Overview

With his first international bestseller, The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle introduced a simple and profound view of enlightenment, inviting seekers of every faith, age, and culture to enjoy the fullness of life through living in the present moment. Now this unique voice in contemporary spirituality explores our highest purpose in life and how meditation can help us attain it with The Realization of Being.

Words are useful signposts, Eckhart begins, but our main spiritual teacher is stillness. This powerful energy field is always available to us through meditation. In simple language, he explains how to listen with your entire body while working with the body, mind, and attention in order to merge with this moment. As we go beyond the need for thought, he teaches, we achieve the meditative state of no mind or presence that is effortless, joyful, and natural. Through this timeless path we merge with the universal purpose, and become a divine presence.

A revolution in human consciousness has already started, teaches Eckhart Tolle. We can advance this revolution now with the help of The Realization of Being.

Meet the Author

Spiritual author and teacher Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany on February 16, 1948. He lived in Spain and England before settling in Vancouver, Canada in 1995. He received his education at the Universities of London and Cambridge. Following several sustained periods of depression, at the age of 29 he experienced an enlightenment that dramatically changed the course of his life. His subsequent spiritual teachings have focused on awareness of the present moment, freedom from negativity, and the attainment of inner peace. He does not align himself with any specific religion or tradition. He has written numerous books including The Power of Now; A New Earth; Stillness Speaks; and Practicing the Power of Now. He is a public speaker who teaches and travels throughout the world. In January 2008, A New Earth was selected for Oprah Winfrey's book club.
