Overview

A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose by Eckhart Tolle

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.

When I first heard about A New Earth I was very skeptical the book wasn't going to say anything I hadn't already heard and as a Christian I was afraid it would mess with my faith in God. That is not what happened. The book is very intense but the webcast Oprah and Eckhart did helped me get a better grasp of what he was trying to say. You do have to be ready for it and by that I mean already seeking your purpose and why you are really here or it won't make much sense to you. My advice is to read The Power of Now first and then you will get a better grasp on A New Earth. Having discovered that the chatter that was going on in my head was not normal and the fact that I have been walking around unconscious most of my life, became my awakening moment and the chatter stopped! I now recognize the ego and the pain body for what they are not only in me but those still in unconsciousness. You really can't fight against what is. I am now conscious and have more inner peace. Things that I use to let bother me no longer do. I've had to make some adjustments in my life, let some situations and people go but it was for my greater good. It's amazing what you find out when you really pay attention.

I have read this book about six times all the way through. Everytime I read it, I get something new out of it. It is appropriate for the rapid advancements in enlightenment. I recommend this for anyone who already has a solid base in non-conforming spiritual awareness. Awesome, awesome, book!

I think that Eckhart Tolle's book, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose, is one of the most significant and important, that I have ever read. Friends that I have shared a copy with, have agreed. It contains the answer for my personal search to overcome a lifelong struggle to overcome anxiety and depression, as well as to be more centered and spiritual. My work as a Therapist, as well as my personal challenges with my ego, has been greatly enlightened by Tolle's clear explanation. Understanding the role and the working of the ego, has allowed me to begin to comprehend the inner presence. The explanation of the collective ego, clearly points to importance of consciousness to end the conflicts and suffering that is plague our world.

Eckhart Tolle has created a masterpiece! We as the people of this planet need to fine tune ourselvess and become happier, calmer, and more caring. We need to forgive and understand ourselves, as well as our fellow man. This book in its 300 pages will help you to fine tune who you truly are deep inside. It can help you become the you, you used to be. Remember when you were so much happier..this book can help you become that person again. It will help you realize what has been holding you back from enjoying life and will help you lift that weight from you. I am recommending this book to all of my friends. Everyone I know would love to be happier. Whether it is a death, an emotional blow, an injury etc. that has changed you, you will awaken and enjoy life once again. It worked for me! If once you've read it you feel the same way I do...Please tell your friends or better yet buy them a copy. Then you too will be helping to make a better world one person at a time. An old proverb for teachers is, 'A teacher affects eternity they never know where their influence stops' I feel this way about this book. Its influence can change the world as long as everyone is exposed to it! Enjoy,

This book really speaks to me. My mind is so busy that sometimes I absentmindedly arrive at a place and then ask myself what I wanted to do here. Within a few moments my mind goes through a number of different thoughts forgetting about the reason that directed me to a certain place. And this is why this book is so helpful. Eckhart Tolle provides simple solution to people like me. The solution is simple but in no way it is easy! The solution is getting rid of the noise in the head and focusing on the present moment and the one single activity that you are undertaking in this moment. In a way this book is -- to a certain degree -- a rehash of the author's previous work titled 'The Power of Now.' However, if you have already read The Power of Now I still suggest getting 'A New Earth' as there is still a great amount of new material. In a way in both books Tolle deals with the same subject matter, but in my opinion he is doing a much better job explaining the subject in this book. The author's soft-spoken manner permeates the whole work and makes it an easy and relaxed reading. A big part of the book is devoted to identifying the many faces of 'and dealing with' the 'EGO' ''the voice in the head that pretends to be you'' which is the culprit of our mental suffering that author calls 'The Pain-Body' ''the emotions that are the body's reaction to what the voice in the head is saying''. Tolle suggests ways for breaking free of the Pain-Body and finding who you really are. Unhappiness and negativity are everywhere around us. Surprisingly they are felt more deeply in the affluent western world, as we are more deeply identified with forms and trapped in our egos. The joy of being, the only true happiness, cannot come to us from anywhere, we can only experience it from the formless dimension within us after we allow the diminishment of the ego. This book is not to be read like a novel. I suggest reading it slowly - just a few pages at a time, and practicing the author's suggestions. In the realm of spirituality no-one of us will probably have the same experience, but I dare say that the deeper you get into it the more powerful the experience will be. The secret is getting to the awareness outside of thinking, to the awareness of true being. Get the book and try it out. It might also speak to you.

Great reading, it really helps you to ground yourself, and look at life in a whole new perspective. Although some of his teachings and/or beliefs, may not be mainstream religion, he somehow brings all beliefs into this book. The most amazing thing that I have found with all of his books that I read, just holding them in your hand, brings some since of peace to your mind.

I recommend this book, it is great follow-up to the Power of Now.

I always believed you need to know where you came from to know where you are going. You live what you learn. This book is the perfect example of that. Scarry to dig deep for some people, but definitely worth the trip to make the rest of your life better. I want to read the book again, in case I missed anything.

