I just bought this book & love it so far. It has a lot of great insight & confirms a lot of what I have been learning lately. I went & bought it after seeing it on Oprah! What do you think so far? Are you going to participate in the online class they are offering? I signed up and hope to have time to participate!

I signed up for the class and I'm waiting for my book to come from Amazon.com. I am glad you got a copy so we can talk about it! Until then I want to try and share my notes from 'The Power of Now'. Watch Tolle's youtube videos here:

Thanks Molly! I am looking forward to checking out the videos. I had never heard of him before now.

We will have to chat about it once you get the book.

Hey Jamie, I am still waiting for my book. Can you tell me what you got out of it so far?

The book is WONDERFUl. It talks a lot about being in the now & being without ego. It talks about recognizing the ego & how the world would be better if we could be more aware or conscious of ourselves. I think must tie into the book Power of Now, but I have not read it.

I am reading it & marking it up on like every other page. It fits with all that I have been learning about & is a great book to read after I read a book called The Powerful Self by Steven Stosny.

I have not finished the book since I want to make sure I absorb all that is in it, so I am taking my time. I hope you get it soon & then we can discuss more!

I was wondering about this book so I'll look forward to hearing what you think as well. Sounds like a lot of people really like it though!

Oh cool, Eckhart Tolle. Yeah, I remember watching a few of his videos with you, and he knows what he's talking about - he's a very mellow guy.
