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.
I'm not one to get into the hype of self-help books, but this is such a great listen. Calming, insightful, everything you're looking for in a book of this nature. If you feel like you keep hitting a brick wall with work, relationships or any aspect of your live, spend the money and get this. Sanity doesn't have a price.
Tolle great as always, but a niggle about the format
This book has 10 chapters. The audiobook is divided into two parts, of four files each. Thus, for example, chapter six starts the fifth track. Lame.
It would be so much simpler and more convenient to have one track per chapter. Thus you could go directly to the chapter you want. A good thing when you have 8+ hours of audio. A little disappointed with this.
Tolle of course, is great to listen to--the man exudes serenity and sanity, and his writing is excellent.
This book holds the key to happiness, it changed my life.
