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.
Every word, sentence, and paragraph is applicable in some way to my life. The simplicity is so complicated I can see how difficult it may be for people to accept the now an know that you are in the now. Only the mind is in the past and future.
The Calm Everyone Needs
Between the meditative quality of Eckhart Tolle's voice, and the truth to the words it was a great calming for me. Anyone who gets bogged down in every day life will be greatly relieved when reminded that all the things we stress about are really rather unimportant. Sometimes it takes an outside voice to help you remember. About the audio quality: I almost did not purchase this audiobook due to the complaints about the audio quality. I found it to be absolutly fine for in the car or walking with standard earbuds. The one time I used pro studio headphones I did notice a little reverb, certainly nothing worth passing up this wonderful book for.
The Right Book at the Right Time
This book was recommended to me while going through a divorce...and the lessons I drew from it were of immense help in recovering from that situation. I recommend it to anyone going through adverse personal circumstances. Good work, Eckhart! You get used to his voice after a while and it's well worth the ride.
