The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

There is a meeting fee of $1.

To make the journey into the Now we will need to leave
our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. From the very
first page of this extraordinary book, we move rapidly into a significantly
higher altitude where we breathe a lighter air. We become connected to the
indestructible essence of our Being, “The eternal, ever present One Life beyond
the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.”

Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle uses simple language and an
easy question and answer format to guide us. A word of mouth phenomenon since
its first publication, The Power of Now is one of those rare books with
the power to create an experience in readers, one that can radically change
their lives for the better.  – Back Cover

 

Much more than simple principles and platitudes, The Power of Now takes readers on an
inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the
ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light.
In the first chapter, Tolle introduces readers to enlightenment and its natural
enemy, the mind. He awakens readers to their role as a creator of pain and
shows them how to have a pain-free identity by living fully in the present. The
journey is thrilling, and along the way, the author shows how to connect to the
indestructible essence of our Being, "the eternal, ever-present One Life
beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death." Only
after regaining awareness of Being, liberated from Mind and intensely in the
Now, is there Enlightenment. – Barnes & Noble

 

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 symbolize "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. - Amazon

    I am so sorry that I won't be able to come tonight. I have looked forward to this for a long time, but I am so sick today and I better stay home or I will get others sick and I don't want to do that.
