This spiritual guide authored by Eckhart Tolle emphasizes on a keen awareness of the present moment by completely undoing the ego. It also explains how to realize life’s purpose for a new earth.
Summary of the book
In A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose, Tolle explains in detail why ego is the primary hindrance to an awakened state of mind. To seek the fullness and comprehend the purpose of one’s life, the ego must be diminished and one must cherish the simplest joys of life. Profusion and inadequacy are merely inner states of mind and the mind can be mastered. Eckhart also quotes examples from Hinduism, Zen, and other philosophies to establish the perfection of the ‘Now’ state - the present state. When this paradigm shift in the deep consciousness happens, a new earth is created with awakened minds and souls.
This book changed my life. It's a brilliant and very practical spiritual guide that teaches the way to inner peace: how to live in the moment and get beyond the ego, Santa Montefiore, bestselling author of The Secret Hours
A mind-blowing read. We get so caught up in the minutiae of everyday life, worrying about things we have no control over. This book helps you take a look at what you can do to change your attitude toward this. It reminds you to stay in the moment and not allow your ego to take over. I would highly recommend it to anyone doing some soul searching or spiritual learning., Helen James (author of A Sense of Home), Sunday Business Post
