Eckhart Tolle writes a very compelling book that would make anyone consider taking a deep look at their current viewpoint of reality. In The Power Of Now, Tolle has a tendency for packing mass amounts of meaning into every sentence. He even advises the reader to stop at many points in the book and think about what s/he just read.

One of Tolle's main points is that who you truly are, and your mind, are separate. He discourages analytic thinking and identifying yourself with what your thoughts and feelings are. Tolle emphasizes that everyone has a "Being" inside them and all they have to do is detach from their analytic mind. According to Tolle, when someone gains total access to their "Being" they gain a deep peace and are totally free of suffering.

The book got it's name from Tolle's other main point, living in the now. Tolle states this very well as: "Nothing ever happened in the past; it happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the Now." Tolle goes on to say that someone who lives completely in the Now is free of suffering because suffering can only happen when regretting about the past or worrying about the future. However, Tolle doesn't say to just live in the moment, he states that a person should plan and be responsible but only do this as much as is necessary, then come back to the Now.

Tolle goes into much deeper detail on what is written here and more. His diction and writing style draws the reader in. Any open minded person looking for a new view on life, happiness, peace, and even death, should check this book out. It could very possibly change your life.
