A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose by Eckhart Tolle

 

In A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose, Eckhart Tolle simply and beautifully employs spiritual parables from many traditions to distill and illuminate the One truth to which they point: God in me; me in God. Form (the material world) is interpenetrated by nothingness (space, quantum possibilities, consciousness, spirit, God). If so many cultures can agree that we, as form, are permeated with spirit, why do we experience so much separation and suffering?

Tolle states that suffering is created when the ego identifies completely with form:

1. Physical Forms: personal, socio and spiritual conditioning from the past
(such as gender, social status and race),

2. Feeling Forms: accumulated emotional pain, and

3. Thought Forms: beliefs, expectations and judgments.

In a weird way, I regret ever having read this book because it opened my eyes so greatly to the hidden egocentric motivation behind every human thought and action that I can’t stop seeing the underlying ego behind everything, and everyone, I encounter.
