The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment, is a book that can act very much like a mirror to one’s soul. It guides the reader to a higher altitude of thinking through self-reflection and the lessons they can draw from living in the moment.
ckhart Tolle ends excessive and compulsive thinking by expressing a simple yet sophisticated truth: a person can only experience the present. Worrying about the past or the future is a useless exercise that distracts people from living their lives.
Everyday stress and worry can be significantly reduced as a result of this realization. The reader learns to view the world as a child again. Since beauty and wonder are ever-present, all individuals need to do is quit distracting their minds and live in the moment.
Eckhart Tolle provides not just a philosophical and spiritual context for readers to duel upon, but also practical methods for relaxing the mind through meditation. The author himself wants the reader to study this book not only with their minds, but also with their essence of being and their feelings.
This book is ideal for readers who are interested in spiritual teachings and mysticism. However, it is discouraging for beginners as the ideas are presented like a dialog which aids in guiding the reader.
Considered a classic by many, this book has helped many people to revolutionize their way of thinking and has introduced their minds, but more importantly their souls, to new, interesting concepts.
I trust that this book will find its way to those who are ready for such radical inner transformation and so act as a catalyst for it. I also hope that it will reach many others who will find its content worthy of consideration, although they may not be ready to fully live or practice it.
