“…a reminder to be truly present in our own lives and liberated from our past and future. It can transform your thinking. The result? More joy, right now.”
– Oprah Winfrey, in O: The Oprah Magazine
To make the journey into The Power of Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle offers simple language and a question and answer format to guide us. The words themselves are the signposts.
For many of us there are new discoveries to be made along the way: we are not our mind; we can find our way out of psychological pain; authentic human power is surrendering to the Now. We also find out that the body is actually one of the keys to entry into a state of inner peace, as are the silence and space all around us. Indeed, access is everywhere available. These access points, or portals, can all be used to bring us into the Now, the present moment, where problems do not exist. It is here we discover that we are already complete and perfect.
A word-of-mouth phenomenon since its first publication, The Power of Now is one of those rare books with the power to create an experience in readers – one that can radically change their lives for the better.
