The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

Many people are haunted by memories and paralyzed by worries. But between the past and future, there is the present, where, as Eckhart Tolle argues, we were meant to stay, where life is truly happening. Here in the Now we find the light-hearted, joy-filled existence that so many are striving for, but few seem to find. Accepting each moment as it comes and all it contains, instead of fighting it or withdrawing from it, is the key. In The Power of Now, Tolle shows us the benefits of moving into the Now and the obstacles that hinder many from living mindful, fulfilling lives.
