Eckhart Tolle, one of the better known teachers who teaches why living in the present moment is so important and how most of our problems originate from excessive thinking and our identification with thoughts. We are dealing too much with our past and future – with conditions that do not exist. The only moment that is real, is the present moment. If we could observe our thoughts nonjudgmentally and not identifying with them, our suffering would mostly fade away.
Eckhart Tolle in the book – which is an inspiration for millions around the world – reveals, how we can achieve freedom and joy with living a life in the present moment and how we can overcome ego consciousness with that, which brings in our lives various dysfunctions such as anger, jealousy and unhappiness.
