If this had more stars I would rate it higher. Absolutely wonderful. When I received it I decided to listen to it in the car. There is a mixture of lightheartedness and seriousness which ensure that you remain alert to what is being said. As you all know Ekhart Tolle is the author of A New Earth and his message is simple and yet not easy. All we have is NOW. The past is history and the future is not here so we live in this moment. We try to remain open to this moment and to observe it without judgement. This is easier said than done. All the masters from all persuasions have told us that all we have is now but it is a difficult concept to absorb into our daily practice. Yes, I can acknowledge on an intellectual level that all I have is this moment but to keep that awareness with me all day on a conscious level is difficult. The CD's are wonderful to listen to in the car on a long journey, however to fully absorb the message, it may be necessary to listen quietly at home. The voice of Eckhart Tolle is gentle and for the most part quiet and so very soothing. I have been studying spirituality for a long time and I have rarely heard the message being delivered with such gentleness, humour and joy of living.

This is a joy to listen to. Eckhart certainly knows the essence of all the key spiritual messages that have been passed down over the centuries and puts them in his own non-dogmatic, modern, clear way. I have studied spiritual, religious and mystical writings for over twenty years - and this sums them all up.

Excellent. Buy, listen, re-listen. Eckhart Tolle expresses so clearly what many have tried and failed to communicate.

I like Tolle's powerful narrative skills. They are exciting and forcefully impressive. They are instructive and rewarding. I would recommend the product to anyone looking for the benefit it gives.

If you listen to this and you think it is boring,or you just don't get it you may want to put it away and bring it out again at a later date.I read "The power of now" 3 times before i was ready for this cd when the time is right you will enjoy it and know exactly what Eckhart is talking about.It has really helped me to be more and more present in the moment and less time spent in none stop chatter about the past and the future.I listened to the cd whilst driving my car and found it worked better than listening to it at home.

Eckhart Tolle is always saying the same thing and it’s always worth listening to but of the couple of dozen or so Eckhart talks I’ve listened to so far, this one is my favourite. The content is so clear and I find the energy mesmerizing. It feels like he was accessing something especially profound on this day, or it was accessing him. A real joy for many repeated hearings.

Like another reviewer I listened to the first of two CDs in the car. I've had them years, but this time I listened with a Douglas Harding headless sort of openness, and the talk continued to point to my spaciousness, my absence. Eckhart points to who you are in his own beautifully unique way. It's a definite five star because of the manner of his talk you can listen again and again, the present moment is always fresh and never repetitive.

Eckhart Tolle makes a lot sense through re-framing the wisdom from Buddhism and mystical Chrisitanity (in particular Meister Eckhart - from whom Tolle takes his name - & Joel Goldsmith) to suit the contemporary mind. However, if like me you might like to listen to this on your IPod, the copy I bought appears to be encrypted with the cover image, title and track names of "The Realization of Being". So when downloading it to your IPod, the tracks from one over-write the other, depending on which CD you download first.
