    1. Okay so I had high expectations for this book Normally I don t really go for Oprah selections but I heard so many great things about it plus I am totally into new agey type things, I thought it would be right up my alley.My problem with this book was twofold First, a lot of the ideas weren t new to me Living in the present you are not walking across the room to get a book, you are walking across the room , not letting your ego attach itself to things that is not my car or my house , etc And for [...]

    2. Oprahmercial Well if you can over look that aspect I highly recommend this book Tolle s penmanship allows difficult philosophical, psychological principles to come together simplified This book simplifies complex notions of western approaches with an eastern point of view on metaphysics I think it is a helpful tool for those cynical about the current state of humanity I also believe it could be a great entry book into Eastern philosophy He seems to Americanize complex metaphysical approaches of [...]

    3. What is so powerful about this book is not that there is much new material here We ve all heard about how the ego keeps us chained to our judgements, fears, and desires The difference is in how the author explains his points Finally, we understand Wouldn t you love it if all the stuff you ve read about enlightenment suddenly became crystal clear I see you all nodding This is it.Throughout the entire book, he reiterates the same points He does not offer instructions Here s a great example how to [...]

    4. I opened this book, hoping to find something inspiring, eye opening, and life changing Instead, it appears to be filled with the same old New Age babble about self actualization and each being the part of the one It s not that I disagree it s just that I don t think there s anything particularly new or different The same old, same old about non judgment, embracing all things, blah blah blah Call me crazy, but I think I ve read this about 100 times before in every issue of New Age Journal.Not onl [...]

    5. ok, i m about half way through first thing i notice is this guy is pretty long winded it took him 127 pages to tell me that the ego is the source of all the earths problems Anything you feel or think or say comes from the ego and thats a bad thing we all need to be enlighted and gain awareness of our presence heres a nice quote from the book Enlightened collectives will fulfill an important function in the arising of the new consciousness Just as egoic collectives pull you into unconsciousness a [...]

    6. This book is so amazing, I had to read it slow so I would absorb it all It moved me to tears many times, so I had to stop a lot I have not read The Power of Now, but this one really resonated with me and current challenges in personal and planetary transformation I loved how he snuck in bits from major religions and explained their universal relevance outside the context of their religious context The personal examples are quite illustrative help ground the book s meaning.

    7. Loved this book It has changed how I look at life I read a lot of self help , spiritual insight books and this is one of the best I have ever read I just finished it and I want to read it again His writing is very easy to understand clear and simple and he shares insights that you can use in your life immediately IT is chock full of fascinating insights on every page.Some of my favorite points are 1 The pain body a psychic parasite inside of us that feeds on drama and enjoys negative thoughts On [...]

    8. This book is completely awful Don t feed in to the Oprah hype It s abstract and somewhat hard to follow, even for me, a third year law student Not entertaining at all There are some tidbits of useful information, but if your mother taught you anything, you probably have already heard the useful parts There are also a lot of contradictions in Tolle s writing thought process Don t go on the message boards on Oprah s website because the people on there are crazy nutjobs and can t provide any helpfu [...]

    9. I was a skeptic at first glance It was only moments after i read about feeling my inner body that i was feeling my pillow and sleeping soundly and this is no small feat However, the further i got into the book, the i enjoyed it.The self help author, highlights the benefits of life spent in the moment and gives concrete exercises to help transcend our ego based consciousness This he argues, is the key to personal happiness and fulfillment.Illuminating it gives something to aspire to although i g [...]

    10. In A New Earth Awakening to Your Life s Purpose, Eckhart Tolle simply and beautifully employs spiritual parables from many traditions to distill and illuminate the One truth to which they point God in me me in God Form the material world is interpenetrated by nothingness space, quantum possibilities, consciousness, spirit, God If so many cultures can agree that we, as form, are permeated with spirit, why do we experience so much separation and suffering Tolle states that suffering is created whe [...]

    11. I think that because I have what I feel is a strong faith, this book just didn t make a big impression I feel like a lot of the ego stuff he was talking about is basically morals and values, of which if you already have a high regard for and were taught about them, then a new awakening to being good is sort of insulting.Anyone can be mindful for an instant, staying mindful, though, can be the work of a lifetime I feel like Tolle has reduced himself to a shell of a person with no ego, no emotions [...]

    12. Practically spot on treatment of the ego as problem source Lots of advice that would be beneficial for most people.Philosophically not rigorous, despite an implicit claim to be the next step following the path from Descartes through Sartre Equivocal vocabulary lets him subtly draw questionable logical connections Some metaphysical foundations are implicitly assumed Notably missing is any treatment of ethics, or much in the way of implications at all All in all, I am probably giving him too much [...]

