    Hi newboy

    I have ordered a copy of the power of now from amazon. How was it life changing? If u don't mind my asking

    I've seen a lot of people into New Thought who recommend Tolle. Is his philosophy NT oriented?

  • atypical

    I read "The Power of Now" at the recommendation of another poster here at jwd and loved it. (Thanks, James Thomas!)

    Received my copy of the power of now yesterday - understand what you mean, New Boy. Definitely worth reading.

    Thanks to James Thomas too for recommending it.

    Hi all! It's been a while since I've responded to anything. Hope all are well. I absolutely love Tolle. His bio online is pretty informative as well as his books. He does reference NT some, but only in a way to get the average disheartened Christian to open their minds. Does anyone relate to what he calls the "pain body"?

    I just got "the power of now" on a recommendation from a friend and I'll be starting it this week.

    I've thumbed through it and it looks amazing. can't wait to read it....

    I read it a couple of years ago - The Power of Now. Great book - I got a lot out of it. I was struck by his description of what happened when he becamed enlightened. He said he sat on a park bench and laughed for a couple of years. I found that believable somehow - I think if there is such a thing as "enlightenment" it might strike a person that way. I thought it was interesting too that he said it is possible for the whole human race to screw it all up and not reach enlightenment - depressing but it seems true to me. No guarantees for the human race anyway, eventually our solar system is going to spin into a black hole and disappear. Thanks for reminding me of the book - I think I'll dig it out and read it again.
