The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment – Eckhart Tolle
Before reading this book I had some preconceptions about the message of this book. What could be so hard about living in the present? The famous “Carpe Diem” we all learn in school – LEARN and not LIVE and FEEL – because this makes all the difference. We’ve got to be awake, to be conscious of everything around us, to clearly see, hear, smell, feel. To live in the present makes us happy and full of life.
This is a book you have to read with your soul and senses, not with your mind. It’s difficult for me to describe this book in words. The mood and the feelings you have when reading it, that changes you, not the actual words.
“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, but only saps today of its strength.” — A.J. Cronin
“It’s no wonder that The Power of Nowhas sold over 2 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 30 foreign languages. Much more than simple principles and platitudes, the book takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light.
In the first chapter, Tolle introduces readers to enlightenment and its natural enemy, the mind. He awakens readers to their role as a creator of pain and shows them how to have a pain-free identity by living fully in the present. The journey is thrilling, and along the way, the author shows how to connect 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.”
Featuring a new preface by the author, this paperback shows that only after regaining awareness of Being, liberated from Mind and intensely in the Now, is there Enlightenment.” (Amazon Description)
