Description

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.

Life changing

You may have to listen twice. But once you grasp the entire concept of being, this teaching will be life changing.

Most extraordinary book I have heard

I cannot overstate the wisdom contained in this book. I would not likely be able to read it, but somehow listening to Tolle speak, it makes sense. I am sincerely grateful for this book!

I LOVE this book.

Full of reminders to bring you back to present moment awareness. Be HERE, now. It s the only place there is, and it isn’t a place. Nor is it a time. It is, and I am. Now.
That is all there is.

A special tome for sprituality in our present day

This book is the key to unlocking the door to our spiritual awakening. The answers have truly been laying dormant in us all along. Are you interested in true personal enlightenment?

Our present day existence is quickly becoming mired in negativity, unhappiness and confusion. Over working leads to stress, anxiety and depression. My doctor recently told me that 80% of his patient's visits are directly related to one of these. Mental health is silently under siege and becoming the most important health issue of our current era.

Most of us are walking around disconnected from the true source/meaning of life, in an unconscious state taken over by the ego and the mind. We are constantly re-living the past and hoping for a better tomorrow all the while forgetting about the most important place of all, the Present. It is here and deep within ourselves that we can find and confront/heal our pains and be free from all fear, unhappiness and anger.

Mr. Tolle is an expert in the subject matter because he personally has dealt with such in his own life. He has mixed his experiences with his adept interpretations from other spiritual and religious teachings and combined them in a way that makes perfect sense.

I personally worked myself into the ground in the last year and have been slowly making my way back. I would never wish to relive that again but deep down inside I am glad it happened because I believe now that it was time for me to change my path in life (it's never too late). This book has opened my eyes and spirit anew, I have already made great strides in not only getting better but being happier and healthier than ever before.

I believe that Mr. Tolle wrote this book not for $$$s like most out there, but because he truly understands & cares about the current state of people's being. I have read it twice and will read it again to reinforce the important teachings that he has bestowed in this book.

If you are unhappy, wondering why you can't get over certain things from your past, or seem unable to get out of negative loops in your life... the time maybe now to get a fresh perspective and find the real meaning of it all deep down inside.

Take care and I hope you find the profound enlightenment that I did inside these pages. Thank you Eckhart, you are a modern day Sage!

Relevant and Insightful

Nothing short of perfect for where I was in my life when I read this book. It allowed me to take a step back, slow down and learn why it's neccessary to appreciate the present moment. Having listened to it over a year ago I could use another review of this book and its lessons. As it's so easy to fall back into the mindless hustle and bustle of our 'repetitive' days.

Exceptional and Life Changing

I read this book for the first time maybe 5 years ago. It pointed out so much dysfunction in myself that I threw it away... 8th time I'm reading/listening to it now... Eckhart Tolle has changed my life forever. Every Reading is going deeper. Forever Grateful for this man, book and for this existence. May this book shine Light into your life as it did in mine.

Un puissant réveil

ce livre a le pouvoir tant attendu de poser les bases d'une vie et d'une vision totalement nouvelle. il transcende a n'en pas douter les principes de notre société et challenges ses acquis.
il a le pouvoir de transformer véritablement l'individu et le monde.
je déplore cependant un manque d'exercice pratiques et très concrets

Consciousness Altering

This book caused me to realize how much my mind (ego) is generally in control of me. I had studied a number of meditative teachings, and already had the ideas in my head, but it was this book that catalyzed a clear transformation in me. There were moments where Tolle's voice (as the narrator) caused me to observe my own presence. My mind wrestled with the book, and at several points it wanted to toss the book aside, dismissing it as new-age spiritual hoo-ha (and there may be points where you try to dismiss it this way, also). But in retrospect, as I live my life, it is impossible to ignore the essential truth that Tolle has put words to. Slowly, the moments are increasing where I feel liberated from my mind's patterns of control and obsession with past/future. This was one of the most powerful books I have encountered.

AWE INSPIRING!

Eckhart Tolle's work, The Power of Now, is filled with wisdom, inspiration, and practical advice from beginning to end. He shows clearly how progress in the evolution of human consciousness is absolutely necessary for survival of life on this planet, and that it is up to each one of us to change our perception of the world in which we live if that progress is to take place. Tolle also shows how our tendency to dwell in the past and future obscures the present moment. In so doing, we fail to see what is necessary right now, thus we make wrong choices and decisions which lead to untold suffering for self and others. This work is a recipe for true happiness and if everyone followed the advice contained therein the world would be a happier place to live in. I have listened to it so many times now I have lost count. If I were shipwrecked on a desert island and I could take only one book, this would be it!

A truly inspiring and insightful book

This is a book about spirituality, and if you choose to hear it this way, God. And at the same time I believe an atheist could listen and identify with it. In fact one of the phenomenal things about this book is that an atheist, agnotstic, Christian, Muslim, and Buddhist could all sit with this book and identify with it in their own individual way, be it identifying with the individual, their god, or higher spiritual state of being.

While the book is along the spirituality line, it really reframes religions, all religions as part of the same whole. And he quotes and discusses the concept of “god” in many different religions, but ties them all back to a single concept. And specifically he discusses the teachings of Christianity and dispels, in an unbelievably eloquent way many of the misinterpretations of the original teachings that are prevalent today

But the book isn’t about God, it’s simply about one’s self, the author just pulls together western religion, eastern religion, and individual awareness in one framework and shows, with examples from various religions, and mostly from individual experience, how they all point back to the same thing.

