Why should you read Stillness Speaks by Eckhart Tolle?

In today’s busy lifestyles, it seems that we all have many dreams that we shoot high to achieve. However, all this rushing from place to place, from task to task, has left us with not a single moment to spare for the time that matters – the now. Furthermore, it seems like we are used to be constantly rushing, never stopping, not even for a second. We have forgotten how to stay still, and who we are beyond the endless tasks that we mechanically take care of every day.

These issues, have left us disconnected from who we truly are, they have made us forget our very essence. In his genius book, Tolle discusses these issues, and how to resolve them. He pushes you in a new, different direction, somewhere you don’t spend too much time – towards yourself.

You discover that a “bored person” is not who you are. Boredom is simply a conditioned energy movement within you. Neither are you an angry, sad, or fearful person. Boredom, anger, sadness, or fear are not “yours,” not personal. They are conditions of the human mind. They come and go.

Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks

Short, simple and filled with wisdom, it will leave you with a different perception of your life and the world. We absolutely love all of his books, but this small treasure will keep you re-reading it over and over again, and every time you will come out with some new wisdom out of it. Definitely, a must read!

Your unhappiness ultimately arises not from the circumstances of your life but from the conditioning of your mind.
