The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

This product was recommended by Sarah Walker from Dog Food Desire

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle is the best book about living life to the fullest, but what works for one person can’t necessarily be applied to another. Basically, The Now is where your True Self exists- it’s beyond time and beyond space. So if you’re able to live in The Now, then you are no longer subjected to the stresses of past or future worries because they don’t exist in The Now (you cannot stress yourself out about something that doesn’t exist). When we think of ourselves as many different people over many different scenes through time, we reinforce our sense of separateness which disconnects us from our True Nature. Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now is a classic book about living life to the fullest. It makes such a significant difference in people’s lives that it has been recommended by members of Oprah’s Book Club and Nobel laureates like Dr. Hans Selye and Mother Teresa. The audiotape version of this book changed my life when I listened to it in 1998, and although I already had many self-help books at that time in my library, none seemed as deep in theory, nor actionable in the application at the moment as was this one.
