If you read only one book this year, make it "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle. Read it until you "get" it. Getting it is not understanding it with the mind. It means being able to be totally in the Now and experiencing total inner peace and joy. (Joy comes from within - don't confuse it with pleasure). It means the end of suffering while on earth. The more you are someone who has lived in your mind (and in the past and future) the more this book, if you practice it, can save your life. While reading it, I was able to relate to living in the Now, not always mind you. I am not there yet. But more and more each day and I could relate to the being one with the universe, in total peace. Being in the Now connects you to the essence of who you are. I cannot do justice to the book. Get it for yourself and read it until you get it.
