Publisher's Summary

This long-awaited second book by renowned spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle goes deeper into the teachings so eloquently and clearly expressed in his first book, The Power of Now. These short, clear entries are organized into ten topic clusters ranging from "Stillness and Silence" and "Beyond the Thinking Mind" to "Relationships" and "Suffering and the End of Suffering." Whether listened to individually or in topic clusters, these entries take on a rare transformative power.
While its message is broad and profound, Stillness Speaks is also highly practical. Eckhart Tolle shows us how to be with another in a relationship that can contain and weather all things, how to sit with a dying person, where to find wisdom, how to free ourselves of guilt, and how to control our constant stream of thoughts. Underneath the words, and in the spaces between them, we find the power of stillness, a vibrantly alive state existing only in the present moment. Stillness Speaks draws upon the essence of all spiritual traditions, offering a message that is both ancient and contemporary, filled with timely and powerful wisdom.

Brilliant

Echart Tolle came into my life purely by accident when I ordered a Netflix Video series called Flowering of the Human Conscience by Eckhart Tolle whom I had never heard of. I was expecting something very different. I am beginning to wonder if there was some other force working to help put me on the right track, because I would not have had any reason to rent this DVD disc series. I had only been renting workout videos for the past several weeks. When I stuck it in the DVD player, I saw a simple looking man stepped onto the stage and started talking. My first thought was, oh lord, what the heck did I get myself into here, but after 5 minutes I was captivated, and was blown away by the simple yet powerful message. I was not looking for spiritual direction, but got it non-the-less and in a very enlightening way. I have to date purchased 4 of his audio books, and my life has been changed forever in a gloriously calming way. I am eternally grateful for this chance meeting with Mr. Tolle,and his life-changing message about the meaning of life.

Number TWO...

Read "The Power of Now" first and this book second. If you liked TPN you will love this. It is full of great meditative insites that will help you have inner peace and enjoy the path to enlitenment. Good to pause after the verses in order to fully take in the teachings.

The stillness speaks... literally

This book - I now realise - is why I joined audible. The coming together of Tolle's perfectly clear wisdom (the power of NOW), the miracle of mp3 and the pause button on my iPod to create a life-changing experience that I take everywhere with me at the moment.

The pace Tolle reads is perfect, especially precious being the long contemplative pauses he uses to allow profound things to settle and the ripples to spread outwards. He invites us to stop 'reading' regularly and take more time away from the book than with it - a strange invitation that makes perfect sense the longer you live with this teaching.

And that's why I'm in awe of this technology; a little solid state thing hanging round my neck; no moving parts and weighing almost nothing. Consuming almost no power; able to stop and let the learning take hold and restart at any time later - when the time is right.

Worth every penny of my entire year's audible subscription.

Meditative & Powerful

Although much shorter and suffused with such lengths of silence that one wonders what exactly has been said, I found this to be more powerful than Eckhart Tolle's first book (which itself was brilliant). His original 'The Power of Now' was marred by the inclusion of an alluring but nonetheless unfalsifiable Eastern metaphysics. Tolle -almost- does what he says in the introduction: he presents a message that one already knows deep within oneself. I trust the listener will be discerning enough to recognize when Tolle unwittingly stops being a spiritual teacher and takes on the role of religious preacher. Thankfully, in this, his second book, he is less of the latter and more of the former.

Deep

Amazing listen, just like all of his books. This one especially brought me many "aha" moments, and took me deeply into presence.
