This book has changed my life along with Eckhart's other publications.

I was very skeptical at first, as I considered myself to be non religious and not spiritual and didn't think I could relate to this sort of stuff.

My initial 'though' could not have been more wrong. I hardly ever read books but could not put this one down. I read it at a time when I had recently moved to the other side of the world, then within a few days, I was let down badly by my girlfriend, resulting in a breakup and quit a new job in which I felt was not for me. Prior to this I suffered from ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome after an undiagnosed spinal cord injury.

After my resent disappointment I felt extremely lonely, depressed and a failure. A couple of friends had recommended the book and I went out and bought it. I read this book in less than 2 days.

The effect it had on me was overwhelming and life changing! I was able to move on from my "life story" with ease as I found presence and contentment with very few forms in my life. I realised that my life was not my thoughts and that I had been obsessed and locked in thinking for as long as I can remember, resulting in so much pain and suffering.

I have now been able to feel presence and live in happiness for the past 3 months. I no longer feel lonely, I have seen how my ego and my painbody has in the past has had such a detrimental effect on my life.

If you want to be liberaed from pain, suffering and any other kind of unhappiness then go and buy this book. Many of my friends have either borrowed my book or bought a copy and have have experienced similar liberation and freedom from their dysfunctional minds.

This book enabled me to find the off button for the thinking part of my mind. Without thinking about the past and future, there is no suffering and pain.

Thank you Eckhart.

This book is a great introduction to those seeking spiritual enlightment.
It teaches you how to live your life free of the ego, and free of past regrets and future expectations unrealised. If you live in the now and be truly present and then are able to firstly gain more from the opportunities that come your way and secondly enjoy every moment more free from over analysis. From someone who has been consumed by analysis by paralysis in my life, this really does help to recognise when it happens and to focus on what matters, the now. As Tolle, nothing happens in the mind, in the past or future, it always happens in the now. A truly groundbreaking book.

Eckhart writes in a very down to earth way that has a sound philosophical base. He is presenting the essential Buddhist concepts of sunnata (space consciousness) and mindfulness (sati) as the present-centered awareness that allows us to transcend object-consciousness and become the living reality of Buddha mind (bodhicitta). But the way he presents these often dry concepts is so engaging!
To read more about mindfulness and mindfulness meditation, I suggest you read:

i agree with all the reviewers. This book blows your mind without appearing to try to impress, lecture or preach at you.

I have read a number of other publications with the same core premise. I thought this particular one confused, repetitive, and patronising and I could not engage at all with the author. There are better books out there.
