I’m one of those people that will gladly wait for hours at the airport and soak up the travelling excitement. One of the best things about it is having the time to finally finish reading my books and then buying new ones. And so it happened that The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle caught my attention with its electric blue cover at London Heathrow airport.
I’ve been a keen meditator before I found the book and had a firm understanding of how important it is to stay present in the moment to avoid your mind wandering into the past and future, often resulting in mental pain. The Power of Now helped me understand the theory of living in the moment in a very detailed manner, and acted as a daily reminder to keep returning into the present moment even when my mind decides to happily drift off and clock out for the day.
What I LOVED about this book!
Eckhart Tolle has the ability to take the idea of happiness (that my mind often complicates to the max) and explain it in such beautiful detail that helps me realise just how simple attaining happiness really is. It also fills me up with enthusiasm to keep practising living in the NOW, even if it was easier said than done at the beginning of my journey. I’m definitely not there yet, but this book helped me kickstart a more conscious chapter of my life. Brilliantly done, Mr Tolle, and thank you, thank you, thank you!
Also, the book is written in a sort of a Q&A style (a collection of questions thrown at Mr Tolle in the past), which helped with my understanding of the subject enormously, as I felt like my exact questions were being answered right in front of me.
What I loved a little less…
is the fact that it took a lot of mental energy to finish the book. I found myself pausing often to let everything soak in and let my subconscious break down deeply rooted (false) beliefs about happiness and life itself in order to be ready to accept these new simple ideas. That was obviously not Mr Tolle’s fault, it just took me a little bit longer to read!
The Power of Now is definitely not a light read, but once you reach that final page you will not be the same person.
Now that is a guarantee!
Enjoy the book and welcome to the You’ve been Tollerised club!
I am all for being honest and transparent. I created this website because I have a (slightly insane) obsession with both crystals and chakras and feel a strong need to spread my knowledge and enthusiasm.
I am an affiliate marketer, which means that every time you purchase a crystal or any other product by following a link from my website I get a small commission. That way you support my efforts and enable me to create more content, post regular updates and help me spread the love of crystals, for which I am eternally grateful! And so are the crystals, I hope:)
