designed to break all those self-inhibitions that blind us from seeing what we really are worth. It is
fascinating how our own minds can confine us and prevent us from seeing what we really ought to be seeing
The Power Of Now is the work of Eckhart Tolle, which will calm your mind and take you through a
journey that you’ve never experienced before.
This book is special because it is able to awaken the spirituality into the realm of every person,
particularly in the world-view of the western world. By using a simple, common language which is expressive and
deep, Eckhart was able to effortlessly accomplish this.
As a reader, you will get an experience if you are ready to let it happen, and this is the gist of
the book – experience is the book’s main purpose. On the other hand, this has been the main reason for the
strongest critical views about the book because it is only understood with the analytical mind.
What you’ll find in the book

Chapter 2 – ‘consciousness; the way out of pain’. The author suggests that we always become
familiar with the present moment, make friends with it, accept it and then act from it. By becoming aware of the

force called love.