If spirituality is not something you are interested in, and in fact it is only very minimally what I am interested in, you could as easily read and identify with this book on the level of a personal psychology guide. I believe that virtually anyone interested in their own well being will find that this book speaks to them on a level that makes sense for them in their life. To accomplish this is a truly magnificent feat, and the author has my deepest respect for accomplishing this seemingly impossible task.

I'm so glad I got this book!

Before I buy it I read all reviews, and the negative ones made me hesitate. Finally I decided to try it - and I'm so glad I did!! This book is now my all time favorite - other spirituality, self-help or philosophy books seem so unenlightened, so incomplete. A must-read for anyone with big questions, big problems, or simply not 100% happy (does this leave any one of us out?) You will love this book - if a single book can lead you to enlightenment and can elevate your consiousness above everyday problems, negativity and conflicts, then this is it!

Yes. 'Similar' to the rest in his series.

The book was well worth the credit. The concepts and theory behind these works are on the leading edge of humanity trying to figure itself out, even thou heavily based in eastern beliefs. While listening, all the concepts make sense, but in real life as usual, holding or implementing these concepts are difficult in the practical world. The concepts are presented well, but if you have never been introduced to them, further readings of his works and others is highly recommended. Getting a hold of oneself is the key to this and its sound advice, worth the read. I enjoyed this but after first listening to the "New Earth" as my first in his series I see that the same concepts and sometimes the same thoughts, just reworded, are repeated over again. Of course he has a good message and of course he is selling books, in just the same way as the other self help gurus. So far, I am doing well with the 4 E's I have listened to, and can listen again at any time, unless something comes out totally new. If you want a broad summary and compilation of his works, go for the "New Earth" which touches on it all. Then if you wish some future enhancement, mind you with some repeating of the same material, then choose this or another of his works. He is a good author, I believe in most of the message, and this book is worth the credit. Thanks E.

A book that makes you think...not

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Power of Now?

The Power Of Now is toward the top of my list of books that make you think (or in this case, stop thinking). In short, it is somewhat Buddhist philosophy that goes like this: The past is gone and only exists in your memories. The future only exists in your head, as well. The only thing that is real is the present. And, if you would just stop thinking so much about the past and the future, you could enjoy the present. That's pretty much the book in just a few sentences.

Personally, I had a death of a family member as a young teenager that affected me for many, many years after it happened. I really think my life might have been different if someone had explained to me back then that I had the power to just stop thinking about it.

On the other hand, it is silly to think that the past just disappears. For example, a Southern California middle school teacher was recently fired for appearing in a pornographic movie. The film was produced well before she became a teacher. It is clear here that what she did in her past affected both her present and her future. Eckhart Tolle's advice in "The Power of Now" might make her present more enjoyable for her personally, but the bottom line is, nobody else is just going to magically forget about her past (career wise, anyway).

But kudos to Eckhart Tolle for not only writing a whole book explaining the benefits of "stopping to smell the roses," but doing so in a masterful way. Used in moderation, the information could benefit much of America, whose unchecked egos have caused much misery and pain.

For anyone interested in "The Power Of Now," I'm going to suggest the book, "The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself," by Michael A. Singer. It contains some of the same concepts, but, in my opinion, in a kinder and gentler way. Perhaps, it is a little less, "just stop thinking" than Eckhart Tolle, but still explains some of the dangers of the unchecked ego fairly well.

Great book, but hurt my ears

If you could sum up The Power of Now in three words, what would they be?

Uplifting, encouraging and enlightening.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eckhart Tolle?

At first I had an issue with the narration because the voice was very hypnotic. It took me a while to be able to listen and remain alert. A soothing voice is ok, but not when there's so much to take in. Honestly, I almost kept falling asleep. It really took a while to build up tolerance and be able to follow along while remaining alert. And this is not to say it was boring — not at all, just very, very soothing, but not in a good way for the purpose at hand.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Practically every sentence and every word.

Any additional comments?

While I appreciate the way the audiobook conveys the breaks and/or pauses between chapters or even within the chapters themselves (something I feel all audiobooks should have, by the way), the tone used to indicate these pauses is an extremely high pitched, echoing tone. It literally hurt my ears throughout the entire book. And it distracted a lot from whatever came after it (because it echoes in the background as the story continues). This is why the performance of this title gets only a one star. This is really a book best left to traditional reading and not listening to.

A true guide to inner peace

This audio book is truly a rare gem. Not only does Eckhart masterfully distill the ancient teachings and wisdom for achieving inner peace but explains its difficult concepts in a very clear and effective manner. A must read for those seeking for enlightenment.

A modern serving of Basic Sanity.

As a Buddhist, I find an amazing parallel between the teachings of Tolle and the basic sanity of Buddhism. Thanks to Tolle, I now understand why the glimpses into reality that I have experienced have always faded and not lead to lasting peace - my mind incorporated them into my 'story'.

Thanks to this reminder, I feel like I am embarking on a spiritual journey that has been sidelined for a very long time by my identification with my mind and my story as it is expressed through past and future. Although much of the wisdom expressed in this book has been expressed before, at least one new concept, that of the 'Pain Body', is both new (to me) and very useful.

This book is very inspiring. After years of confusion and procrastination, Tolle's 'Power of Now' has compelled me to begin my spiritual practice 'now'.
