Frequently bought together
"[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.'"
"I would do anything to be anywhere in the vicinity of Eckhart Tolle."
"A gentle journey, one that could take you to a spectacular and very special place of new awareness and deeper understanding."
—Neale Donald Walsh, author of Conversations with God
"One of the best books to come along in years. Every sentence rings with truth and power—the power to bring you into the gap, the space between our thoughts, where we find, as Eckhart so beautifully puts it, deep serenity, stillness, and a sacred Presence."
—Deepak Chopra, author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
About the Author
Eckhart Tolle is widely recognized as one of the most inspiring and visionary spiritual teachers in the world today. With his international bestsellers, The Power of Now and A New Earth—translated into 52 languages—he has introduced millions to the joy and freedom of living life in the present moment. His teachings focus on the significance and power of Presence, the awakened state of consciousness, which transcends ego and discursive thinking. Eckhart sees this awakening as the essential next step in human evolution. The New York Times has described him as “the most popular spiritual author in the United States”, and in 2011, Watkins Review named him “the most spiritually influential person in the world”.

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.

The essence of achieving success in life is to form the habit of thinking in a successful way rather than letting events happening around you and other people's opinions direct your life.
Discipline yourself to think only good about you and your life. Don't let envy and jelousy of other people creep into your mind. Let other folk do what they want to do and focus your mind on what you want to do.
If you fancy reading about spiritualty, read the Conversations With God series by Neale Donald Walsch.
The books are basically what Walsch imagines his god would say in response to his questions.
An overview of the series -
You can do what ever you like with your life.
The YOU you are is the YOU you create with your own thoughts.
God does not care what you do and does not judge or punish you.
Love yourself as God's highest form of creation and make the best of yout life.
Everyone, without exception, goes to heaven.
Also, have a look at Outwitting The Devil by Napoleon Hill.
Do I honestly feel Tolles 'New Earth' is something likely to come to widespread fruition in the near future. The short answer would be no. Nonetheless this does not take away from the many lessons of practicality which can be utilised by the average individual reader to improve their lives both on a physical and spiritual level.
At the price it is sold for I consider it an extremely wise investment for those seeking further fundamental answers regarding our purpose for being, across all age groups.
