it was amazing

This is a follow up to Tolle's The Power of Now. I read this one first, and got a lot more out of it. This is a book about how what we tell ourselves about our world (experiences, relationships, events) becomes our world, for good or bad. It also gives practical advice (if you're willing to hang in there) about how to transform your thinking so as to improve your life and truly live in the Now. Tolle pulls from every religious system out there, and introduces new (to me) perspectives on biblical passages and this may put off some readers. However I found that opening my mind to the possibilities transformed my thinking. It seemed that every time I grew weary of it and was on the verge of putting it down, I would come across a gem that resonated so significantly that it kept me reading. While it takes some patience to slog through some of it, there are gems of insight in the book that have positively impacted my daily life. I'm about to read it again for the third time.
