The Power of Now by Ekhart Tolle
‘The Power of Now’ by Ekhart Tolle, is the best-selling spiritual guide that invites you to look inward at the world around you.
Ekhart Tolle’s message is simple: living in the now is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment. And while this message may not seem stunningly original or fresh, Tolle’s clear writing, supportive voice and enthusiasm make this an excellent manual for anyone who’s ever wondered what exactly “living in the now” means. Foremost, Tolle is a world-class teacher, able to explain complicated concepts in concrete language. More importantly, within a chapter of reading this book, readers are already holding the world in a different container–more conscious of how thoughts and emotions get in the way of their ability to live in genuine peace and happiness.
The book focuses on one major subject: how to be consciously present in the moment and what that can do for you in your everyday life. You’ll find some exercises and examples as you go that can help you understand the concepts more and put them into practice.
Every book club meet we discuss each chapter of the book ‘The Power of Now’ and self reflect as it unfolds different aspects of ourselves to us. In this book club, every meet requires us to have read the chapter of discussion for that day and connect with individuals about what our lives mean to us.
Some chapter discussions maybe as follows:
The chapter “You Are Not Your Mind”, is about what being present means, how you can reach that state, and how it will help you be more aware of the things you do and why you do them.
The chapter “Consciousness – The Way Out of Pain”, is about how personal pain and suffering are created in the mind by identifying yourself with the past or longing for the future, instead of just being in the moment.
The chapter “Moving Deeply Into the Now”, is about not identifying yourself with your problems (your “ego”). When you do that, you’ll never be rid of them, because then the loss of problems will mean the loss of self.
The chapter “The Inner Body”, talks about how to use your body as way to keep you present in the moment, and how to truly listen to someone else without being in your own head.
The chapter “Beyond Happiness and Unhappiness There Is Peace,” you realize that you can feel peace without feeling happiness, and that the source of drama in your life can be traced back to the lack of acceptance.
Join us for this book club, to connect with others, discuss and grow through The Power of Now.
