As with the Power of Now, I was sorry that it finished. Yet another powerful Tolle offering. He is truly an amazing teacher. This book and the Power of Now have made a big difference in my life. Everything he says is applicable right now. I will be listening to this again each year. I will be listening to all his offerings. They are all different (and humorous too) but they all have a core message. I would highly recommend this.

No frills. No ego. This is the book. A must read.

It is difficult to distill this treasure offered by Tolle in a review. I hope I do not do it a disservice. Suffice to say I will be listening to this again each year and purchasing the text too. One can tell almost immediately that the author Eckhart Tolle has profound insights into true spiritual Liberation. In fact one could safely say he is most likely permanently dwelling in this "unmanifested" state and is doing his best to convey this with love, clarity, and humility. He succeeded. I recognise (as Tolle said we all will) that we already possess this knowledge, that we already know these truths. We just have to go into ourselves though living fully in the present moment. It sounds simple because it is. This is the torch. We just have to follow his advice. I have been watching Tolle speaking online since the COVID 19 pandemic hit, so I had already been practising his advice in my life before reading The Power of Now. Since doing so I have found a complete change from my once intense anxiety to a much happier, peaceful, accepting, and calmer self and I intend to continue on doing so until maybe I don't need to ask the question at the very end of the book. It is true that sometimes difficult life situations can be a gift to discovering what we already possess. Coming from a Buddhist background I can see many parallels. Throughout the book, Tolle briefly and skillfully mentions various spiritual teachers who all point the way to the same truth. This book does not bog down the listener in flowery language or waste a moment getting into illustrating and exploring why we are as we are, and how we can liberate ourselves from our egoic mind which keeps us trapped in suffering and delusion, that keeps us from our true "Being". Being fully present every moment will bring us home. The power of Now is an instruction to bringing us into the "unmanifested", to our real "Being" . Some call this state the "Divine" , or "God". Tolle does this in such a powerful way chapter by chapter. I did not expect this to be as important as it is. There are things that I need to think about fully, that I don't quite grasp as yet, and I would imagine that is because words are not really adequate. It is more experiential. When Tolle spoke the last sentence, I wanted to start listening to the whole text again. I did not want it to finish. If we were all fully living in the now, every moment, the world would be the "unmanifested" and something to behold. I love you all. I would strongly recommend this wonderful book. TYR

A must read for anyone who wishes to understand the true account on how US foreign policy and the US National Security State have shaped our world. Jam packed with well researched information and geniously put together, Max Blumenthal is an amazing journalist and writer. I can hardly wait to read his future works.
