This manual-style book instantly dives into Eckhart Tolle's principles of "living in the moment," which could be a jarring experience for readers who haven't read his preceding book, The Power of Now. For the initiated, though, this makes an excellent companion guide--rich in exercises and meditations to help readers get out of their minds so they can live more peacefully in their bodies. Sometimes it's hard to fathom what on earth Tolle is talking about: "To regain awareness of Being and to abide in that state of 'feeling-realization' is enlightenment." Be patient. All concepts will be revealed (or at least more carefully explained). Ultimately, Tolle leads readers into a new form of thinking (or actually not thinking) that erases the consuming habits of waiting, worrying, and being in fear. The first step is ending the "delusion of time." He asks, "Are you always trying to get somewhere other than where you are? ... Is most of your doing just a means to an end?" If so, Tolle has a book full of advice for you. As simplistic as this may sound, Tolle's work has spiritual merit and depth, especially for frantic Westerners who find their lives diminished by packed schedules and busy-ness. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Two weeks later...I find peace and joy in the NOW and the relationship is over. Plus I have clarity in other life situation areas. During the two-week suffering-before-letting-go healing process I reached out to a Centers for Spiritual Living practitioner who teaches The Power of Now and has read Tolle's original Power of Now text 32 times. He helped by asking questions I was unable to ask myself.) I now make the Now the priority of my life. How wonderful to have a direct path to serenity.
For those who adhere to conservative Christian perspective, one can substitute " seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness" phrase for the word NOW.
I truly believe that this guy has reached enlightenment and wrote this book from and enlightened state. Many of the things he says are so profound that I just re-read them again and again in utter fascination. He points out such simple truths that so many of us spend a lifetime overlooking. I find that when I'm not reading this, I'm thinking about it and ways to practice it in my life. Everything he said rang so true. I really can't find fault or criticism with anything he claims to be true, because deep down, I know it's true. I had just never heard anyone articulate it before. This guy has the answers to life. Now I just need to work on turning believing into experiencing. I'm very new to these Buddhist-like teachings, but Mr. Tolle has really opened my eyes to the power of it. The power of Now, that is.
Also, if you're a Christian, as I am, and seem a bit skeptical by this type of teaching, I can assure you that nothing he says directly contradicts Christianity. Some terms he is reluctant to use, such as God, because of misuses of that term or idea, so he steps around that, so as not to offend certain readers. But I don't have a problem with that at all. Despite his vagueness in describing the Source of eternal love and peace and joy out there that we are all connected with, as a Christian it is easy for me to decide what he is talking about, and all his teachings have an overall message of love and peace and surrender; very complimentary to Christian ideals. If anything, this book strengthened my faith and has given me a better understanding of meditative prayer.
