Description

Eckhart Tolle illuminates the fundamental facets of his teachings, drawing from all spiritual traditions, to provide inspiring and practical insights into living in the Now.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 11, 2003 – Some readers of this slim follow-up to the bestselling The Power of Now may be alarmed that the seemingly wise and gentle Tolle writes in the introduction that his new work "can be seen as a revival for the present age of the oldest form of recorded spiritual teachings: the sutras of ancient India." Tolle explains that the Vedas and Upanishads, as well as the words of the Buddha, the parables of Jesus and the wisdom of the Tao Te Ching can be thought of as sutras in the sense that they share a brevity that "does not engage the thinking mind more than is necessary." Like those great sacred works, Tolle continues, his writings come from inner stillness. "Unlike those ancient sutras, however, they don't belong to any one religion or spiritual tradition, but are immediately accessible to the whole of humanity." Repeating what has become a familiar if no less ominous note in contemporary spiritual life, he adds that this unprecedented accessibility is due to the urgent need for humanity to wake up if we are not to destroy ourselves. It is the stillness that is our common Being—which is the formless container for what is happening in the now—"that will save and transform the world." In the brief chapters that follow, Tolle describes stillness with eloquent economy. Beautiful stand-alone paragraphs offer insight into the defensive nature of the ego versus what he sees as our true being, the attentive, receptive mind behind thought, the spaciousness and peace that blossoms inside when we accept what is, including death. "Your unhappiness ultimately arises not from the circumstances of your life but from the conditioning of your mind." No one will doubt that Tolle has freed himself from nagging thoughts and fears. But the rest of us?

Customer Reviews

Listen and practice...this is a journey.

It amazes me how one man can have so much insight into the human condition. If you are looking for a quick fix, this is not it. There are no "quick fixes" for years upon years of caked on negitive thought patterns. However, there is hope! One has to be at a unique place life to fully understand this work. Perhaps even at a place when you are ready to admit that you are broken. We are all broken. After a couple of listens, I am asking myself "How did I ever drift this far away?" But that is really not the point. The point is that there is a way to live a better life, a life filled with more ease and a life less full of ourselves. There are no promises here. Problems will not go away, trials will always come as long as we are walking this earth. They are a necessary part of our growth. What you will learn is how to deal with these trails and recognize negative thoughts that arise from them. It requires an open heart and open mind. One must be be willing to let this soak into their inner being. These are not concepts, these are truths. I find this very compatable with my Christian faith, but this is applicable to anyone that is ready, regardless of their beliefs.

A worthy read

When you open you mind and heart to the ideas expressed in this well done book, you open your life to the power within. Through this internal strength, you realize how important it is to let go of negativity and self imposed suffering. I appreciate how this book expresses these healthy ideas.
