidly into a significantly higher altitude where we breathe a lighter air. We become connected to the indestructible essence of our Being, "The eternal, ever present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death." Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle uses simple language and an easy question and answer format to guide us. A word of mouth phenomenon since its first publication, The Power of Now is one of those rare books with the power to create an experience in readers, one that can radically change their lives for the better.

Overall I enjoyed it. It treads the line between reasonable self-empowerment and woo-woo territory, but smart readers can tell the difference. I'd recommend this book since it presents quite a few concepts that are interesting, applicable, and are better than the "just think positively because you should" platitudes one commonly hears.

Maybe it wasn't my time to read it. I love books like this but found it very much a chore to read. the concept is good, the message wonderful just I don't really respond well to the whole Q&A style of writing for this book.

I have read The Power of Now and A New Earth several times. For some reason I never get sick of it. There are some things I don't really understand, but for the most part it resonates within. The Power of Now goes into depth about being present while A New Earth goes into detail about the ego. Books like these help me understand myself, others and life a lot more.

Definitely repetitive, but powerful. I know I will be wanting to read these words again so I will certainly be buying myself my own copy. Remember friends; nothing ever happened in the past or future. Everything happened in its unique NOW moment, so never waste too much time looking forward or back!

You can't read the book with your mind. To experience "NOW", you need to put down all your thinking, interpretation and judgment. Just FEEL it. When you judge whether the book is good or bad, you already left the presence and fell deep into the delusion you created. In other words, without your thinking, everything stays neutral with no self. People like to judge to strengthen their ego but they didn't notice that it separated themselves from the reality at the same time.

"Now" is only thing we have... if we notice it... I loved this book.

I like the idea of staying in the present, and not the past or the future but I got lost after that. It was a lofty read. Zzzzzzzzz

Very inspiring! Makes you at peace with your life as it is. Helps you to accept your life and see the good in it. Also very spiritual.
