Publisher's Summary

This long-awaited second book by renowned spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle goes deeper into the teachings so eloquently and clearly expressed in his first book, The Power of Now.These short, clear entries are organized into ten topic clusters ranging from "Stillness and Silence" and "Beyond the Thinking Mind" to "Relationships" and "Suffering and the End of Suffering." Whether listened to individually or in topic clusters, these entries take on a rare transformative power.While its message is broad and profound, Stillness Speaks is also highly practical. Eckhart Tolle shows us how to be with another in a relationship that can contain and weather all things, how to sit with a dying person, where to find wisdom, how to free ourselves of guilt, and how to control our constant stream of thoughts. Underneath the words, and in the spaces between them, we find the power of stillness, a vibrantly alive state existing only in the present moment. Stillness Speaks draws upon the essence of all spiritual traditions, offering a message that is both ancient and contemporary, filled with timely and powerful wisdom.

The stillness speaks... literally

This book - I now realise - is why I joined audible. The coming together of Tolle's perfectly clear wisdom (the power of NOW), the miracle of mp3 and the pause button on my iPod to create a life-changing experience that I take everywhere with me at the moment.

The pace Tolle reads is perfect, especially precious being the long contemplative pauses he uses to allow profound things to settle and the ripples to spread outwards. He invites us to stop 'reading' regularly and take more time away from the book than with it - a strange invitation that makes perfect sense the longer you live with this teaching.

And that's why I'm in awe of this technology; a little solid state thing hanging round my neck; no moving parts and weighing almost nothing. Consuming almost no power; able to stop and let the learning take hold and restart at any time later - when the time is right.

Worth every penny of my entire year's audible subscription.

Excellent

Eckhart talks in such a way that I have been able to realize and finally experience the feelings of awakening that I've wanted for so long. He has a way with words that is clear, understandable and works.
