Eckhart Tolle has been an inspiring author and teacher since his first book The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment?, a New York Times Best Seller.
In A New Earth, Tolle expands his philosophy and shows how rising above our ego can open the door for us to fully reach our potential.
Tolle describes how our attachment to the ego prevents us from connecting to who we really are: ?Whenever you are in a negative state, there is something in you that wants the negativity, that perceives it as pleasurable, or that believe it will get you what you want.? (page 111)
Understanding the direct connection between our ego and our awareness helps us shift from contraction (ego) to expansion and growth (awareness).
This is not an easy read. Tolle’s ideas are deep, profound and spiritual. What works for me is to read just a few pages at a time and then taking time to think and reflect before moving on.
Great book for starting 2013 on the right foot. Let it guide you into finding your true identity and purpose.
Happy New Year!
