A New Earth: Awakening to your Life’s Purpose
One of those, Life changing books.
I will forever be in Debt to you Mr Tolle, thank you for teaching me how to slow my mind down and admire the breeze.
If you think too much, this book is for you. It consists of ten chapters. In first chapter, Ekhart Tolle talks about the purpose of the book stating that it can be totally useful or meaningless for whom to read it. It will be useful if at the end, you are peaceful. He mentions,” The ideas and concepts presented here [in the book] may be important. But, they are secondary. They are no more than signposts pointing toward awakening. As you read, a shift takes place within you. The book’s main purpose is not to add new information or beliefs in your mind or try to convince you of anything, but to bring about a shift in your consciousness.” However, the book can be meaningless if one is not ready spiritually.
In the Oprah’s interview, Mr.Tolle shows a way to manage the voice in the head stating that whenever it comes, do not pay attention to it. “If you resist ego, it will persist”, he emphasizes. Just let it be there as it is. This way, you are the awareness behind it and as awareness comes in, unawareness goes away.
In the end, the book has promising news. By being awakened, we build a new earth. The new earth is not a utopia. The new earth comes when external world is in accordance with the internal world and when we are egoless, in the surrendered state, in oneness with ourselves, others, the whole universe and God. So, this awakened individual can change everything on the earth because outer life is not inseparable of the consciousness within. And, it mentions it is already happening, “A new species is arising on the planet, it is arising now and you are it.”
“For me this is one of the best spirituality, happiness books of all time. Face it, people study Law to become Lawyers, in the same way studying his books will bring an unbelievable sense of inner peace and ‘clicking’ moments” “I most strongly recommend Eckhart Tolle, in particularly this book to anyone that thinks too much, or is feeling the effects of internal conflicts. “
