The Power Of Now – A Guide To Spiritual Enlightenment

Author : Eckhart Tolle

Genre : Philosophy, Spirituality

I confess. I kept moving from one activity to another to ‘fill’ time. When it was not high intensity work, it would be adventure sports to give an adrenaline rush. Or reading or driving or something else to keep the mind busy. The stillness of doing nothing (or trying to relish the moment) was just not me.

Our Mind is a greatest tool if properly used. But most of use don’t consciously use it. we are so identified with illusions and identities conceived y the mind that we have lost touch with our true inner being.

As I grew older, I started craving for a little more peace, a bit more of ‘no-mind’ time. Call it spirituality or whatever, but this is when we can hopefully “be one with our true self, which lies behind our physical body, shifting emotions and chattering minds.” The Power Of Now has been a great companion in this journey. Eckhart should know. Suffering from depression in childhood, he had a spiritual transformation when he was 29. And has been teaching spirituality since then. New York Times has dubbed Eckhart Tolle as “the most popular spiritual author in the United States”, and the Watkins Review also listed him as “the most spiritually influential person in the world”.
