Thank you, Taosaur. Indeed, I was listening to The Power of Now for information, not to be entertained. It is poetic--the words poetic mysticism come to mind. One could compare Eckhart Tolle's words to Kahlil Gibran's. Both enlightened beings, in my opinion. I had a hard time listening to his audiobook because of the obstacles within (psychological hindrances). You have to be in a certain frame of mind to listen--open-minded and willing.

The Power of Now isn't for everyone. It's for those who are seeking something beyond the superficial--nuggets of truth and pearls of wisdom.
