Book Club: Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth

A NEW EARTH – Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

“In A New Earth Eckhart shows how transcending our ego-based state of consciousness is not only essential to personal happiness, but also the key to ending conflict and suffering throughout the world.”

This is the blurb about this book from the author. I’ll give it to you straight. My father gave me this book and so i felt compelled to read it, after all, it was a present. So i begrudging read through the first 30 pages and thought that it was all just common sense wrapped up in neat little bite size chapters. However, the more i read the more i enjoyed reading it. Eckhart’s writing, although complicated, flows well. The way he breaks down his psychological terms is extremely well done.

Spoiler Alert:

He has these five main themes, ego, pain body, inner purpose, outer purpose and living in the now. Each one of his terms are, as mentioned above, are detailed and to the point.

Over all Score: 10
