Eckhart Tolle is one of today's most inspiring spiritual teachers.
In The Power of Now" he describes his transition into enlightenment.
Tolle used ten years to understand this own transformation,
during which time he evolved a philosophy that has parallels
in Buddhism, relaxation techniques, and meditation theory but is very practical.
He help people how to recognize themselves
and how to have a pain-free existence by living fully in the present.
Accessing the deepest self, the true self, can be learned, he says,
by freeing ourselves the unreasonable demands of the mind
and living present, fully, and intensely, in the Moment.
