A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose by Eckhart Tolle


If you have already read Eckhart Tolle's previous book, The Power of Now, you will be equally intrigued as you read the wisdom found in, "A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose." There is a simplicity in this book that is refreshing, and although much of the content shared in this book is a restatement and amplification of his previous work, the words instill a deep desire to move beyond normal day-to-day automatic existence.

Tolle's A New Earth describes how humanity is at a dire place and that something must awaken in us individually and as a whole to create a more caring and loving world. We must move beyond our egoic based consciousness and take an inner leap toward deep self-discovery and awareness, while shifting our perceptions into a whole new level of conscious understanding. Tolle guides us to understand the experience of embracing who we truly are, which is a far greater picture than many of us have cared to imagine or be thus far. As we do, we can live much richer, freer, and happier lives. We can become a community of conscious beings who understand our inner connectivity.

The beauty of this book, A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle is how he very gently, and in very practical terms, leads us into this new consciousness. We are given insight into how we might enjoy life, and at the same time be able to assist a shift in perception, which may, in time, ripple throughout the rest of the planet's population.
