The Power of Now
The Power of Now is one of the most influential texts ever written. Eckhart Tolle is a brilliant spiritual teacher and this book breaks down his insights into the mind and his own sufferings of the mind.
The cornerstone of spirituality is learning to control the mind and at times it can feel nearly impossible. Suffering is a part of life and yet, it all stems from the mind and its tendency to directly identify with our thoughts.
Eckhart details how to disassociate yourself from your ego-mind and how to connect to the essence of yourself – what he calls presence. Once you learn how to live in presence, you are in “the now” and are largely free from suffering.
I personally love listening to Eckart, so I recommend both the book and the audiobook.
