I have added Eckhart Tolle to the top of the list of my favorite Metaphysical writers. He has expressed in the simplest terms how to Be Here NOW, how to experience the flow of God energy. As a truth seeker for all of my adult life I have not found a writer who could offer a simple way to experience the Power of NOW. I want to be clear that I have not had the full experience, and I understand why and what I have to do, but I have had vivid dreams, and one revelation, which has made it clear to me how powerful his writing is for me. In my 20's I read J. Krishnamurti and couldn't understand one thing he said. But I was inextricably linked to him and his writings. I carried his books with me for years and I would open one up every 3 or 4 years and see if I could understand what he was saying....nope! I didn't realize that he was my introduction to Eastern Philosophy. It took me many years of life experience and pain to understand what JK meant by "Desire is the root of all suffering" when the opposite seemed more reasonable to me!
Throughout this book I hear the messages of JK expressed in much more understandable terms. I am enthralled to have ET bringing back all of my readings of yesteryears in a simplified way. It must be my time to evolve a bit more. I first heard ET on the Oprah Super Soul Sunday show. I was so taken by his message that on each commercial I went to Amazon and bought another one of his books! I bought them ALL and read them ALL in order of publication. The Power of Now may be more confusing for someone not familiar with metaphysics. If that is the case I would say A New Earth is easier to follow and understand. It was an Oprah choice and she did a 21 day workshop on air with him a couple of years ago which I missed.
I love this man and I love this book.
