Summary of Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment (Unabridged)
This is a summary of Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment. Much more than simple principles and platitudes, the book takes listeners on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light. In the first chapter, Tolle introduces listeners to enlightenment and its natural enemy, the mind. He awakens listeners to their role as a creator of pain and shows them how to have a pain-free identity by living fully in the present. The journey is thrilling, and along the way, the author shows how to connect to the indestructible essence of our being, "the eternal, ever-present one life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death."
