The Power Of Now: A Guide To Spiritual Enlightenment is a book that teaches its readers how to find a path that leads one to find inner peace and tranquility.
The Power of Now: A Guide To Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle takes readers on a journey of self-discovery, a spiritual journey that has no religious affiliations. The book uses ancient wisdom and insights to show people how they can achieve a sense of peace and well-being by learning to recognize who they really are.
For this, the author first distinguishes between the Manifested and the Unmanifested. The Manifested beings include all the varied life forms that experience the cycle of birth and death. The author, Eckhart Tolle, then speaks of one supreme entity, the Unmanifested, which he terms as ‘The Being’.
Tolle says that a person’s mind does not really define the person, although people assume that they are the result of years of social and cultural conditioning, and their minds’ perceptions. He says there is a deeper presence in every individual that voices out one’s thoughts. He also talks about how a person’s ego holds him back from connecting with the universe, creating an illusion of separation. He stresses on the importance of letting go of all the confusion and chaos created by the mind and identifying the inner presence, which will help one achieve ‘the joy of being’.
The book invites people to live in the present (‘the now’, as it is termed), without fighting against the ultimate reality of what exists, in order to achieve tranquility and peace of mind. This positive state can help people avoid rash decisions and put things in perspective before taking a call.
The book’s deep insights into unlocking the human consciousness by surrendering to the ‘Now’ can help readers find a deeper meaning to life, in addition to giving them new ways in which they can handle problems.
