A New Earth

Quotes

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”

“Don't let a mad world tell you that success is anything other than a successful present moment.”

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.”

“Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won't die. You will come to life. And don't be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it's their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don't be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”

“Life is the dancer and you are the dance.”

“Anything that you resent and strongly react to in another is also in you.”

“What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.”

“You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge.”

“To recognize one's own insanity is, of course, the arising of sanity, the beginning of healing and transcendence.”

“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.”

Entertainment Value: 6/10

Life Value: 10/10

This Book is For: This book is the perfect starting point for anyone interested in cultivating greater presence, peace of mind, and deeper sense of spiritual grounding.  It’s one of the first books I recommend to people starting on the path.

Whereas I felt like Eckhart Tolle’s most famous book The Power of Now was rather semantically dense and a bit repetitive, this book reads like a cool breeze on a hot day. He elegantly elucidates both the value proposition and the prescriptive strategies for cultivating greater presence of mind and emotional mastery.

In my opinion this book is a non-negotiable read for everyone. It should be offered in schools, it should be gifted to friends and family, it should be ubiquitous. There is no possible way you finish this book without being a better person on the other side. Do it!