    13. It s been qyite a while since I read this I remember reading it during a soul searching time in my life I also remember the great inspiration and clarity I felt while reading Unfortunately, Echkart Tolle seems to have become greedy he started selling guide after guide, workbook after workbook, and audio guides for everything he preaches The amount of MERCHANDISE that goes with an Eckart Tolle book is reminiscent of the toys and dolls created after a hit Disney Movie Did I mention he did the Opra [...]

    14. This is a wonderful and very helpful book Coming from a ACIM vantage point, it takes a little bit to adjust to his terminology, because Tolle uses words in a different way His Consciousness is ACIM s Spirit and Mind, and ACIM s consciousness and the thoughts you think you think is Tolle s thoughts Likewise ACIM s guilt equates to Tolle s pain body, so in a way it s simply the wrong mind His biblical New Earth is the Course s Real World On and on So, once you adjust for those variations of termin [...]

    15. To me, this book is pretty much a great overview on what is wrong with the world the human ego In a weird way, I regret ever having read this book because it opened my eyes so greatly to the hidden egocentric motivation behind every human thought and action that I can t stop seeing the underlying ego behind everything, and everyone, I encounter I think this book should be required reading for everyone the problem is, many people will read this book and see others in it, but not themselves Today, [...]

    16. 5 stars Uplifting and inspiring Having Oprah Winfrey say, Your book is my book club pick epitomizes a leap in success It s certainly the dream of almost every author I know For one Canadian author it s a dream come true Vancouver based author and spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle must feel like he s riding a wave His book A New Earth Awakening to Your Life s Purpose is Oprah s 61st choice for her book club Oprah is hugely responsible for Tolle s earlier rise in fame as she launched his 2005 book T [...]

    17. This is a follow up to Tolle s The Power of Now I read this one first, and got a lot out of it This is a book about how what we tell ourselves about our world experiences, relationships, events becomes our world, for good or bad It also gives practical advice if you re willing to hang in there about how to transform your thinking so as to improve your life and truly live in the Now Tolle pulls from every religious system out there, and introduces new to me perspectives on biblical passages and [...]

    18. This is basically The Landmark Forum in book form I m very curious about the relationship between Tolle and Landmark Education, but I haven t been able to find any info on that so far I suspect that I find this book so powerful because I ve done The Landmark Forum I suspect it might be a little too theoretical to have much practical impact on my real life if I didn t have that background and training Read this book if you ve ever considered doing the Forum to get a little taste of what the Forum [...]

    19. Initially, I had trouble getting into the book In my mind, the first couple dozen pages seemed written in pig latin I put the book down for a few days and upon resuming, gems as noted below started jumping off the pages When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world Eckhart Tolle e voice in the head, perhaps in the very moment it complains about something, and recognize it for what it is the voice of the eg [...]

    20. I loved the way the A New Earth brings light to how we can get past our ego based conciousness to really experience happiness One of my favorite quotes was on page 134, Although the body is very intelligent, it cannot tell the difference between an actual situation and a thought It reacts to every thought as if it were a reality Another favorite is on pg 141, Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now and if the past cannot prevent you from being present now, w [...]

    21. I was so absolutely disappointed with this book With all the hype I thought it might actually be something good but surprised at how much bull was in it I am feeling so sad about the people that have bought into this bag of bull because they must be in a very desperate place to find themselves and if this is what helps them well, I just cannot imagine the insanity.Seriously If you want to be told that EVERYONE including yourself is Schitzo, posessed and unconsciouss well, then read the book For [...]

    22. Wow This is a life changing book My only criticism is that Tolle is a theorist and so doesn t give many applicable examples of how to use the theories in real life This I ve had to do on my own But this book is well worth the read Here s the rub you can read it and do nothing or you can read it and try to alter your way of thinking When will someone write a book that makes people s lives change that doesn t take work

    23. I just spent the last five plus hours researching, reading this fucking Eckhart Tolle What do I think This is essentially the same book as The Power Of Now The only valid point Tolle has is this it is mentally unhealthy to obsess endlessly over things that we didn t cause in the past, and over things we can t control in the present, and over things that have no likelihood in the future.He doesn t need 220 pages to make that point He doesn t need a book He doesn t even need a whole page within a [...]

    24. The first chapter put me off with proclamations like this This book is about you It will change your state of consciousnessIt can only awaken those who are readyr some, that glimpse will come while reading this bookr othersrough reading The Power of Now also by Eckhart Tolle, by the way or some other spiritually alive and therefore transformational book p 7 And then Tolle goes on to talk about how we have to let go of our egos, which is what gets in the way of awakening Ironic coming from a man [...]
