The Power of Now


The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle


By now, you have probably heard of Eckhart Tolle, the little elfin man who did an 8-part webcast with Oprah Winfrey that drew as many as 11 million people, as he led a discussion on the chapters in his book A New Earth. As groundbreaking as that webcast was, I happen to feel that his first bestseller, The Power of Now, was a more important book. Tolle was the first of the New Age authors to devote an entire book to the concept of living in the Now, to releasing the prison of the past and the trap of the future from our consciousness. Tolle explains how living in the now, this present moment, is a life transforming act that opens the door for far greater joy and peace. He traces his experience as a homeless man, lost in misery, to a man who lives each moment in a state of equilibrium and harmony. It’s an incredibly thought provoking book and one which will open your eyes to a different way of living.
