A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose Reviews
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 un ...more
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.
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 th ...more
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 Journa ...more
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 ...more
هذا كتاب لا يُقرأ .. هذا كتاب يُحتفى بقراءته .. من أفضل ما قرأت في حياتي .. فوق الوصف وفي عنق الدهشة وأكبر من اللغة .. كتاب يفتح الضوء داخلك .. الأرض الجديدة ليست يوتوبيا .. الأرض الجديدة هي أنا وأنت .. هي الوعي والحضور .. هي الحقيقة .. التي فتحت ثقبا ينزف منه الفرح في داخلي ..
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 to ...more
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 exa ...more
