Le Pouvoir du Moment Présent

I just finished reading Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now (but in French). I excerp a review from wie.org:

Using a question and answer format throughout the book, Tolle weaves his words together like a carefully constructed net designed to catch and constrain all the objections of the mind and ego to the freedom of being he is pointing to.

His basic message is simple: disconnect from the thinking mind, shift your attention from “mind to Being, from time to Presence.” Indeed, time is the enemy in Tolle’s teaching, and the mind is the enemy’s tool. We must reject them both, abandoning our psychological attachment to the past and future, realizing that a mind-identified condition is “a form of insanity.”

“Be so utterly, so completely present,” Tolle tells us, “that no problem, no suffering, nothing that is not who you are in your essence, can survive in you. In the Now, in the absence of time, all your problems dissolve. Suffering needs time; it cannot survive in the Now.”
