Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Move over James Redfield. Since The Power of Now was published in the US in 1999 (2001 in the UK), Eckhart Tolle has become the exciting new name on the guru scene. Tolle's message is profound, but like many of the best spiritual messages, quite simple: you need to discover your true self. That's not the person who walks and talks, or even the person inside your head who thinks your thoughts. Step back, Tolle says, and observe the process of thinking; the person doing the observing is the real you. And the only moment that is real is Now; the past and future can both drag you down, so live in the current moment. This is the path to Enlightenment or Self-Realisation.

For those who have been deeply impressed by Tolle's first book and are waiting for a follow-up, note that Practising the Power of Now is not a new book; it is a collection of extracts from the original book--the edited highlights--and short spiritual exercises. Apparently, it is designed primarily for those who already have the original book, but want a slim and concise volume they can carry around and dip into--the meat without the veg, so to speak.

In comparison with the original book, Practising the Power of Now does seem a little scrappy. It's full of profound messages, but the well-argued connecting material is missing. For those who haven't read either, the original The Power of Now is certainly better value for money--twice the length at the same price. But for fans, for those who prefer bite-sized spiritual truths, or as a gift to either of these, Practising the Power of Now contains all of Tolle's teaching in an easily accessible format. --David V Barrett

Mehr über den Autor

Der spirituelle Lehrer Eckhart Tolle wurde 1948 in Deutschland geboren, wo er auch seine ersten Lebensjahre verbrachte. Nach dem Studium in London arbeitete er im Bereich Supervision an der Universität Cambridge, bevor ihn mit 29 Jahren ein spirituelles Erlebnis völlig veränderte und zu einer grundlegenden Wandlung seines Lebens führte. Er begann seine Erfahrungen mit anderen zu teilen und spirituelle Weisheiten zu lehren, bevor er mit dem Buch "Jetzt - die Kraft der Gegenwart" seine Gedanken einer weltweiten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich machte. Sein Motto: Ja, es gibt einen Weg heraus aus dem Leiden, der direkt zum Frieden führt. Tolles Buch erreichte eine Millionenauflage und wurde bereits in 35 Sprachen übersetzt. Auch das Folgewerk "Eine neue Erde" wurde zum Weltbestseller. Eckhart Tolle lebt heute mit seiner Partnerin Kim Eng, einer spirituellen Lehrerin, in Vancouver, Kanada.

5.0 von 5 Sternen stop the churning thought-mill in your head! 23. Juni 2005
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this title as an audio book. I found it very soothing, almost meditative, to listen to. Eckhart Tolle gives life a new perspective and helps you find a little mental peace in this crazy, fast-paced world. I would recommend this to anyone who is open to exploring their own mind and those who are losing sleep beacuse of never-ending thought cycles.
I am not sure how reading the book might compare. For me a huge part of the meditative quality resulted from listening to the words as he speaks with my eyes closed. Therefore I suggest purchasing the audio book.
This is the first title of Eckhart Tolle that I purchased, but I am already a huge fan!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An awsome book that gets you thinking 31. Mai 2004
Von gizmalley
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book made a change in my life. I really have trouble reading non-fiction. But the author's language is so clear and easy to understand, and everything he writes is so important, that I finished it easily. Every sentence makes you think about your own life. The book helps you to stop living in the past or future and to realize that you are right here right now. And that is all you need. Unfortunately, though, it is quite difficult for the beginner to actually stay in the here and now, which the author sometimes doesn't seem to realize. He seems to assume that all you need to do is know this, and everthing will be fine. Still, reading this book made me understand myself and what goes on in my life so much, that I will definetely read it again!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Which one to buy? 14. April 2004
Von AfroAmericanHeritage - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Since the content of Tolle's books has been covered well elsewhere, I'd like to address the person new to Tolle and wondering where to begin.
In my personal experience, if I could only afford to purchase one book, I'd start with PRACTICING THE POWER OF NOW. I feel that it essentially restates the material found in the original POWER OF NOW but in a format I found easier to digest. I don't see much point in owning both books (which I currently do.)
If you connect with PRACTICING and want more, then I'd recommend the audio book/retreat Realizing the Power of Now: An In-Depth Retreat With Eckhart Tolle. (It's less than $10 if you purchase the audio file from Audible.) I'm only half way through listening yet I constantly find myself thinking "Ah...now I understand what he meant." It truly is an excellent supplement.
There is one more Tolle book here, STILLNESS SPEAKS. I borrowed this from the library. It's basically just out-takes from the other books, sort of a quotable quotes book that restates things in a nutshell. It would make a nice gift to a Tolle fan, but again, doesn't offer anything more than the other books. I suppose my message is: everything you need to know is in the original POWER OF NOW, stated perhaps more clearly in PRACTICING and excerpted in STILLNESS but supported well in audio format by the retreat CD.
I find Tolle's basic message very powerful, enlightening and simple. As he himself constantly repeats, he's not saying anything new...be here now. But he explains it in a way which finally connects the dots for me. Unfortunately, this simple message seems to be getting constantly repackaged and I hope it doesn't turn into a "Chicken Soup for the Enlightened Soul" series. (I should probably go make sure that's not the title of an actual book! <g>)

