'A New Earth' by Eckhart Tolle

‘If you find this book incomprehensible or meaningless, it has not yet happened to you. If something within you responds to it, however, if you somehow recognize the truth in it, it means the process of awakening has begun.’

Eckhart Tolle - ‘A New Earth’

We are coming nearer to the end of ‘A New Earth’. It is my hope that this book has been able to trigger an awareness of how you function in this world and the choices that are available to you. Over the next few weeks we will decide what we would like to read next, and I will create a poll so that we can vote for our next book.

The truth of Tolle’s concepts cannot be told to someone. Everyone needs to discover this awakening on their own and in their own time. The only way to share this idea is through guidance and direction backed with the hope that it will click into place for the seeker.

I hope that by sharing this book I have been able to share some ideas that have changed my life and my perception of it. When it does click into place, it is so exciting that you will want to share it with everyone. I have however found that by shouting it from the mountain tops does not work. When it is the right time, the awakening will begin. So do not be disappointed if others are not ready to share your insights, instead hope that one day they will, and lead by example.

Remember to take time to focus on the present moment. We are here to experience a world that stimulates our five senses. Enjoy it! And enjoy it from the perspective of your true self, the observer.

When you are wondering what your purpose is, focus on what you are doing at that moment and make that your purpose. It is incredibly empowering to free yourself from the past and the future for a time.

Make time to be with yourself. Understand yourself. Let go and enjoy the ride! Everything is as it is, and when you think it is not as it should be, then accept the challenge and allow your spirit to grow. In all conflicts there is a calling to become a stronger and more loving you.

Remember, there are 2 ways to act – in love or in fear. It is really that simple. And when you consciously choose to practice working from a place of love, you will soon enjoy the peace that is to be found in Tolle’s description of ‘A New Earth’.

Happy Manifesting!

Hi Julieanne,

Thanks for the summary. You have done a great job of sharing the book with the various summaries you've posted. I have read the book in the past and still so much enjoyed reading your posts.

Looking forward to the next book!

Thanks again, for a well done job, and yes...There is only love or fear.

Talk soon.

This is one of my favorite books of all time and I just love reading your take on it. I reread parts of the book whenever I need a boost. I'm thinking of rereading it all the way through. Can't wait to see what your next book here will be :)

Hi Dori!

I have also really enjoyed this book and will be checking back for a boost. The poll will be up next week so looking forward to that.

Have a great weekend!
