'The Power of Now' has in a short time already proven to be one of the greatest spiritual books written in recent times. It contains a power that goes beyond words, and it can lead us to a much quieter place beyond our thoughts, a place where our thought-created problems dissolve, and we discover what it means to create a liberated life.
Throughout 'The Power of Now', there are specific practices and clear keys that show us how to discover for ourselves the "grace, ease and lightness" that come when we simply quiet our thoughts and see the world before us in the present moment.
'Practicing the Power of Now' is a carefully arranged series of excerpts from 'The Power of Now' that directly give us those exercises and keys. Read this book slowly, or even just open it at random, reflect on the words, reflect even on the space between the words and - maybe over time, maybe immediately – you'll discover something of life-changing significance. You'll find the power, the ability to change and elevate not only your life, but your world as well.
It is here, now, in this moment: the sacred presence of your Being. It is here, now, not in some distant future: a place within us that always is and ever will be beyond the turmoil of life, a world of calm beyond words, of joy that has no opposite.
About the Author:
Eckhart Tolle is widely recognized as one of the most original and inspiring spiritual teachers of our time. Eckhart is not aligned with any particular religion or tradition, but excludes none. At the core of his teachings lies the transformation of individual and collective human consciousness - a global spiritual awakening.
Eckhart was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge . At the age of twenty-nine, a profound spiritual transformation virtually dissolved his old identity and radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work with individuals and groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher.
Eckhart Tolle is the author of The Power of Now, a #1 New York Times Bestseller, which has been translated into 32 languages and become one of the most influential spiritual books of our time.
In his most recent book, A New Earth, he shows 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.
