This week, Life Training Online is reviewing The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment, by Eckhart Tolle, the tenth of fifty-two books in the 52 Personal Development Books in 52 Weeks series.
I remember first hearing about this book while reading The Millionaire Course by James Allen. If you’ve ever read that book, you may have noticed that Allen seems to quote quite extensively from The Power of Now. After reading some of those quotes and becoming intrigued by the title, I decided to finally pick it up and take a look.
Ekhart Tolle’s message is a simple one: live in the now and you’ll find true happiness and enlightenment. While it’s not a new concept by any means, I noticed, after briefly glancing over the book, that Tolle seems to have added a fresh voice to this seemingly simple idea.
The Power of Now promises to show the reader how to see beyond their own mind and emotions, thereby opening up the beauty and power of “the Now”. Is this just another book in a growing genre on how to be more awake in our daily lives, or will it stand apart from the rest? Let’s find out this week…
The Power of Now is the tenth of fifty-two books in Life Training – Online’s series 52 Personal Development Books in 52 Weeks.
