2.0 out of 5 starsLow quality Pages and very poor Printing.
4 April 2018
Even after purchasing from an Amazon fulfilled seller which is GS RETAILER... The book seems to be a copy... Very low quality printing, low quality pages and even the cover pages are of poor quality... Ordered for my roommate's birthday... But very disappointed... :( Bharosa uth gya "amazon fulfilled" se bhi.
If you need to read one book in your entire life, it would be the "Power of Now". Though I have read several spiritual classics and seem to understand the teachings it convey, I realized that I did not gather the underlying message portrayed by those great spiritual texts. It is Eckhart's wisdom showed me what those spiritual texts are actually conveying.
The first radical concept, we live only in the Now, takes time to understand, intellectually, we may seem to understand but to put it in practice it is a different story. We constantly live in the past or future but never in the present. In fact we never really live in the present moment. Eckhart in a very crystal clear manner portrays how we live in a dysfunctional way and opens our eyes to the Present. In the present moment we find our salvation and not anywhere else. If we practice what is presented in the book, we will be giving a present to ourselves.
Do buy and read it. I have recommended this book to all my friends.
very good book for spiritual progress.. the book explains how we are the slave of our minds and are always thinking about the past or future which inturn causes us anxiety and fear, stress... the author explains how to except the now and live in the now !!!
Excellent book. Amongst the best I have read. Can transform the way you live...for the better. The lucidity and depth with which the book explains concepts is amazing. His key message is that Time and Mind are same. Mind forces us to think of past (with regret) and future (with anxiety). Instead live in the present moment, the NOW moment , to be in bliss and consciousness. This is the nutshell, but he explains many other concepts.
I very highly recommend this book to everyone. It’s amongst the best books out there.
This book change my Life...... to see this world in different way.... This book gives me inner peace . This book tells LIVE THE LIFE IN THE PRESENT MOVEMENT ... THERE IS NO PAST , NO FUTURE all are illusion of our mind and WE ARE NOT OUR MIND(here mind means ur thoughts and ur emotion ).... WE HAVE ONLY ONE OPTION THAT IS PRESENT MOVEMENT ... WE CAN NOT LIVE IN FUTURE AND WE CAN'T CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE PAST.....
It explains you everything. What is now? What is future? What is past? It is helpful in every step of your life and for all age groups It guide us to enjoy now and not to worry about future and past. It helps us to meditate. It tells us what meditation is. Must read.
The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment is a book by Eckhart Tolle. The book is intended to be a self-help guide for day-to-day living and stresses the importance of living in the present moment and avoiding thoughts of the past or future.
I have given 4 stars because of the belief that everything can be improved. The book gives a metaphysical and spiritual explanation to our insecurity and anxiety about the past and future. I have also read Dr. Albert Ellis ‘a guide to rational living’. Both supplement each other. One giving spiritual and metaphysical explanation and advice while the other a cognitive one. A must read for people with anxious and unstable personalities.
I read the whole book in 2 days and feeling so much energetic and whole world is seeming new to me. Really a best book for whom unable to quiet the mind. This book is all about living in present movement and freeing from all the thoughts which are causing future and past fantasies.
This book will make you enjoy the present now and that is all it matters.
