I’m taking the day off. Go read The Power of Now. Seriously. Now.
I know how this will sound to some people, because I was once one of “those people”, but I can’t think of any book more important. This might offend some of my friends, but Tolle’s gift to the world lies in his ability to show how religion (he references Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism) is aligned with psychology and physical sciences like physics and chemistry; how we’re all connected. He shows us how we tend to create our own hell and how to break free of it.
I am not “enlightened”, this is more a matter of journey than destination, but I’ve seen little glimpses. It has worked for me, and it can work for you.
Are you still reading this? Go get the book!
