The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle, explores the theme of  the main cause of unhappiness and lack of fulfillment for most people is a lack of presence in their moment-to-moment experience.


It is a spiritual self-help guide to help us discover our true Being, release our pain and find deep inner peace. When we are intensely present in the Now, we respond from deep consciousness and flow with ease and joy in life.

Famous Quotes:

“Where there is anger, there is always pain underneath.”

“Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within.”

“It seems that most people need to experience a great deal of suffering before they will relinquish resistance and accept – before they will forgive.”

“You also realize that all the things that truly matter – beauty, love, creativity, joy, and inner peace – arise from beyond the mind.”

“Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be.”

“Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.”

“Power over others is weakness disguised as strength. True power is within, and it is available to you now.”

“Nothing out there will ever satisfy you except temporarily and superficially, but you may need to experience many disillusionments before you realize that truth.”

“Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally.”

“You find God the moment you realize that you don’t need to seek God.”

“Emotion arises at the place where mind and body meet. It is the body’s reaction to your mind — or you might say, a reflection of your mind in the body.”

“Love, joy, and peace cannot flourish until you have freed yourself from mind dominance.”

“‘Everything is shown up by being exposed to the light, and whatever is exposed to the light itself becomes light.’”
