book review: the power of now
posted: December 11, 2009
Having not read a spiritual book before, I was somewhat reluctant when I received this book in the post. The Power of NOW by Eckhart Tolle challenged me a lot, not just wording wise, but mentally and emotionally and I ended the book being more aware and responsible of my actions and reactions. I like to think of his books as ‘spiritual psychology’, it gets you to think beyond yourself into the greater Being of life that is, as he leads you through a discussion of the condition and behaviour of the human mind. The small chapter breaks are much needed and I found it was a good practice to only read small portions at a time, to mentally digest the teachings. Everyone will take to this book differently and have different levels of ‘awakening’. As rare or deep as they may be for you, the moment it happens it truly feel as if a veil has been lifted from your eyes.
Provoking and profound, it is worth a read. Life in the present moment is forever eternal.
