The Power of Now

If you spent your whole life reading books on spirituality, meditation, or trying to “figure it out”, I heartily recommend The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.

The author, as he stated himself, does not reveal anything we do not already know; he rather gives us the key to open the door.

By reading the book, you feel a tremendous amount of relief and positive energy, and you realize that it is possible to change what makes you unhappy. But it doesn’t happen in an instant, as we usually expect; it is an everyday effort.

The book is not to be read in one breath; we should come back to it regularly and “leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind.” Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle uses simple language and an easy question and answer format to guide us.

Learn to free yourself from pain and delusion; and you will see the fearful self is just a fiction of the mind. Additional recommended titles by Tolle listed below:

The Power of Now

Using a question-and-answer format, Eckhart seeks to show that people carry within them a “seed of enlightenment” that can help them find their true wealth–the “radiant joy of Being and the…peace that comes with it.” The best-selling book about connecting with the essence of our Being. This title is also available on Hoopla as an eBook, and on Libby/Overdrive as eAudio and eBook.

Stillness Speaks

In short concise pieces that can be read individually or as a whole, the author addresses the spiritual needs of people in the twenty-first century by showing them how to obtain inner peace.
