Summary

Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents listeners with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.
Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.
In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are, which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are, and learn to live and breathe freely.

Mind-blowing Stuff

I must be honest here, I have spent my life so far being a bit of a cynic about anything that isnt completely factual with the exception of emotions and creativity, and am as such a total atheist. But I'd been having a hard time and was informed by reliable sources (ie. Russell Brand...) that this book is pretty remarkable.

The opening lines of the book had my sighing and preparing myself to be utterly correct in my preconception that this would be a very hippie dippie book and would not on any level relate to me or my life, with its subject of the beauty of flowers. As beautiful as I agree flowers are I initially did not see how this was relevant.

Throughout the course of this book I had several moments of pure clarity and a genuine challenge to my previously held beliefs that I found utterly fascinating. I am, probably to my detriment, a very opinionated person and I really appreciate and enjoy anything that legitimately changes my mind.

This book changed my mind.

If you can get past the connected one-ness of the universe dialogue and see the truth that lies between the lines of what I initially thought to be meaningless. At least to me anyway.

And it genuinely helped. I'm not going to go into my personal issues in a book review, and everyone has their own intricately differing situations, but it was refreshing to see things from a new perspective and therapeutic to have the soothing voice of Eckhart reading his wisdom aloud, like my own personal therapist.

One of the best...

This is one of the best books I have ever read. If you want to make the most out of it, listen, pause and think. Maybe also grab a pen and some paper and jot down ideas. You won't regret it!

A Realized Being Shares In Person...a rare find.

Wow, much more value than I expected from the title. I stumbled on this book and am ecstatic that I did.

This book/audio should be experienced by everyone for one or more of the following three reasons:
1) If you are happily going about life, not on a spiritual quest, never had a mystical moment and believe that you are just like everyone else, then this book will give you insights on how to experience more life and help you answer many of your difficult questions that you seldom think about.

2) If you have had a mystical experience, remember it and want to get back to that "state" again, then this book shows you how to, why you should want to and what amazing things await you when you do.

3) If you are on a spiritual quest, stop here. You need not search further. Eckhart gives you your answers in clear English for the Western reader. This is an amazing find for you.

Now, the down side. You will be distracted by Eckhart's accent. After a while in the book I realized why (although he never really speaks much about himself). Realized beings in the "state" have a breathy, deliberate, considered and generally slow way of speaking. This can lull you to sleep, but listern to the words and you will be fine.

This is the real McCoy. He knows. Listen.

The best of the best

Sometimes a book comes along that takes all of the murky concepts that you are struggling with, shines a light on them, and makes them simple and powerful. This for me is that book. I drive to work and back each day, 1-hour each way. This book has become my constant commuting companion. I have listened to it over and over and over again. Each time I get something new from it even though I have heard it many times before. It doesn't matter if I start at the beginning or in some random place. New meaning and insight just keep coming through. I can see subtle changes in my life each day as I apply the wisdom. I have no doubt that I am changing the world! Thank you Ekhart Tolle.
