Bought as a gift.

Got this as a gift for my girlfriend and she read it within 2 days of its arrival twice and loved it. This is a great book for those who are dealing with depression and anxiety.

El poder del ahora

El poder del ahora es un libro para releer una y otra vez, y cada vez que lo haga, usted lograra profundizar mas y encontrar nuevos significados. Muchas personas querran estudiarlo toda la vida, pues es una guia, un curso completo de meditacion y realizacion. Es un libro con elpoder de cambiar vidas, de despertamos para comprender plenamente quienes somos. El mensaje de Tolle es el mismo que Christo y Buda ensenaron: se puede alcanzar un estado de iluminacion, de realizacion espiritual, aqui y ahora. Es posible liberanos del sufrimiento, de la ansiedad y la neurosis de la vida diaria. Para logario solo tenemos que llegar a comprender que la causa de nuestros problemas no son los demas, ni "el mundo de alla afuera", sino nuestra propiamente, aparentemente incapaz de concentrarse en el ahora por estar siempre pensando en el pasando y preocupandose por el futuro. --- from book's back cover

Uno de los mejores libros que he leido en mi vida.

Sencillamente un libro transformador y liberador. Recomiendo releerlo una y otra vez. El Sr. Tolle logra comunicar y explicar con palabras sencillas el error fundamental de la humanidad y porque percibimos al mundo como lo hacemos. No pierda esta oportunidad unica.


He leido muchos libros de espiritualidad, autoconocimiento y de conciencia a lo largo de mi vida... y por mucho este es el MEJOR. Un libro INDISPENSABLE para quien en verdad quiera tomar las riendas de su vida, y VIVIR un cambio hacia el amor.

Practical tips for joyous living

Philosophers like Krishnamurti say that the path of spiritual enlightenment starts with being aware of one's own thoughts. Commentators (of Upanishads and Gita) such as Swami Chinmayananda suggest that spiritual enlightenment is attained when the mind quietens. I have great respect for the above authors. However, I was frustrated for a long time as "watching my thoughts" and "quietening the mind" seemed impossible to achieve.In this book, Tolle gives very practical advice on how we can watch our thoughts - the idea is to simply live in the present, in the Now. "...Make it your practice to withdraw attention from past and future whenever they are not needed. Step out of the time dimension as much as possible in everyday life. If you find it hard to enter the Now directly, start by observing the habitual tendency of your mind to want to escape from the Now..." is a brilliant piece of advice from the book.The book is organised in a question-and-answer format and it is easy to read.When we start reading the book, many questions rise in our heads. E.g. *How can we forget the past? Doesn't past influence on our current situation? * How can we not think about the future? How do we, then, plan for the future? *How practical is it to ignore the time (future)? All these questions and many other questions that come to mind while reading are answered in the book.If you plan to read this book please think about the following: many of us read books like these and find them 'interesting'. As long as we are reading the book we feel inspired and we live in the Now. A while later, we go back to our routine and forget about living in the Now. To get the true benefit from this book, my suggestion is to create some measures so that you are reminded of the principles regularly. Some things you can do:*Write down your questions, their answers and your other thoughts that come to mind, while reading the book. Review these regularly. *Find people who are interested in discussing the issues relating to spiritual enlightenment and discuss. *Make it a point to read or listen to books that relate to living the Now, on a regular basis.

Clear, Intelligent, Gentle

Although I have always felt myself to be vaguely spiritual, I had never bought a book on spirituality before, shunned anything that smacked of religion, and wouldn't be caught dead in the New Age section. However, a friend recommended Tolle's book, and I found myself completely absorbed in it from beginning to end. Tolle himself would probably agree that there is nothing essentially "new" about the ideas in the book; the value lies in the clear, intelligent and gentle way in which they are presented. This book is carefully, thoughtfully and beautifully written. Not only does it illuminate the fundamental, slippery, destructive patterns of the mind or ego which confound one's spiritual and even physical well-being, but it also provides a variety of simple and practical techniques for breaking down and dissolving these various forms of mental pollution. I use Tolle's calming, contemplative techniques every day and throughout the day, and they work wonderfully for me. I've read the book twice so far and have given it to others as a gift. The companion tapes are excellent as well.
