The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

封面
Hachette Livre Australia, 2005 - 235 頁
Eckhart Tolle is emerging as one of today's most inspiring teachers. In THE POWER OF NOW, a word-of-mouth bestselling phenomenon since its first publication, the author describes his transition from despair to self-realisation soon after his twenty-ninth birthday. Tolle took another ten years to understand this transformation, during which time he evolved a philosophy that has parallels in Buddhism, relaxation techniques and meditation theory but is also eminently practical. In THE POWER OF NOW he shows readers how to recognise themselves as the creators of their own pain, and how to have a pain-free existence by living fully in the present. Accessing the deepest self, the true self, can be learned, he says, by freeing ourselves from the conflicting, unreasonable demands of the mind and living 'present, fully and intensely, in the Now'. Endorsements: 'The author writes with compassion, not criticising, blaming or ridiculing the reader. He makes enlightenment seem attainable and necessary for both individual peace and the health of the planet.' - Foreword Magazine

Wow. This was a tough one to understand. Maybe when I'm more enlightened it will make more sense to me. The author reads the book. I wish he would've drunk more water... totally dry mouth! Very ... 閱讀評論全文

關於作者 (2005)

Spiritual author and teacher Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany on February 16, 1948. He lived in Spain and England before settling in Vancouver, Canada in 1995. He received his education at the Universities of London and Cambridge. Following several sustained periods of depression, at the age of 29 he experienced an enlightenment that dramatically changed the course of his life. His subsequent spiritual teachings have focused on awareness of the present moment, freedom from negativity, and the attainment of inner peace. He does not align himself with any specific religion or tradition. He has written numerous books including The Power of Now; A New Earth; Stillness Speaks; and Practicing the Power of Now. He is a public speaker who teaches and travels throughout the world. In January 2008, A New Earth was selected for Oprah Winfrey's book club.
