Overview

"This book, of course, uses words which in the act of reading become thoughts in your mind. But those are not ordinary thoughts - repetitive, noisy, self-serving, clamoring for attention.... The thoughts within this book don't say, 'Look at me,' but 'Look beyond me.' Because the thoughts came out of stillness, they have power - the power to take you back into the same stillness from which they arose. That stillness is also inner peace, and that stillness and peace is the essence of your Being. It is the stillness that will save and transform the world." -- From the Introduction by Eckhart Tolle.....Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany, where he spent the first thirteen years of his life. After graduating from the University of London, he was a research scholar and supervisor at Cambridge University. When he was twenty-nine, a profound spiritual transformation virtually dissolved his old identity and radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating, and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Eckhart is not aligned with any particular religion or tradition. In his teaching, he conveys a simple yet profound message with the timeless and uncomplicated clarity of the ancient spiritual masters: there is a way out of suffering and into peace. Eckhart is currently traveling extensively, taking his teachings and his presence throughout the world. He has lived in Vancouver, Canada, since 1996.

What a great read this perceivably powerless short read is. Not only impacting on the mind, body and spirit, but an easy read for all. With that said, it might be recommended to read one of Tolle's other works before reading this, as possibly the meaning will be glossed over to those unfamiliar with spirituality. Thank you Eckhart Tolle!

After slowly, considerately reading The Power Of Now, I picked up Stillness Speaks expecting to read it the same way gleaning wisdom and knowledge. I soon put it down somewhat disappointed. A year or so later, my friend gave it to me on CD. Suddenly, I understood the simplicity of this book's transformative properties. This is not a book to glean knowledge. It is a window to finding essence, peace and the center of being. I hope the reader that rates this one star picks up the CD. Although, if he or she lives in my area, he or she will have to special order it, as I purchase every available copy I find to give away to friends.

In this very small book are a variety of short phrases, grouped according to various categories. You read the phrases and just let them sink in, see how they feel, listen for what they say. I loved reading this book more than a couple of times and got a lot out of it on every occasion. I noticed that on some days, certain sections were more inviting and more informative than on other days. Quite an interesting and impressive book!

...and that's if you never heard of him. I love Eckhart because of books like this that bring you one step closer to who you are truly meant to be. I'd also like to thank whoever recommended "When God Stopped Keeping Score," another great book, which takes an eye opening look at forgiveness. Given the chance, it will change your life.

I learned of Eckhart Tolle through my Pastor. He was reading and teaching from The Power of Now. It was different and one must have an Open mind to grasp what is being said. One must chew, swallow, digest and ponder on the words. Put the book down and come back later. I have been more interested in Who I Am for years, so Tolle's books has been a great resource for me. I could not find the answers in others, but some people were great sign post for me. Excellent read and I highly recommend this book to those in search of "self-realization." Also, that there is no other existence but THE NOW!

True to his word, Eckhart Tolle doesn't give us much 'mind stuff' in his follow-up to The Power of Now. This book will be disappointing to people who want the entertainment of reading about enlightenment, but aren't ready to experience it. If you've embraced The Power of Now, however, this book will awaken you gently and surely to Being...which will just as gently and surely enlighten your life. A wonderful and beautiful treasure of a book!
