The 10th anniversary edition of A New Earth with a new preface by Eckhart Tolle.
With his bestselling spiritual guide The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle inspired millions of readers to discover the freedom and joy of a life lived “in the now.” In A New Earth, Tolle expands on these powerful ideas to show how transcending our ego-based state of consciousness is not only essential to personal happiness, but also the key to ending conflict and suffering throughout the world. Tolle describes how our attachment to the ego creates the dysfunction that leads to anger, jealousy, and unhappiness, and shows readers how to awaken to a new state of consciousness and follow the path to a truly fulfilling existence.
Illuminating, enlightening, and uplifting, A New Earth is a profoundly spiritual manifesto for a better way of life—and for building a better world.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Oprah is a big fan of spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle’s bestseller The Power of Now, a guide to living in the present moment rather than the past or future. Tolle’s 2005 follow-up builds on that concept by focusing on how self-criticism and anxiety can interfere with mindfulness. The main premise of A New Earth is that creating a sense of separation from ourselves and our negative thoughts allows us to overcome insecurities. Tolle explores that concept from many interesting new angles in different chapters—the result is a soothing read that left us feeling reenergized.
According to Tolle, who assumes the role of narrator as well, humans are on the verge of creating a new world by a personal transformation that shifts our attention away from our ever-expanding egos. This idea is well realized through Tolle's remarkably well-paced narration. Naturally, the author understands his material so thoroughly that he is able to convey it in an enjoyable manner, but Tolle's gentle tone and dialect begs his audience's attention simply through its straightforward approach. Something about this reading just seems profoundly important, whether one agrees with the material or not, and listeners' attention is sure to be captured within seconds of listening to Tolle's take on the universe in which we live. Originally released in 2005, both book and audiobook were reissued when Oprah Winfrey chose the title for her book club this year. A Penguin paperback.
A New Earth
Absolutely Life changing book, have read it 3 times now, listened to podcasts with Oprah, i re-read parts of it at least once a week. Made me view life, existence and the world in a completely different way, could not live without it now. Groundbreaking, can't find a way of describing the impact Eckhart has made in my life and family, convinced my husband to read it, first time ever I manage! And he feels likewise. A must read for anyone with the desire to live authentically in this challenging world, and contribute to the awakening of the human race.
A New Earth
How can one write a review of a book such as this, which is as profound a teaching of the spirit in true understanding. I am in awe of what I have read. I can only pray that I grow from this book.
Essential for those ready to move beyond unconscious living
Tolle has such a wonderful way of expressing depth of human evolving and process necessary to live and feel a conscous life. Many are/may not be ready to awaken themselves and in so doing.....will defend their limited and ego filled existence.
If you identify yourself as a "christian", then your dogmatic and myopic view of the world and life will obscure the teachings found here, because if you're christian, then everyone who isn't....is wrong or bad and that is already inherantly small thinking and self limiting to expansion on any level. Just another role that is filled with ego and a sleepwalking life.
Thanks to this book millions have become 'aware" of the ego and limited "thinking" lives and have been able to live in abundance.....which is a natural state free from ego or possession. Inner peace trumps all when you realize what is truly important to you. What a great book and greater message for life.