5.0 von 5 Sternen The detractors didn't read the book title 6. August 2005
Von Dave Millman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Please read the title of this book before buying this book. The title is, "Practicing the Power of Now: Essential Teachings, Meditations, and Exercises from The Power of Now"

What you should take away from this title, and what the detractors missed, is those last five words, "from The Power of Now".

What this means is, this book is a condensed extract from the original masterwork. It's also quite well done. There are some original exercises, which cut straight to the key point, which is how to achieve "presence."

Although I own the original masterwork, I refer to this book more often. It's a great workbook, lunch reader, and meditation guide.

Go ahead, read part of the book to see it's power for yourself. Search for the word "myriad", which appears on the first page of the first chapter, and read a few pages. If you like what you read, make your own decision.

P.S. Another way to appreciate the Power of Now is to listen to the audio CD or the download version from Audible.com. Well worth every penny. And don't worry-you are not about to be sucked into an expensive series of seminars or anything else-Ekhart Tolle's only products are a few books. I recommend you listen to the audio version, because as others have said, there's a very spiritual aspect to Eckhart's voice, but all you really need is the original "The Power of Now" or this book, "Practicing the Power of Now."

5.0 von 5 Sternen LIVING IN THE MOMENT! 5. Oktober 2001
Von Sandra D. Peters - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book makes an excellent companion to "The Power of Now." The exercises found among these pages causes one to do some deep soul searching to determine what is important in life and what is truly insignificant. Even if you have not read Eckhart Tolle's "The Power of Now", which I strongly recommend readers do, this thought-provoking workbook can be used as a stand-alone book.
Tolle has a way of giving meaning to life by using exercises, meditations and essential teachings (many based on Buddhist philosophies) to bring peace, balance and harmony into our lives. The goal is to be able to bring about and sustain an enlightened state of consciousness in our daily lives. Tolle has a way of making the reader do some deep soul searching and reveal many truths about themselves that they might not otherwise do. In essence, the book causes one to "lighten the load" and follow a path of peace and harmony. This is truly a spiritual journey to a more enriched and meaningful life. The book is highly recommended and highly deserving of a five-star plus rating.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent for Quick Reference 30. Juli 2003
Von Texas Rose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is basically part three of Tolle's first book, The Power of Now. It is an easy reference to the basic "how to" stuff we need every day. It is small, easy to carry around in a purse or backpack, tuck into a desk drawer etc. I would recommend you first read The Power of Now and then go to this book. Others have gone straight to Practicing without the first book, and I think they are missing something in the overall philosophy.
Overall, and excellent resource and well worth buying when you want to get right to the heart of his philosophy.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Better named: Randomly Abridged Power of Now 23. Oktober 2001
Von A common man - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is about packaging a poorly abridged version of a truly great spiritual guide. I am not a reader of "spiritual" guides but found the original "Power of Now" to be a deep, rich, and incredibly clear book of a Truth about life that nothing in me can refute. It has become a truly important experience for me - life changing. I have purchased many copies for friends and they in turn have done the same.
This book "Practicing the Power of Now" is a watered down version of the original and in my reading of it, much less powerful. I have read the original twice and it remains strong for me, but this book is very, very abridged, strangely formatted, and does not feel to contain the essence of the original. The words that are in it are EXACTLY the same as those in the original and although I am sure there are exceptions, I confirmed this by choosing four pages at random and then found the text in the original. Much is left out and the formatting is distracting.
Tolle and the publishers can be very, very proud of the original, but frankly, they should be deeply ashamed of this book. Although there is a need for a book that is to be used as a tool for practice by readers of the first, this book is most certainly not it.
I will be seeking a refund and I hope that others do as well.
