It taught me how to disconnect from the insanity of the mind. I had spent my life reading thousands of books trying to "figure it out" to make my way to a place of happiness and functionality, what Tolle explains that trying to solve the problems of thought from the level of thought is an impossibility. When we let go of mind-consciousness we do not become a meditative vegetable, instead, we gain access to the consciousness of our whole body and a more advanced awareness. I know it sounds weird, but it works. When I can stay present everything I do becomes more effective, and my social skills are way better now then they have ever been.
I don't mean to say that this is the be-all and end-all to human growth, but it has in fact saved my life, so I figured it at least deserved a good review. I am no longer helpless in the face of crushing memories and emotions. Thank you, Mr. Tolle.
I love Eckhart and his teachings on the "Power of Now". He really shows us how to slow down from our busy hectic lives and appreciate being in the moment. His teaching also help keep me "out of my own head" , I have the tendency to worry about future events, and rehearse past events.
I decided to experiment with a singing bowl to see if it would help get me "into the now" before doing mindfulness meditation, to help stop my mind from drifting to the future and past. This singing bowl is a real gem! The sound is beautiful, simply strike the bowl before starting meditation and hold your concentration on the sound until it fades into silence. It really helps you relax into the meditation and get into the now... Also, if you catch yourself getting distracted you can tap the bowl again, and follow the sound to pull your attention back into the now.
Great combo for study and practical use.
It's important to note that this book is not a textbook nor a strategy guide. It addresses the deeper underlying assumptions and beliefs that we hold, helping to open the reader's eyes to a different way of thinking and appreciating the moments in which we find ourselves. That said, there were many passages that resonated deeply with me, but I was left wanting more to put the insights into practice. This is where it's useful to check out Tolle's "A New Earth" for more practicable insights.
Overall, I'd call this book an entryway into a new way of thinking. Tolle pulls back the curtain on an understanding that lies just beyond where we normally live, and it's up to the reader to step through the doorway and explore that space for him or herself, and discovering the many other resources to help one find their place in all of it.
