For Eckhart Tolle and the millions whose lives he's touched, words that are spoken from a state of presence can carry seekers into that same state, the basis for all true spiritual teachings. Beyond the information that is being conveyed, something deeper happens. For the listener, a field of alert stillness arises where before there was mental noise, signaling the entry t ...more

Truly spot-on.

How many people spend every moment of their life fully present to the moment? It seems like it should be a simple task and yet humans, especially today, are so focused on what comes next and how to get there that the "now" moments come and go without ever being missed, until one reaches a point in the path when they look back and realize that those moments are gone forever. They can't ever be made up or replaced. These are the concepts that Tolle explores in "The Power of Now."

This is a short au

Hard to follow, wordy and conversational lecture, mildly entertaining, not terribly helpful to me, personally. Tolle's European accent and hypnotic timbre lends an air of intelligence and well being but seriously...get to the point! LIVE IN THE NOW! Quiet your mind. Meditation does this as well. According to Tolle, if one doesn't get his ideas, the problem lies within them. Self-serving? I think "the Emperor's New Clothes" are nudity.

His ideas on gratitude and acceptance, even in the face of ill

Truly an amazing audiobook. I listened to this informal talk given by Eckhart and was struck dumb by his way with words, ideas and his presence. I was at peace during this talk in a way that was much more zen that I am usually capable of being! I'm about to dl everything the library has and go on a Tolle marathon. If you're like me, and constantly trying to find a way to be better, more at peace, more calm, more kind- then get this audio. Fantastic.

Sample quote: “That sense of self that is based on thought includes even emotions. … When they become a self, an identity, a ‘me,’ that’s where delusion starts and that’s where life becomes very problematic because that ‘me’ that is created by thought, that sense of self … never feels complete, never feels at ease for very long.”

This is the most accessible Eckhart Tolle work I've encountered so far. There are several laugh-out-loud moments in this short and sweet (2 hr., 16 min.) lecture about finding peace by living in the present moment. A great introduction for folks new to his simple, yet profound message.

I wish there was a 2.5 starts. My issue with this book was it was a lot of repeating what was in "The Power of Now". While there was a lot of good reminding and examples, it again, was too repetitive for me. Also , unrelated but, I listened to it on audiobook, and I couldn't stand Eckhart's Tolle's laughter..there was something deeply annoying about it.

A great lecture reminding us to stay in the present moment and let go of our egos.

Whew! I find Tolle difficult to follow. I thought that an audiobook would be easier, but not so much. I know that there is a lot of wisdom there, but I really have to focus intently on what he's saying to get any benefit from his wisdom. And, it is a little distracting that his laugh makes him sound like a creepy sex maniac...

This is more of a freestyle lecture. I don't know how I came across it. I think it was referenced in an article by Adam Yauch. It's about living in the now and not in the past or the future. The same thing a million books are about.