For those of you who gave this book a bad review you have totally miss the point. Mr. Tolle doesn't write about being right in his discovery, his spiritual realization of his own enlightment. Only those who are ready will feel it in their soul. I am a practicing catholic and this book has been a journey to go deeper into my faith. To dispute how many people were killed in the inquistion is pointless the point is that the church is responsibly for most of the murders which shouldn't have happening in the first place. All Mr.Tolle is doing is sharing in how he has awaken. Don't get stuck in the dogma of your faith. People have use their faith to do unthinkable acts(like the sex abuse by priests)and that is a fact just read history. Jesus did say to know ourself and I think this great book is a excellent start. If you are ready your soul will know. Peace and Love to all.

A good, thought-provoking book that is along the lines of modern buddism and new-ageism. Not anything earth shattering, but a good read nonetheless.

I hit rock bottom after coming back from Iraq, to a daughter who didn't seem to take to me, and a wife that had been a single mom while I was away. This book alone changed my life! It broke down my thought pattern and showed me the way to true happiness! This book is a book I can always keep around and open up to any page for a little boost in my day. I've been reading it on average 2-3 times a day, and I was never a reader before this book! An amazing book, and one I will always hold on too!

I bought this book and went through the Life Class with Mr. Tolle and Oprah. The book is so boring, hard-to-follow and pretty complicated. I think of myself as being pretty bright and fairly spiritual but..... i'm sorry but this nice gentleman does NOT live in the real world with spouses, kids, animals, jobs, etc. etc. It would be a great book if you lived a solitary life, a contemplative life. I can see kind of where he's going, but man, he takes forever to get there. We need a book called A NEW EARTH FOR REAL PEOPLE. Snore. The on-line class was pretty good although he is not the most animated speaker. Bless his heart, he does seem kind and earnest.

Amazing insights to finding out who you are and how you handle life. I've read it twice cover to cover and I still refer back to it from time to time when things are bringing me down. A MUST!!!!!

There are some readers will say that Tolle is rehashing and recycling teachings of Buddhism, etc, and while I wont say it isn't true, I will say...who cares? Tolle does use not only Buddhism, but Hinduism, and teachings from Christianity to convey his message. Is it a perfect book? No, but it does have some very good information that I and many others have found useful. Take what works for you and leave the rest out. If you look hard enough for negative aspects you will find them no matter what you are reading. I would say it is worth reading and it did confirm a lot of what I thought prior to reading it and did help me look at myself and my relationship to the rest of the world in a different light.

Without question Eckhart Tolle is an author/spiritual writer that should not go without acknowledgment. Being the adult child of drug addicted/alcoholic parents, I have been trying to come to come to terms with my depression and understanding of life. Recently I have been to AA and a personal therapist without any answers to relieve the stress/anxiety I have been experiencing. Being an avid reader, I perused the shelves of B&N looking for something else to help me. I saw Tony Robbins, Joel Osteen and Eckhart Tolle. I left the shelves and returned several times. Something pulled me to "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle. I purchased and am now on my third time listening. With a soothing voice Mr. Tolle describes the beginning of earth and how one should be aware of and recognize the ego and how the wants and needs of the today's people take away from the recognition of what we really are. I was literally in my car listening and felt as if I had been awakened and relieved of the stress of feeling as if I was constantly in a state of needing to prove who I was and be a better version of who i was. The book helps one understand that it is not "what we have" but "what we do" to recognize our inner selves. It has helped me more than any meeting or therapist and I cannot wait to read more of his books! Thank you Mr. Tolle!

Eckhart Tolle is an author who, in this book, has combined the philosophies of Buddha, Freud, Jesus and others into something so simple and easy to comprehend in today's life. He shows us how to become fulfilled with being who we are. Many of us live through 2 people in our minds.Many of us live with pain, guilt, and suffering. Eckhart Tolle show us how to release ourselves from this thought process and become one. His philosophy in the book, The Power of Now, is fully explained and taught in The New Earth; he teaches you how to live in the now. That this moment is all that is; all that will ever be. He guides you in a way to live that lifts many burdens.

Following the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, Ferenc Margitics PhD created the New Spiritual Consciousness Scale (NSCS) and carried out its statistical analysis (Handbook of New Spiritual Consciousness: Theory and Research; New Spiritual Consciousness and the Transformation of Personality). The purpose has been developing a new measuring instrument for the recognition of spiritual consciousness

This book is for people looking to understand how their belief systems affect their behavior and make the world what it is. Not easy to face but inspirational. I liked it very much. Perhaps because all of us can find ourselves or someone we know somewhere in the descriptions, we are called to take a look at ourselves and make changes. I think that the task proposed is oversimplified but nonetheless worth trying. Negativity is everywhere but it starts with the individual.

I do not have enough superlatives to express how meaningful this book is to me. Tolle's message has helped me continue down a path of living a more selfless and positive life. This is a book I will read over and over again and get something new each time. This is definitely in the top ten best books that I have ever read.
