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

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 )<br /><br />'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 )<br /><br />'Reading this book has taught me to witness my actions from several viewpoints. I have read it many times over and I get more from it each time I dip in. I try to read a few pages each morning and carry those words with me throughout the day. I've recommended it to lots of friends, who have also found it helpful.' (Belinda Carlisle ) --various

There's no waffle in these books.
Basically get the habit of success thinking instilled in you mind by disciplining yourself to think that way. Initially you have to force yourself to think success thoughts rather than letting your thinking run on autopilot, being influenced by the outside world. The more you force yourself to think success, the more your mind will do it.
Thinking habits apparently take 21 days to form so as they say, your result will reflect your efforts.
Your subconscious take notice of whatever you think and feel.
This includes beliefs that humanity has reached the pinnacle of its development, that we are completely separate from each other, from nature and the cosmos, and that the physical world is all there is. Based on his own personal transformation, Eckhart brilliantly shows us how to rise above our conscious thoughts and overcome our fears by ending our delusion of time to exist and gain great pleasure from living in the NOW.
By watching our thoughts and putting them into the right context, we can remove the insane burden of worrying about a hundred things we will or may have to do in the future, and focus our attention on the one thing that we can do NOW.
When we acknowledge and accept the facts and stop reacting to our thoughts, we create the space for transformation to happen. This also applies to giving others the space to express themselves and relinquishing negativity, so that we can feel true compassion and contribute towards bringing about a better world.
It is the quality of our consciousness at this moment that is the main determinant of what kind of future we will experience, so to surrender is the most important thing we can do to bring about positive change. When we surrender to what IS and so become fully present, the past ceases to have any power and we do not need it anymore - presence is the key to the power of NOW.

His writing style is unbearable. For example, "It is a misperception of your essential reality that is beyond birth and death, and is due to the limitations of your mind, which, having lost touch with Being creates the body as evidence of its illusory belief in separation and to justify its state of fear." JFC.
I finally put this book away for good after reading half of it. I really don't understand the book's popularity. It's like everybody is nodding, smiling, and singing Tolle's praises, when the reality is that nobody gets it because there is nothing to "get." But nobody wants to say it.
This book has what you are looking for.
While reading You will know about your mind and why there is depression, anxiety, stress, misery, suffering in your life and how you can resolve all this and be at peace with yourself.
It taught me how to disconnect from the insanity of the mind. I had spent my life reading thousands of books trying to "figure it out" to make my way to a place of happiness and functionality, what Tolle explains that trying to solve the problems of thought from the level of thought is an impossibility. When we let go of mind-consciousness we do not become a meditative vegetable, instead, we gain access to the consciousness of our whole body and a more advanced awareness. I know it sounds weird, but it works. When I can stay present everything I do becomes more effective, and my social skills are way better now then they have ever been.
I don't mean to say that this is the be-all and end-all to human growth, but it has in fact saved my life, so I figured it at least deserved a good review. I am no longer helpless in the face of crushing memories and emotions. Thank you, Mr. Tolle.
Books us in question and answer form. After reading it you will be a clear person. I bought it just for 180rs.
Paper quality average but not misprints that is a good thing.
Bharosa uth gya "amazon fulfilled" se bhi.
If you are not that religious type of person you need to be aware of that from time to time the word "God" appears, which kinda bothered me somehow as I only had the "learned in school" point of view of Jesus etc. Nevertheless it certainly does give you a new perspective which I never thought of. However, it did bother me a bit reading it, that's the reason for giving 4 stars.
I'm German and I didn't have any problems reading it! It is fluently written, you need, however, time and a lot of focus not only to read but to understand what is being sad.
I definately would recommand this book to people who are interested in other perspectives and are not satisfied with the modern lifestyle and looking for something more. You need to be open-minded than that this book is an eye-opener!
However, the work isn't being done with only reading it ... guess it's only the start!
Side note: I tried to return it but Amazon is charging $5.99 to return it (shipping), the book costs $9.49. My refund total is about $3 and some change. Is it even worth the trouble of packing it up and going to the post office to drop it off?
Hmmm...maybe I'll just leave it on my bookshelf. The cover color is nice. It matches my decor.
The first radical concept, we live only in the Now, takes time to understand, intellectually, we may seem to understand but to put it in practice it is a different story. We constantly live in the past or future but never in the present. In fact we never really live in the present moment. Eckhart in a very crystal clear manner portrays how we live in a dysfunctional way and opens our eyes to the Present. In the present moment we find our salvation and not anywhere else. If we practice what is presented in the book, we will be giving a present to ourselves.
Do buy and read it. I have recommended this book to all my friends.
