Stillness Speaks: Whispers of Now

Front Cover
Hachette Australia, 2011 - Spiritual life - 130 pages
Eckhart Tolle's writings on the power of living in the moment have fast become the most sought-after modern classic on spiritual enlightenment. Now, in this new, life-transforming book, Tolle illuminates the fundamental elements of his teachings, as we are invited to contemplate the spiritual truths that come through embracing silence and stillness.
STILLNESS SPEAKS is a collection of 200 concise and beautifully illuminating entries, arranged into twelve reflective themes. Each entry can stand as its own teaching or may be read as part of the fluid sequence of its theme. In their totality, the entries provide a road map out of human suffering.
When we are no longer limited by our thinking mind, suffering and pain disappear and we are able to move towards a fuller understanding of our relationships, of nature, and of the profound wisdom that is to be found in stillness.
