"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"[Oprah] Winfrey calls the book 'a wake-up call for the entire planet, one reader at a time. It helps us to distance ourselves from our egos . . . and to open ourselves to a higher self. . . . It helps us to stop creating our own suffering and obsessing over the past and what the future might be, and to put ourselves in the now.'" —USA Today

The book takes time to read, because, you have to contemplate what you read, highlight it and read it again. I imagine reading this book or at least parts of it, over and over again. Enjoy.
What I most LOVED about A New Earth is how it made me feel. Joyful and calm. That and the keen insights on unclasping the ego's hold over oneself. The awareness you gain from this book on that front can set you free of suffering and inner conflict, even if it's a work in progress, and for that, I am MOST grateful to A New Earth.
The way to listen to this book is in small chunks. Maybe you listen for 5 minutes and then listen again to the same section. Maybe you spend a half hour listening and then take a few days to process it. You cannot go too slowly because each part is delicate and deep, and as much as we will undoubtedly use our brain to process it all, we need to allow our bodies to feel and to be with the concepts.
Read, listen, indulge and bask in this book. It can have the answers you've been seeking if you are patient and listening and truly hearing what Eckhart shares here. I'll be reading the physical copy next.
Maybe regretfully- the book's title doesn't convey how transformational a tool it can be for the individual person... It doesn't only talk about creating a new conscious society, but it mostly is a useful and eye opening book about waking up individually.
I wonder if it is at all possible to digest this book even with several reads... maybe even in one single lifetime...
I first read it more than 10 years ago, maybe even more, when i was deep into Eckhart and his teaching.
Then i moved on to other spiritual inspirations.. and felt that frankly, it's strange, but i don't want to go near Eckhart at all again, as his teaching just makes me "frustrated".... What can i say- it wasn't correct for me to listen to him for a while.
Now, i happened to return to his sphere of influence, and picking up this book again, i realize how deep, accurate and brilliant it is.
Yes. It may not be easy implementing what Eckhart talks about.
But if you are someone that feels strongly about spirituality, and even about liberation from suffering, this book has a dignified place in your library... even if you'll have to read it again and again over the course of many years, to realize it's transformational power.
Eckhart knows what he is talking about.
