The Power of Now is the book by by Eckhart Tolle that made a great difference to me for my meditation practice.
When I first read it in 2009, I experienced a paradigm shift as I realised two simple previously overlooked concepts:
- For each of us, our present moment is all there is
- I am not my thoughts
The book also contains guidance on mindfulness meditation and a number of concepts that result from these core concepts.
These simple realisations sent me on a journey of self-inquiry that has subsequently transformed my experience and my life.
Not everyone is ready for the concepts contained within The Power of Now but either way it is a classic and well worth the read.
