"[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.
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.
His treatise on EGO became tiresome until I realized how important the information had become that my own ego was fighting me for dominance while beneath my Mind, my Spirit was struggling upward for dominance. I let go, and the rest of the book flowed.
Tolle certainly takes you inside. Periodically he will suggest a method for Feeling, for practicing standing in the Present Moment ... the NOW of life ... Eternity in the presence of the creating Source.
Throughout the book I worked ... some days struggling to release all thoughts cramming their way through my brain ... a busy mind that never ceases. I was successful without realizing it until several days after completing the book these stupid thoughts begin again. My countering is to pick up his book each day ... randomly open to a section and read to the end of the chapter keeping me in the Zone of Presence. I also take his advice and when I find Ego slashing and dashing to my forebrain, I stop. Right then. And breathe. One ... two ... three breaths, listening to the in and out. Feeling the moment on the out breath when everything stops. Centering on that moment, my Mind stops, the brain relaxes. Stupid thoughts vanish. I return to the Present Moment .... a space, personally. I never choose to leave.
As Tolle says, "A new species is arising on the planet. It is arising now, and you are it!"
