Practicing the Power of Now
Eckhart Tolle is rapidly emerging as one of the world’s most inspiring spiritual teachers, sharing the enlightenment he himself experienced after a startling personal transformation. His views go beyond any particular religion, doctrine, or guru. This book extracts the essence from his teachings in The Power of Now, showing us how to free ourselves from enslavement to the mind. The aim is to be able to enter into and sustain an awakened state of consciousness throughout everyday life. Through meditations and simple techniques, Eckhart shows us how to quiet our thoughts, see the world in the present moment, and find a path to a life of grace, ease, and lightness.
If you liked the Power of Now, this book would be a good next step. Practising the techniques gives you the experience of being more present. Instead of just a nice idea, it becomes your reality for a short time. This may be all the impetus you need to persue it seriously.
