The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

When Ekharte Tolle was in his twenties, he lived in a state of almost continuous anxiety interspersed with periods of suicidal depression. One night, not long after his twenty-ninth birthday, his life changed forever. He questioned the voice in his head, and suddenly, there was no more fear. Only deep peace and bliss. This summary aims to teach you to reach the same enlightenment.

You Are Not Your Mind

Many people look outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfilment, for validation, security, or love. Instead, they must realize that they have a treasure within that not only includes all of those things but is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.

Everyone has a voice inside your head, but the good news is that you can free yourself from your mind. Start by listening to the voice as often as possible. When you listen to a thought, you are aware not only of the thought but also of yourself as the witness of the thought. The most vital step on your journey toward enlightenment is to learn to disidentify from your mind.

In the enlightened state, you still use your thinking mind, but mostly for practical purposes. You are free of involuntary internal dialogue and there is inner stillness. You can watch emotions the same way that you watch thoughts. Focus your attention within and feel the energy of the emotion. There are two levels to your pain: the pain that you create now, and the pain from the past that still lives on in your mind and body. You can cease to create pain in the present and dissolve past pain.
