Download "The One Thing," an exclusive essay by Eckhart Tolle. [pdf] --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Publishers Weekly
According to Tolle, who assumes the role of narrator as well, humans are on the verge of creating a new world by a personal transformation that shifts our attention away from our ever-expanding egos. This idea is well realized through Tolle's remarkably well-paced narration. Naturally, the author understands his material so thoroughly that he is able to convey it in an enjoyable manner, but Tolle's gentle tone and dialect begs his audience's attention simply through its straightforward approach. Something about this reading just seems profoundly important, whether one agrees with the material or not, and listeners' attention is sure to be captured within seconds of listening to Tolle's take on the universe in which we live. Originally released in 2005, both book and audiobook were reissued when Oprah Winfrey chose the title for her book club this year. A Penguin paperback. (Feb.)

This is a way to help you unlearn all that you think you are and need to be. It will take practice to learn to be present in each moment...we aren't use to doing that. We pride ourselves on multi-tasking! It's so simple, and yet so difficult, especially when everyone around you is asleep to this way of being. One by one hopefully we can awaken.
I tried to listen in each week with Oprah and Eckhart. It helped to clarify a few things, but I still have questions. I am also re-reading The Power of Now, which is similar in many ways. I enjoy the interpretations of Bible passages and parables in a way that I was never made aware of til now. It really makes sense!
Morpheus' line from the Matrix movie: "You were born into a prison....one that you cannot smell, nor see, nor taste, nor touch. A prison for your mind." This prison, like the matrix, is a dream like state. A state of unawareness in which your thoughts that have been running around in your head (conditioned thought) hides the true reality of life from you like a veil over your eyes. Once this veil is lifted so much of the world and the Universe flows in. The ego being like a dam wall which held back the waters of truth, compassion (including self compassion) and beauty will fall if one takes to heart the pointers in "A New Earth."
Like Neo, from the Matrix movie, you may reject or rather the ego may reject these ideas as the Self (your spirit) begins to put some space...some distance between your thoughts and your spirit. When you open yourself to these spiritual truths that will ring true in your mind and heart you'll know it is right. Not because of a convincing argument, but a deeper truth that lies beyond thought...in our essence, our nature.
There is more space and peace within me each day in which I need much less and wish to give much more.
* Neo means "change"...a fitting name for the character.
** You are not your thoughts because you think them.....
Enlightenment, consciousness, awakening...call it what you will... is the only thing that is going to save the human race from annihilating itself. We are way past attempting to sort out the destructive situation we have created with the level of consciousness most people are still at. If we are to really move beyond our present mess we need a new level of consciousness, and each and everyone of us is responsible for our own awakening.
Tolle explains perfectly how to wake up and become conscious....to live NOW in this red hot minute...which is the only time there is. And why we we need to do this.
I would love to be able to say read this book and you will understand...but i know from my own experience that there needs to be a level of understanding to really get what Tolle is saying.
Even now i'm continually going back and reading sections of the book over and over again... as some things are so easy to forget. Not entirely sure i need to be doing this but i so love reading Tolles words. For some reason when i read the book i feel a great deal of hope for the future of our planet. If everyone 'got' this book humanity would very quickly evolve to create a whole New Earth.
