The Power of Now: A Guide To Spiritual Enlightenment

by Eckhart Tolle Author

In this widely read book, author and spiritual guide Eckhart Tolle takes the reader on a journey through their own minds and bodies towards enlightenment and a greater sense of self-understanding. With more than 2 million copies sold since its initial publication, this book has transformed the lives of countless individuals, and it can transform yours as well. Tolle's central hypothesis revolves around the notion that enlightenment is the mind's natural enemy, and so the task of achieving enlightenment is made more difficult by our own intellect. In order to overcome this resistance, Tolle suggests that we live fully in the present, escaping the pain that comes from being perpetually future-oriented. Through this focus on the present, we can overcome our resistance to enlightenment and connect to a static sense of Being that is outside of linear time and beyond the various material forms of this world. For those with an interest in spiritual practice, this book can help you develop your own approach and inspire you to a greater experience of well-being.
