This book changed mine

Most people, especially those that love to listen, will eventually find a book that changes their life. This book changed mine. I found it many years ago by seeing Oprah rave about it on her show. I picked it up and listen to it cover to cover many times. I found so many beneficial thought processes (and no thought processes) within its pages.

couldn't listen to the reader

I couldn't get past the first chapter. I don't know if it's a computer generated voice reading this thing or what, but I cannot listen to him.

I had a hard time believing it myself

Yes, with all the hate and strife that religion is causing us, it is difficult to believe that all the world's religions contain the same message of love. I had a hard time believing it myself, but it is the truth. What the author has done is he has collected the esoteric teachings and put them in words which the layman could understand, so instead of reading the ancient Hindu and Buddhist texts which are rife with symbolism, you can listen to this book where all the symbols are deciphered.

This book is the one true spiritual teaching

I have concluded from connecting the ideas in this book to those from a variety of other books, and from my personal experiences, that what the author is speaking of is certainly true. Many reviewers claim Eckhart Tolle is a thief and a fraud because he keeps repeating the same idea over again and because there is nothing in this book that can't be found anywhere else. There is indeed nothing new here, but he openly admits it in the book. He says that this book is the one true spiritual teaching which can be found in all the world's religions.

Some of the things the author talked rung true

I would like to say that this book is not for everyone. When I first started listening to it, some of the things the author talked about rung true with me because of things that had happened to me in my life, while other things I looked at with extreme skepticism and ridicule to the point where I discarded these teachings as nonsense. If you have never studied anything spiritual, and have never had any first had experiences with such issues, then you will have a hard time understanding what the author is talking about.

I would recommend buying the audio

Firstly, I would like to say that if you were to purchase The Power of Now, I would recommend buying the audio, and not the book. It is a lot easier to understand if you hear the author talk about it, rather than if you try to read it and to make sense of it, even though the audio and the book are of the same content.

Expresses that ruminating needlessly

The power of now expresses that ruminating needlessly about your past or worrying about your future wastes spiritual and psychological energy...it wastes your life. The author Eckhart Tolle genuinely lives the power of now, which greatly increases the credibility of the book. If you want to understand how to reduce pain and suffering in your life, this is a great book.

Awakening your life's purpose

This book changed my whole view of the world for the better. This book along with, "Awakening your life's purpose" great listens that is the truth for everyone. If this book doesn't trigger a huge epiphany for you, then you might not be looking into yourself deeply enough.

narrator needs to slow down

While the main book "The Power if now" is excellent this summary is hard to listen to. The narrator belts along at a blistering pace with no modulation. Cant listen to it.
