More About the Author

Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany. When he was 29, a profound spiritual transformation virtually dissolved his old identity and radically changed the course of his life. He is now a counsellor and spiritual teacher, and the author of The Power of Now, Practising the Power of Now and Stillness Speaks. He lives in Vancouver.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Ekhart Tolle's message is simple: living in the now is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment. And while this message may not seem stunningly original or fresh, Tolle's clear writing, supportive voice and enthusiasm make this an excellent manual for anyone who's ever wondered what exactly "living in the now" means. Foremost, Tolle is a world-class teacher, able to explain complicated concepts in concrete language. More importantly, within a chapter of reading this book, readers are already holding the world in a different container--more conscious of how thoughts and emotions get in the way of their ability to live in genuine peace and happiness.

Tolle packs a lot of information and inspirational ideas into The Power of Now. (Topics include the source of Chi, enlightened relationships, creative use of the mind, impermanence and the cycle of life.) Thankfully, he's added markers that symbolise "break time". This is when readers should close the book and mull over what they just read. As a result, The Power of Now reads like the highly acclaimed A Course in Miracles--a spiritual guidebook that has the potential to inspire just as many study groups and change just as many lives for the better. --Gail Hudson

Review

THE POWER OF NOW can transform your thinking. The result? More joy, right now. (Oprah Winfrey)

Pointing to the portals of the eternal Present, this practical mystic's modern gospel offers transcendent truths that set us free. (Dan Millman)

'In the self-help heaven that is the US, Eckhart Tolle is fast becoming the next Deepak Chopra. His book, THE POWER OF NOW, is the bible du jour - a must-read for anyone looking for a modern take on spirituality . . . Essential reading for anyone who might be feeling weighed down by the past or fearful of the future'. (Red magazine)

This book is generating quite a buzz of excitement. It is quite simply one of the clearest and most accessible texts on becoming more present that we have seen. (Kindred Spirit)

After reading a selection of reviews I thought I would write my own. I completely understand the reason for the negative reviews but this book was not written for those people at this time. The point of the book is about becoming more aware and waking up in order to see things for what they truly are. For us that is rising above our mental filters, views and belief systems which are often distorted and destructive. Quite often it takes major life events for us to question our personal mental structures. This is exactly what happened to me and now I am so glad it did.

So in my opinion, this book is most likely to help you if:
1) You are having (major) challenges in life and your "normal" ways of coping are not working.
2) You are wondering what life is all about and are not finding any truly fulfilling answers.
3) And most importantly you are OPEN to looking at life in different ways.

This book is unlikely to help you if:
1) You do not want / are not ready for a shift in consciousness.
2) You are not open and prepared to question your own belief systems and views on life.
3) You focus more on the way things are written rather than look for the underlying message.

Look around, life needs us to wake up and this book is one of many tools available to help us do that!

Peace ;-D

I read this book and learned a lot about myself and life. I was shocked to read the pages and find myself saying.....I do this, I did that, that is how I feel. The book really got to the root of the problems in my life (my mind) and explained to me how I can correct these problems. Once I began using the advice in the book I noticed positive changes in my life and I started to feel alive, fresh and content. I have not felt this way since I was very young. This book has really started off a life transformation within me.

If I could sum up this book in a few words, it would be like this........The book is like finding a map to peace and contentment inside you, that you never knew that was there.

Thank you Eckhart Tolle.

Format: Paperback
Just bought this book on Audio and listened to it whilst going for walks in the woods every day. I found it truly beautiful. No matter what you beliefs or how far along you are in your spiritual development this book can teach you things that will change your life. Most of us are aware of the importance of being "present", however after these teachings you may realise that it is the key to true happiness. This guidance (along with meditation) changed my life, relationships and energy. I recommend the audio especially if you can find the time to listen whist amongst nature. Eckharts chilled out voice really resonates and you will remember the truth you've always know deep down. Thank you for this book.

I am in the process of splitting up with my wife of 12 years. This is has been the single biggest challenge in my life to date. The confrontation, the bitterness of recent years and the short term uncertainty in terms of how things are going to play out can take a heavy toll. If you search the web, you will find lots of tips about how to survive divorce. I have chosen for counselling, fitness and some spirituality.
I am glad that I have chosen for spirituality, that's not to say that I am about to grow a beard, put on a pair of sandals and a horsehair shirt, more of a case of trying to discover where perhaps I have gone wrong in the recent past and I how I might change things so that I might live a happier life in the future.
Eckhart Tolle has certainly helped me to create more focus, I have come to realise how much time I have spent worrying about things, rather than doing things, enjoying life and being me.
I have had the book a few weeks and I can say that it has made a difference. I can detach myself from mulling over the past and my hopes for a better future. Now I am able to concentrate on what I need to do now to reconcile the past and/or what I need to now to create a better future.
I found the first few pages difficult, fundamentally, that was down to my state of mind. I was not open to absorb what I was reading.
I am not sure what finally pushed me to persevere, I am glad I did. It is not the kind of book that you can read in a day, you need to read it, reflect on it and try it. I will be honest some of the book is very abstract, if you can get beyond that and try some of the exercises, you will feel a benefit.
Oprah Winfrey has had umpteen copies and she raves about it on You Tube, Eckhart Tolle can also be found there. Maybe try before you buy, you will need to a copy of the book to really understand the Power Of Now.

I ordered this on Thursday morning and it arrived Friday morning. I am only on page 30 and I am consciously making effort to follow it's teachings, since I started everone even strangers have been saying how different I am and how happy I am. I am already feeling more "high on life" as you would say, and generally more happy with life after a year of extreme depression. I am also less effected by negative energies and events when I used to have an awful temper even 7 days ago, but since I started reading this I have felt nothing but peace,love and happiness.

The teachings seemed a little difficult at first. But just open up to up to the moment and you will find the joy you seek.

Remember guys whenever you finish a book pass it on, leave it on a bench or anywhere public, give it to charity.
Pay it forward and you will be rewarded.
