Publisher's Summary

Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents listeners with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.

In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are, which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are, and learn to live and breathe freely.

A great follow up

I read the power of now initially, then read this shortly after, and the two go great together. many very eye opening revelations about consciousness.

A lifetime learning! Excellent book

This has been a life changing experience. The book really gets to deep conversations describing where is the key that opens the meaning of your existence and how to enjoy today and be happy and move away from our own personal enemy- ourselves. Totally recommend!

Peace in consciousness

A New Earth changed my perspective on life. I had already been meditating regularly, trying to find purpose in “my” life and career. I knew it was important to be present in order to find satisfaction, but I didn’t understand the meaning of it or its vast connection to the universe. Highly recommend this book.

Not power of now good but good all the same

Where I found the power of now foundational and eye opening, I found this offering less powerful but still very profound. Maybe it's because the power of now gave me such insight that this book felt a little revision like or simplified in comparison. Some great insights all the same. Be, here, now, and put your ego away. Sounds fairly simple yet so challenging... I'm working on it ✌️

Life Changing Book

I read this book at least twice a month. Its a real life game changer. Pretty deep but right on the mark for changing how to look at life as a whole.

The best self help book for me so far.

I struggled to understand some meanings and concepts but this book has untangled so many lines that I couldn't figure out with help of the other books. Just finished listenning ,want to repeat it and most likely get a hard copy to read it and take some notes. Unvaluable gift to muself that I would love to suggest to others.

Vital Secular Spiritual Book

Tolle really hits the nail on the head in this book. His message has evolved perfectly from The Power of Now. The last chapter gave me some great practical advice to take with me on my journey to stay in the present moment. Highly recommended this book for all readers.

A Realized Being Shares In Person...a rare find.

Wow, much more value than I expected from the title. I stumbled on this book and am ecstatic that I did.

This book/audio should be experienced by everyone for one or more of the following three reasons:
1) If you are happily going about life, not on a spiritual quest, never had a mystical moment and believe that you are just like everyone else, then this book will give you insights on how to experience more life and help you answer many of your difficult questions that you seldom think about.

2) If you have had a mystical experience, remember it and want to get back to that "state" again, then this book shows you how to, why you should want to and what amazing things await you when you do.

3) If you are on a spiritual quest, stop here. You need not search further. Eckhart gives you your answers in clear English for the Western reader. This is an amazing find for you.

Now, the down side. You will be distracted by Eckhart's accent. After a while in the book I realized why (although he never really speaks much about himself). Realized beings in the "state" have a breathy, deliberate, considered and generally slow way of speaking. This can lull you to sleep, but listern to the words and you will be fine.

This is the real McCoy. He knows. Listen.

A life-changing book

I'm a successful over-educated cynic.

And this book changed my whole outlook on everything and made me a much happier person.....and I was happy to begin with!

Unless you are at a certain stage of life/education/maturity - you will not "get" this book. Once you are ready for this book, however; it will astound you and open your eyes to a way of looking at the world and existence that you never suspected.

The performance of the reader is just fine. It is not obtrusive and seems to be less "important" than the message that is being delivered. In my whole life, this is the ONLY book I have now read to/listened to more than once.

I did not expect this.

If I could give this book 10 stars, I would.

The best of the best

Sometimes a book comes along that takes all of the murky concepts that you are struggling with, shines a light on them, and makes them simple and powerful. This for me is that book. I drive to work and back each day, 1-hour each way. This book has become my constant commuting companion. I have listened to it over and over and over again. Each time I get something new from it even though I have heard it many times before. It doesn't matter if I start at the beginning or in some random place. New meaning and insight just keep coming through. I can see subtle changes in my life each day as I apply the wisdom. I have no doubt that I am changing the world! Thank you Ekhart Tolle.

Listening continually, always gleaning more...

A spiritual book for those not into organized religion. This book changed me after one listen. It reveals how most suffering and stress come from within. The mind is a tool to be used for in-the-moment problems, but otherwise the mind takes a person out of the here-and-now with habitual thinking about past and future speculations. I bought this and listen to it over and over to help deepen the effect. After this book, I realized all my "problems" are as illusory as a mirage.

Must-read

This book should be read, taught and applied in schools, homes and all of our minds. Be ready to be shaken up into your old patterns and have some deep reflections about your own life.
