If you find it difficult to stay in the present moment, this is the book that can take you into an everyday experience of inner stillness
This isn’t a book to be read from cover to cover, then put away. It’s a book to pick up frequently—to live with.
In Stillness Speaks, the author of The Power of Now and A New Earth illumines the fundamental elements of his teaching, addressing the needs of the modern seeker by drawing from the heart of all spiritual traditions.
At the core of the book is what the author calls "the state of presence," a living in the "now" that’s both intensely inspirational and practical. When you live in the now, the pressures of thinking about the future, dwelling on the past, and worrying about what’s happening in your life disappear. Fear and frustration also vanish. You begin to enjoy simply "being," living your life in peace and joy with great fulfillment. Stillness Speaks takes the form of 200 individual entries, organized into 10 topic clusters, each entry concise and complete in itself. Read together, or dwelt with individually, they take on transformative power.
“True intelligence operates silently. Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found.” - Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks
