Book of the Week: A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

Hello, my friends!

Today I have yet another awesome book for you! “A New Earth” is a great book that helps you understand the importance of the moment in which you live. This beautiful book catches the modern day way of thinking or rather overthinking and reliving moments from the past or imagining impossible scenarios. You do that a lot too, right? Well, let me tell you, once you read this book you will understand how meaningless it is to do so, and how much pain it can cause you. Even though Tolle relies on some religions to make a point the beautiful part is that even without focusing on religion he wrote a deep, meaningful and spiritual book. While this might not be a book that you will read with the speed of light it is great because it allows you to see how your ego-driven view of the world is clouding your view of the bigger picture. And it’s a shame really to live in such way.

You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.
— Eckhart Tolle
