There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I found myself laughing in moments (even though it’s not supposed to be funny). The amusement comes from the reality of how obscure some of our fundamental beliefs are.
Paraphrasing an example in the book explaining how there is no past or future, there can only be now ...
“If you ask an eagle or a bear, what time is it, they would say the time is now and think, what a stupid question.”
Brilliant book & great audio.
I found the flow - especially the arrangements of topics - well arranged.
The author has shared his life experience without any sugar coating. The book can be one's lifelong companion.
So far it's been rather mind-blowing, in that it appears to be a rational and concise synthesis of most of my personal psychological researches of the past 50 years, from Maslow in the 60's, followed by a long interest in Eastern belief systems, and many alternate psychological viewpoints including, amongst others, the "channelings" of SETH via Jane Roberts. All, while never providing "The Answer", adding to my overt and subconscious understanding of "Life, The Universe, and Everything".
Now in these later days I've been trying to understand whatever relationships may exist between Reality, Thought, and Consciousness, using the scence of Quantum Physics as a connecting link. Innately I feel that the scope of this research now extends way beyond any spiritual and metaphysical yearnings that have for aeons been the province of Religion, which has used our needs as a tool of mis-information and social control.
This amazing book appears to be doing it for me, and I believe that any person approaching this book with an open mind, and an ability to release the PC bonds of the so-called "New Age" Religion Replacement Paradigm, will greatly benefit from these perceptive words of wisdom, which aren't limited by any pre-determined paradigm. Wherever you're coming from, or going to, on whichever road, then this book is surely the most wonderful Travel Guide to yourself.
I hope to post a fuller review on completion, if ever . . . I'm continually back-referencing and returning to previous points of interest, so don't hold your breath . . .
This book the Power of Now have given me new teaching new insites in my journey of life.
The Power of Now is an absolute must read book. Even thou I put the book down 3 years ago that's still ok. I still read the book and I also have it on Audio.

My recommended books are
Grow rich While You Sleep by Ben Sweetland
TNT: The Power Within by Claude Bristol
Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz
There's no waffle in these books.
Basically get the habit of success thinking instilled in you mind by disciplining yourself to think that way. Initially you have to force yourself to think success thoughts rather than letting your thinking run on autopilot, being influenced by the outside world. The more you force yourself to think success, the more your mind will do it.
Thinking habits apparently take 21 days to form so as they say, your result will reflect your efforts.
Your subconscious take notice of whatever you think and feel. Rather than listen to the author's videos on YT, I'd recommend listening to Bob Proctor who has studied success thinking for over five decades and was mentored by the late Earl Nightingale. By the way, there's two excellent recordings from Earl Nightingale on YT, The Strangest Secret and the condensed audio of Hill's Think & Grow Rich.
His writing style is unbearable. For example, "It is a misperception of your essential reality that is beyond birth and death, and is due to the limitations of your mind, which, having lost touch with Being creates the body as evidence of its illusory belief in separation and to justify its state of fear." JFC.
I finally put this book away for good after reading half of it. I really don't understand the book's popularity. It's like everybody is nodding, smiling, and singing Tolle's praises, when the reality is that nobody gets it because there is nothing to "get." But nobody wants to say it.
