Eckhart Tolle: 10 Rules for Success by the Author of ‘The Power of Now’

Eckhart Tolle

I’ve been a HUGE fan of Eckhart Tolle’s ever since the release of his first book The Power of Now.

On nearly every page I’ve underlined sentences, I’ve highlighted those same sentences, I’ve starred the paragraphs those sentences are in.

I couldn’t get enough of that book. It’s that deep.

It’s one of the few books I’ve read that’s not only worth reading twice, but many times over.

I still flip through it nearly 20 years later to gain insight and peace of mind.

The Power of Now is a sort of spiritual text book if you will.

It helps raise your consciousness. Eckhart Tolle is practical if nothing else.

He offers simple, yet effective physical and mental exercises, he doesn’t just tell you to meditate.

Eckhart Tolle’s wisdom is so deep it’s astounding.

He takes the broad nebulous concept of “New Age” spirituality and condenses it into actionable chunks. We get it and we love him for it.

In his second book, A New Earth, he expands his understandings to include how we can help raise the consciousness of the planet not just our own.

Although, the two are impossible to separate.

The Eckhart Tolle mantra is all about how human beings need to live in the now and stop the mind from incessantly catapulting us ahead or behind where we are.

He doesn’t talk about his past much, but when he does it’s always to illuminate a point he’s trying to make in the moment.

He talks about how the world, as it’s defined now, would have seen him as a failure at 50 years old.

He was not married and had no children. His work had been low paying and sporadic for years.

His parents didn’t understand what he was doing with his life. He was now middle aged. What was wrong with their son?

Then just a few short years later The Power of Now was published.

It launched an ever expanding business that has him flying around the world giving lectures, many other books on the subject of mediation, spirituality and consciousness, as well as, a successful website which offers TV, videos of his workshops, articles, interviews, a forum and other spiritual goodies given by Tolle.

If you have not read either of these books (or any of his other ones) I highly recommend you do. It’s well worth your time.

You may feel you don’t need greater peace of mind (a rarity you are!). If that’s the case, then it can offer a very interesting perspective on the world and the people in it.

Anyway, you look at it Tolle’s intelligence and access to something Higher shines through.
