A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose

By Nora Caterino

Today's world is simply insane. Eckhart Tolle has written this hardcover book for those of us who have to live in this insane world but are seeking a new and better way to live. While so much of the world is in constant turmoil, those of us who are on a spiritual quest will truly appreciate Tolle's informative work in A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose.

The problems with today's world and the fast pace with which we all live can not be resolve through thought alone. The lucidity needed to find peace within ourselves and contribute to a New Earth is within ourselves but can only be found through stillness and living in the "now", in the present moment. It is not that we do not have within us what we need to create a New Earth; that is already there. Tolle's book simply makes us realize that we have to access this powerful tool within ourselves in order to live a better life and share that life with others. If we humans do not change the way we live, extinction will come for us, just as it did for the dinosaurs.

Tolle expresses that we must all take responsibility for our own consciousness. Each day, there are many opportunities to live in the 'now' which we either choose to use well or disregard. We too often resent the activities we must do such as washing dishes when that is really an opportunity to enjoy the feeling of hot water, to take what is unclean and make it clean as new. Each moment can be filled with bliss if we only focus on joy instead of seeking the negative.

The concept of the New Earth involves the fact that the human species is evolving toward the next level. Then, awareness of the unmanifested or unseen and ego will be balanced and the insanity we experience each day will disappear. This, in Tolle's view, is the purpose of our lives – moving toward that New Earth.

Having been released on December 16, 2005, this book is currently available in hardcover, audio CD and large print. A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose by Eckhart Tolle is a wonderful read and you will totally enjoy the enlightenment provided by this book.
