Celebrating 20 years of The Power of Now

The international bestselling phenomenon that has inspired a generation

 

The Power of Now is the bestselling spiritual book of the past 20 years – selling over a million copies in the UK alone and translated into 33 languages. Despite publishing 20 years ago, sales continue to grow, with 2018 seeing its strongest sales yet with over 100,000 copies. This transformative sensation demonstrates how to live a healthier, happier, mindful life by living in the present moment and has captured the imaginations of a whole host of celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Annie Lennox, Gillian Anderson and Jeff Goldblum. The Power of Now is THE self-help book of our time.

To make the journey into The Power of Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Although the journey is challenging, author Eckhart Tolle offers simple language and a question and answer format to show us how to silence our thoughts and create a liberated life. Surrender to the present moment, where problems do not exist. It is here we find our joy, are able to embrace our true selves and discover that we are already complete and perfect.

To celebrate 20 years since its release, here are a few life lessons from the unbounded wisdom of Eckhart Tolle.

 

Lesson 1: Focus on the present. That’s all there is.

 

“Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now.”

 

Lesson 2: Surrender and say yes to life.

 

“Surrender to what ‘is.’ Say ‘yes’ to life—and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.”

 

Lesson 3: Sometimes you just need to let go.

 

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realise that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”
