It's no wonder that The Power of Now has sold over 2 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 30 foreign languages. Much more than simple principles and platitudes, the book takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light. In the first chapter, Tolle introduces readers to enlightenment and its natural enemy, the mind. He awakens readers to their role as a creator of pain and shows them how to have a pain-free identity by living fully in the present. The journey is thrilling, and along the way, the author shows how to connect to the indestructible essence of our Being, "the eternal, ever-present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death." Featuring a new preface by the author, this paperback shows that only after regaining awareness of Being, liberated from Mind and intensely in the Now, is there Enlightenment.
This book teaches you how to become a more grounded person by living more in the present rather than the past and future.

Another of Several Copies
This is perhaps the most important book I have EVER read! I have been an avid reader and seeker for 40 years. This hardcover copy arrived in excellent condition, and is intended to be a gift. I pick this book up when too many other people reach for their tranquilizers. It got me through the profound anxiety of forced early retirement in June 2013. I discern that it embodies the deepest and most mystical teachings of Mahamudra in Tibetan Buddhism and the meaning of a pseudo-Gnostic Christian Gospel such as Thomas, without saying so explicitly. Thus, it is about lived, realizable experience, not mere belief. There is no religious jargon. The book actually alters one's consciousness to become aware of Being while one reads it. It is not only a work of genius, it is a 'transmission' of Mind to mind!

This book made me aware of my existence. I am feel free from stress, worry about the past the present and the future. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a better life. To feel free from blame, guilt and shame. To know the powers within when you surrender and take responsibility for self, thoughts, and actions. It gives a deeper sense of what is real and what is not. I felt a joy that did not come from things - people, or materials. I am enjoying a different rhythm noticing nature - trees, animals - living things that gives energy to be one with life.

The Power of Now
This is a great book. It was recommended to me by a friend. I am just in the middle of reading it. This is a good book to put you in touch with what is really important in your life.

Hit the nail on the head.
For me this book was looking into a mirror and putting into words what I had already discovered. Yet, reading it still managed to enlighten me even further and delight me totally. It is the best book I've ever picked up. It clarifies the teachings of Tao, the Buddha, and Jesus, explaining them with a modern psychological twist. With words it explains that which is impossible to understand with words. Read it correctly and you will be enlightened
