When you listen, you discover that something deeper is happening beyond the words being spoken. A field of alert stillness arises where before there was mental noise. You find yourself in what Eckhart calls a state of presence, and it can lead to a dramatic transformation in the way you live your life.
For those new to Eckhart's teachings, this is an ideal introduction. For those familiar with his work, be prepared for something fresh and extraordinary.

Light and fun
This is another excerpt from one of Eckhart Tolles talks, where he speaks extemporaneously to a group, rather than reading a book. If you've listened to other talks he's given (most notably Realizing The Power of Now), you know that he is usually in no hurry to share his insights. His speech is often remarkable in that there are often VERY long pauses between his words, so long that you occasionally begin to wonder if your MP3 player ran out of batteries. (I'm not criticizing this - after all, one of his main teachings is to listen to the silence between words - he just gives you lots of opportunity!)
This talk is very different. He comes across as animated, enthusiastic, and funny. He pokes fun of the mind on many occasions, so accurately it feels almost like he can tell what you are thinking. I laughed out loud several times in this delightful 2 hours. The topics he covered extended past those he brought up in the Power of Now, to include what common tricks the mind uses to pull us back out of the present, and how and why it is so important for us always to be right and others to be wrong. This talk seemed to have more immediate practical manifestations in my life than others that he has given. The topics he brought up here reminded me very much of a course I've taken called The Landmark Forum.
The Power of Now itself was the single most life-changing book I have ever read. This talk is a wonderful extension and expansion of the philosophy, but for those unfamiliar with Eckhart Tolle I wouldn't recommend starting with this before listening to The Power of Now.

One of My Favorites
This is one of my favorite audible downloads. I've listened to it several times. If you liked Eckhart Tolle's "The Power of Now" and his teaching, you will enjoy this recording. He is talking to the audience rather than reading a book. It is full of insights, practical examples, and humor. Eckhart Tolle's common-man personality comes through.

In gratitude to the part of us that calls itself Eckhart Tolle
This is pure Eckhart at his very best.
There is so much contained within this relatively short teaching that I know I shall come back to it again and again and again and again.
Money well spent.
I recommend this to anyone who has ears to listen.

Try it, you've got everything to lose 😉
Download, headphones on, press play, go for a walk. that's the advice I was given, it worked for me.
