|Eckhart Tolle’s book “The Power of Now” is a best-seller, translated into 33 languages. It is by far one of the most simply profound and spiritually helpful books. The great thing about the book is that it’s only meant to be read a little at a time, giving all of us busy inspired bees plenty to think about throughout the day without monopolizing all of our busy bee buzzing time.
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.
