A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose Reviews
I loved the way the 'A New Earth' brings light to how we can get past our ego-based conciousness to really experience happiness. One of my favorite quotes was on page 134, "Although the body is very intelligent, it cannot tell the difference between an actual situation and a thought. It reacts to every thought as if it were a reality..." Another favorite is on pg. 141, "Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now; and if the past cannot prevent you from being pr ...more
Wow. This is a life changing book. My only criticism is that Tolle is a theorist and so doesn't give many applicable examples of how to use the theories in real life. This I've had to do on my own. But this book is well worth the read. Here's the rub: you can read it and do nothing or you can read it and try to alter your way of thinking. When will someone write a book that makes people's lives change that doesn't take work??? :)
أعتقد انه كتاب رائع من ذلك النوع الذي ترجع له من فترة لفترة وتستعيد توازنك وتعيد النظر في مواقفك تجاه ما يمر بك في حياتك وتراقب مشاعرك وتفكيرك وأتمنى من كل انسان أيا كانت معتقداته أن يقرأه ويستفيد منه.
وحتى أولئك الساخرين من كل كتب تطوير الذات (والذين قد يغريهم عنوان الكتاب بالسخرية منه) جربوا والقوا نظرة مع محاولة فهم المقصود والاستفادة وليس مجرد التصيد لمثل هذه الكتب.
وأكرر ان الترجمة جميلة جدا صادرة من شخص يقدر ما يقرأ على خلاف ما نراه من مترجمي ودور نشر كتب تطوير الذات. مثلا كلمة "يتماهى" المت ...more
Practically: spot-on treatment of the ego as problem source. Lots of advice that would be beneficial for most people.
Philosophically: not rigorous, despite an implicit claim to be the next step following the path from Descartes through Sartre. Equivocal vocabulary lets him subtly draw questionable logical connections. Some metaphysical foundations are implicitly assumed. Notably missing is any treatment of ethics, or much in the way of implications at all. All in all, I am probably giving him to ...more
Okay so I had high expectations for this book. Normally I don't really go for Oprah selections but I heard so many great things about it plus I am totally into new agey type things, I thought it would be right up my alley.
My problem with this book was twofold. First, a lot of the ideas weren't new to me. Living in the present (you are not walking across the room to get a book, you are walking across the room), not letting your ego attach itself to things (that is not "my car" or "my house"), etc ...more
شعـــــــــــــاع من روح الكون يغزو تفاصيلــــــــي في هذا الكتاب ...
Initially, I had trouble getting into the book. In my mind, the first couple dozen pages seemed written in pig latin. I put the book down for a few days and upon resuming, gems as noted below started jumping off the pages.
"When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world". ~Eckhart Tolle

What is so powerful about this book is not that there is much new material here. We’ve all heard about how the ego keeps us chained to our judgements, fears, and desires. The difference is in how the author explains his points. Finally, we understand! Wouldn’t you love it if all the stuff you’ve read about enlightenment suddenly became crystal clear? (I see you all nodding!) This is it.
Throughout the entire book, he reiterates the same points. He does not offer ‘instructions’. Here’s a great exa ...more
