Oneness with All Life
In the introduction Eckhart Tolle
states he selected passages from the original
book that are particularly suitable for inspirational
or meditative reading.
He does not recommend that you read
it from cover to cover, rather to read a page
or at the most a chapter at a time, stopping at
passages that elicit an inner response, letting
the words sink in and sense the truth to which
All Life is a beautifully bound book filled with
inspirational selections from Eckhart Tolle's
bestseller - A New Earth. In selecting the passages,
Eckhart has stayed clear of the ego and pain body.
The Mandala of Being
Richard Moss states that this book
has been a true labour of love for him.
In the introduction he describes
it as the culmination and distillation of what
he has learned in thirty years of teaching about
being alive no matter what the circumstances.
He goes on to say that early in
his career he realised that it was relatively
easy to bring people to a state of radical aliveness
where the mind is silent, the body is filled with
presence and a new enthusiasm for living is born.
He then realised the secret was
about creating activities in which the body and
mind are in the same place - in the Now.
Using a simple mandala, he illustrates
the four places we go when we feel threatened,
uncomfortable, or aren't fully centred or grounded
in the present moment.
Like a trail of pebbles left behind
on a hike, it helps trace the path back to the
authentic self. He offers an always-available
compass that directs you back to your true self,
and into the magic of the present moment.
Letting Go - a Little
Bit at a Time
The introduction to this gift book
is a story about a traveller who feels incomplete
despite a number of achievements.
As he wanders around a bazaar his
mind is filled with torment as he tries to work
out the 'secret' to feeling complete.
He comes across an artist who shares
a pearl of wisdom with him "
how all great things are achieved: a consistent
attention coupled with persistent effort - a little
bit at a time - until the right time comes when
that work is rewarded. Nothing can stand in the
way of what must be released."
The book is perennial calendar featuring
365 life-changing insights into the art of letting
go, and includes 100 inspiring photos of Mother
The End of Your World
In his introduction Adyashanti states
that this book has come about because of the growing
need for direction on the spiritual path. "Information
about life after awakening is usually not made
public, it's most often shared only between teachers
and their students", he says
He describes the "I got it/I
lost it" phenomenon that perplexes so many
That fluctuation between what he
describes as 'non-abiding' awakening and the ultimate
With straight talk and insight he
points out the pitfalls that 'un-enlighten' us
along the journey.
These pitfalls include the ego,
the illusion of superiority and the danger of
becoming drunk on emptiness.
He teachers that "full awakening
comes when you sincerely look at yourself, deeper
than you've imagines and question everything."
Adyanshanti began teaching in 1996
after a series of transformational spiritual awakenings,
at the request of his Zen teacher with whom he
had been studying for fourteen years.
