The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle / Book Summary.
Eckhart Tolle is a spiritual teacher who does not associate with any singular religion. Despite his confidence in his work on Enlightenment, we must not think of him as some prophet sent to us with these teachings. He was merely a man who was looking for a meaning, just like the rest of us.
Although Tolle states that we should not look back at the past and allow it to shape us, he does relive his past in his introduction to share with us how he became so enlightened. He questioned, just like a lot of us, "what is there for me?" It was this question that made him realize his thinking and why he would think it. It was then that he decided to focus on the thinking, watching it and not judging, but try to change it. Through his own transforming experience, he has brought us a way to transform ourselves. To stop thinking, "what is there for me" (to stop thinking in general) and realize what we truly have, the present. The Now.
