Loved it, worth buying. ( )

It took me quite awhile to finish this book. There was a great deal for me to digest. Even then, I believe this is one that I will have to periodically refer back to in the future.

"The mind identified state is severely dysfunctional. It is a form of insanity.

"Almost everyone is suffering from this illness in varying degrees. The moment you realize this, there can be no more resentment. How can you resent someone's illness. The only appropriate response is compassion."

This is a concept that stood out so starkly and put things in greater perspective for me. It also gave new meaning to the words "we're all crazy here". According to Tolle, as long as we continue to identify with the mental self as our True self... We truly are. ( )

Eckhart Tolle has rapidly emerged as one of the world’s most inspiring spiritual leaders. In "The Power of Now", he shared the enlightenment he himself experienced after a startling personal transformation. This book, "Practising the Power of Now", extracts the essence of his teachings about how to free oneself from enslavement to the mind. Eckhart Tolle’s views go beyond any particular religion, doctrine or guru. The goal is to be able to enter into and sustain an enlightened state of consciousness throughout everyday life. Through meditations and simple techniques, Eckhart Tolle shows readers how to quieten their thoughts, see the world in the present moment, and find the truest path to happiness.

Book description
Met het daverende succes van zijn eerste boek 'De kracht van het Nu' is Eckhart Tolle echt doorgebroken als een van de meest toonaangevende spirituele lereren van de laatste tijd. Zijn recept voor 'leven in het nu' blijkt bij zeer velen enorm aan te slaan. Tolle slaagt erin ons op eenvoudige en transparante wijze duidelijk te maken hoe we ons kunnen bevrijden uit het keurslijf, gevormd door onze gedachten, ervaringen en dogma's die te maken hebben met ons verleden, en volledig in het Nu kunnen leven. Eigenlijk is het allemaal zo simpel, maar juist daarom blijkt het vaak zo moeilijk te zijn. We moeten alleen de 'knop' zien te vinden waarmee we onszelf kunnen 'omschakelen'. Eckhart Tolle reikt ons de benadering aan waar we die kwantumsprong in ons bewustzijn mee kunnen maken.
In 'De kracht van het Nu in de praktijk' wordt Tolle's recept nog eens in gecondenseerde en praktische vorm aangeboden.
