New Earth, A
10 Year Anniversary Edition
With his bestselling spiritual guide The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle inspired millions of readers to discover the freedom and joy of a life lived “in the now.” In A New Earth, Tolle expands on these powerful ideas to show how transcending our ego-based state of consciousness is not only essential to personal happiness, but also the key to ending conflict and suffering throughout the world. Tolle describes how our attachment to the ego creates the dysfunction that leads to anger, jealousy, and unhappiness, and shows readers how to awaken to a new state of consciousness and follow the path to a truly fulfilling existence.
The Power of Now was a question-and-answer handbook. A New Earth has been written as a traditional narrative, offering anecdotes and philosophies in a way that is accessible to all. Illuminating, enlightening, and uplifting, A New Earth is a profoundly spiritual manifesto for a better way of life—and for building a better world.
In the Preface to this new edition, Eckhart reports that this book has been translated into 44 languages, and read by countless people (6 million copies sold) and that the webinar he and Oprah Winfrey made about the ideas in this book was viewed 35 million times. So, he poses the question, “Ten years later – where are we?” His lengthy answer points to many hopeful signs, that we might miss if we only rely on the daily news to assess the state of the world. Though things might seem grim at first glance, changes for the better are happening all over the place.
