If someone asked, how do I "do" presence, this is where I would send them. That said, I started on "New Earth" gosh, almost ten years ago, and this is more to the point. However, it lacks the larger world view of how things are changing in the world around us.(less)

Eckhart Tolle is a master. "The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral, which always is as it is. There is the situation or the fact, and here are my thoughts about it. Instead of making up stories, stay with the facts. For example, "I am ruined" is a story. It limits you and prevents you from taking effective action. "I have 50 cents left in my bank accou ...more

Eckhart Tolle, publishing phenomenon, celebrity favourite and the most popular spiritual author in the United States, releases this, his eighth book which is essentially a collection of some of the most helpful passages from his 2005 bestseller A New Earth. This is the type of book that you return to when you need something to inspire, uplift and centre yourself. What I particularly enjoyed was that the quotes and passages are all so deep and much lengthier than those from other similar books.

I consider myself an atheist but I can absolutely relate to everything Tolle says in this book. I have also read his book A New Earth. I needed a refresher. A genius writer, honest, straightforward and from the heart. I will read this again and again when I need reminding that there is a way for all of us to evolve into being better human beings. Thank you Elkhart Tolle.
Love this author.

This is a fantastic companion to his book "A New Earth" which I have read several times.

For those who have started their spiritual journey this is highly recommended.

I bought this book because I really enjoyed Elkhart Tolle's book A New Earth. I read that a number of years ago when it was so popular. It was a hard read in some chapters. I had to keep rereading over and over to get what he was saying. That being said, I enjoyed his book so much I read it again and then took a 10 week class to study it more deeply with the chapters I struggled with. The group was lead by a psychologist in a small group of about ten women. We were going to do a little on each c ...more

A continuation of healing and understanding from Eckhart Tolle for those who have read "The Power of Now" and "A New Earth". He gives some of his most powerful quotes on each page that can be read and re-read to emphasize the powerful messages he spoke of in his series of books. ...more

re-reading this book again. i need to make my own condensed version that is pocket-side and can carry around with me because i need to reminded to breathe....sometimes that is all we need to do...just breathe.

Great book. With these books you want to read slow and let the wisdom sink in. I borrowed this from the library and will definitely add it to my own library.

Eckhart Tolle is one of those authors that I simply resonate with. I enjoyed this practical guide for his previous book 'A New Earth'. Appealingly aesthetic and artfully done.

Some have mentioned his books all contain the same message, but I seem to gain new insights in each.

An excellent book for tasting bits, day by day. I did it seaside. Couldn't get a better calm spirit than with the combination of his lovely words and the slow sound of the waves in the Caribbean. Vancouver is the richer for his presence. ...more

Spot on easy read. However, not even close to the master Nisargadatta Maharaj, I would spend more time on that or the actual “A New Earth”

"The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it." *

At the moment, this quote resonates with me the most. It sings out loud. It's not only positive thinking for me but proper, real, actual thinking about situations and life. I know it's cliche, but be your own cheerleader and always believe in you. Who else is going to do that apart from you? For you? After all, "acknowledging the good that is already in your life is the foundation of all abundance" and I'd lik

Full of flowery language and convoluted phrases that attempt to trick you into believing that the so-called teachings expounded are much "deeper" than they actually are. I read this concurrently with another (but nowhere as pretentious) title, called "Life's Little Instruction Book". Read that one instead. ...more

Little snippets of gold. Just read one paragraph at a time and let it marinate all day. Good stuff.

This book of quotations from Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth (2005) is really designed for those already familiar with the author’s work. In his introduction, he recommends reading no more than one chapter at a time, at most, stopping to re-read whatever resonates and allowing the words to sink in. The book could also be used bibliomantically, selecting and reading a page at random, rather than to learn something new ‘but to go deeper’ and ‘awaken out of the stream of incessant and compulsive thinki ...more

It all depends on how you read it and whether you are familiar with his teachings or not.
If you read it quickly without putting any thought to it, it will all sounds too vauge and senseless and you will reach a point where you want to scream at him and say " look at this world ! this is the reality! "

however, if you read it while being fully "conscious" you might feel a bit enlightened and at peace although for me, I still have trouble comprehending some concepts. and I also felt like it didn'

The book really doesnt have a start or an end so any page can be picked and read. I have not read 'A New Earth' yet but I loved this book right from its packaging, it has a golden cover and a very good feel. The author explains the difference between consciousness, awareness and the gap between the two asking the readers to look internally and sense it. Basically he dissects the layers of existence to help the reader find himself. I had to read some parts multiple times to understand it thorough ...more
Great summary type version of "A New Earth". Contains many excellent pointers that have been condensed into the work and placed in a pleasing-to-look-at volume. I actually prefer this book over 'A New Earth', since it contains many practical pointers, and less of the verbose theory, which is normally forgotten after one finishes the book. Overall, very nice, and can aid in one's meditation practices. ...more

A distillation of his popular "A New Earth..."

Good stuff. He so reminds me of Jiddu Krishnamurti.

Killer line for me at the end of the book, "Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment."

BAM!... here and now, here and now.

it makes you think even more. or make you rethink about what you've done before you read this book.

there are two different things between fact and story. a situation is a fact and an emotion is a story. do you want to know why? read it.

If you like Eckhart Tolle and A New Earth, then you will probably want this book. He takes the best thoughts from New Earth and puts them together in a useful way. I find an ah-ha on nearly every page. It's one I keep next to the couch for a quick pick-me-up. ...more
