A contemporary spiritual master shows how living in the present leads to a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life 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. "

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique! Great techniques to change the way we think about the essence of life. Great book for people who are too busy in their daily ruts, to stop and think about whats important. Will change your perspective.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spiteful Maybe not an appropriate review title, but I have to say that I was taken aback by Eckhart Tolle's writing in this novel. Having already read and loved A New Earth, I though this book was written with bittern, jaded disappointment in the human society. I did not find much inspiration or value in this novel, which will come as surprise to almost every one, but the truth is I did not like it. However, there were some redeemable moments in the chapters. Some that I liked very much, but certainly not enough to redeem the book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely great This is a wonderful set of CD's that has a very calming effect on the listener. Now is important not what happened yesterday or what could happen tomorrow. We don't spend enough time in the Now and this set of CD's helps get you there

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Find the narrow gate that leads to life It was very important that this author mentioned how he set-up this book, otherwise, people would be reading it just on the surface (which included alot of religious/spiritual quotes that some people may not relate to) and not see the underlying meaning of what he is trying to convey. All the jargon like pain-bodies, mental noise, surrender, etc are used to illustrate complex ideas in a simplistic way. This book showed me a new way of thinking and also helped me deal with alot of unresolved emotional pain that I couldn't find a way to get out. I can go to sleep at night feeling peace because instead of dwelling on the past and worrying about what the future might bring, I am living in the "Now."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Cool! Very interesting. An open mind is necessary. I don't fully believe all of it but again it raises a lot of questions and gets you thinking. Great conversation piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Valuable Guide Eckhart Tolle weaves together a masterpiece for how we can all live in the now. If living mindfully in the present seems like an impossibility, this book will serve as a valuable guide. Written in everyday language this book is as practical as it is profound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never look back I wish I could put into words how I feel this book has changed my life, but I can't. Trust me when I say you should pick up this book today and read it. I wasn't able to put it down. The words written in this book really amazed me, words that I wasn't able to explain and words I thought only I knew of. Eckhart Tolle has changed my life. Since reading this book I have become a better person... or, I should say I am able to get to that better person easier. I actually have read this book, along with A New Earth over a couple times each. Whenever anyone is interested in these books, I immediately hand them over. If I can pass along Eckhart's teachings to anyone, I will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and Important This is an important book, and one that will change your life. Simple, truthful, wise, and patient. Required reading for the human race.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from worth a listen ... especially for Tolle's thoughts on the manifested/ unmanifested universe. But for a much clearer, and vastly more in depth, analysis I'd recommend the writings of Vernon Howard, especially his book The Mystic Path to Cosmic Power. When I first listened to the PON tapes, I was blown away. I thought Tolle had really discovered something. But when I started tapping into Vernon Howard, I realized that most of what's in the Power of Now is pretty much old news. (He says, a little facetiously.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective yet .... I found this book to be a greater clarification of spirituality but certain aspects left me puzzled. 1. His writtings try to weave together christian and buddhist ideologies, but buddhist's do not believe in God or the existence of a soul. 2. Does not explain the ramifications or consequences imposed onto the individual when past crimes are punished by society repeatedly. 3. Not as many different scenarios or practical examples to demonstrate how this methodology successfully show its effectiveness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book will change your life... If you buy only one book on how to have a happier life, this one should be it. It gives absolutely excellent insights into how to live in the present moment and live with constant joy in your life. This book can be an indispensable staple in making your dreams come true. It certainly changed my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transforming I was the stereo typical construction worker, full of attitude and the unhealthy lifestyle...although many changes occured in my life prior to reading this book, it was the next step for me and relayed the right message at the right time, I was searching and although I did not find in this book, it at least made clear what I was searching for and in that I realised the search will always be on....A good read...
Date published: 2001-05-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read A fabulous book to help me on the way, it has a simple, straight forward wording that really appealed to me. This was a tremendously moving book, I will read it frequently to help me on my way...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Power of NOW There is not much to say then: "Go get this book"! It is right on the top of my list of spiritual literature. Scary clear, precise and to the point, and a great instant GUIDE on your journey!

About the Book

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.

About the Author

World-renowned spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle conveys simple wisdom that transcends any particular religion, doctrine, or guru. His #1 NYT bestselling book is a modern classic in the field of personal growth and spirituality; Oprah Winfrey credits The Power of Now with helping her to get through September 11, 2001" and she featured it on her December 2002 "Oprah's Favorite Things" show. A native of Germany, Eckhart Tolle attended the University of London, and upon graduation went onto become a research scholar and supervisor at Cambridge University. At 29, a profound spiritual awakening virtually dissolved his personal identity and sparked a radical change in the course of his life. It marked the beginning of an intense inward journey and he devoted the next decade to understanding, deepening, and integrating that transformation. For the past ten years, he has acted as a counselor and spiritual guide, facilitating sold-out groups in Europe and North America. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. "
