The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle - Book Review


Do you want to delve into a deeper dimension of life and experience your whole Self? Then The Power of Now, A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment is for you. I think you'll find, as I did, that this book comes into our lives at exactly the time we need it and are ready.

The information contained for experiencing the present moment of being is wide-ranging, so I thought for this review I'd tell you about my favorite and most moving chapter located about in the center of the book, which is Chapter 6, The Inner Body. In total there are 10 chapters.

I would not have suspected that delving into the feelings coursing through my physical body would get me to enlightenment, as I was taught to reign in the bodily feelings in my religious upbringing. But it is that very experience of feeling the life below the outer shell of skin of our body in the way its flow energizes us, that takes us away from preoccupation and attachment to negative thoughts running a race through our mind.

Eckhart Tolle explains how we can be centered in the "now" of each moment by keeping awareness of the splendid enlivening feelings of our body in existence. Yes, the body will one day die but while we are in it we have the opportunity to realize we are also in a vast energy body.

And while conscious of the energy and endless vastness we forget about the repetitive problems that take up our mind and time. Tuning in with this energy at each moment gives us the power to solve our problems in a new fast way, and in a positive light. In fact, it is this awareness of the Light that we are, felt as energy that is the experience of enlightenment.

For the spiritual seeker I can't recommend this book enough; I've only shared a small part with you, the book is the study of a lifetime. I think you'll enjoy all of Eckhart Tolle's writings.

Details: 224 pages; paperback; New World Library (September 29, 2004); 8.5 by 5.5 inches; ISBN-10: 1577314808; ISBN-13: 978-1577314806
