From the Publisher
In The Power of Now he shows readers how to recognize themselves as the creators of their own pain, and how to have a pain-free existence by living fully in the present. Accessing the deepest self, the true self, can be learned, he says, by freeing ourselves from the conflicting, unreasonable demands of the mind and living "present, fully and intensely, in the Now."
A guidebook for readers looking to overcome emotional distraction and become fully engaged in the moments of their life. This spiritual journey will take readers to the Now: the place "where problems do not exist."One of the hardest tasks on a spiritual journey is letting go of ingrained thought processes, beliefs, opinions, and obsessions in order to plunge directly into the reality of the moment. And yet Eckhart Tolle believes this is the key to transformation. THE POWER OF NOW is a direct, simple, and highly readable explication of this powerful principle. Written in a Socratic question-and-answer form, Tolle describes the process of letting go of our ego-identified selves, our "pain bodies," and embracing the present moment. He outlines the pitfalls that sabotage our attempts to change our lives, and gently leads the reader to discover the incorruptible joy that resides within all of us. While Tolle's approach is certainly not new--it revisits the basic tenets of Buddhism and several mystical schools--its fresh and non-dogmatic presentation gives new life to a worthwhile message.
Customer Reviews of The Power of Now
Just starting to read it4/4/2013
Looks good -- am excited to get into the book.
Every single word that I read was overwhelmingly true. I had amazing realizations throughout the entire book. It is very powerful but easy to read and follow. It has changed my life. Some may be skeptical: How can one book have such an impact? Read it. That's all I can say. I love it and highly recommend it to everyone.
This book changed my life. I fired my therapist and started living and enjoying my life, plain and simple. You will find an inner joy and peace after reading this book that you never thought was attainable. You will truly find this to be a "working" text in which you will refer to frequently and often to comeback and remember that "only now exists".
