Description

This long-awaited second book by renowned spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle goes deeper into the teachings so eloquently and clearly expressed in his first book, The Power of Now.

These short, clear entries are organized into ten topic clusters ranging from "Stillness and Silence" and "Beyond the Thinking Mind" to "Relationships" and "Suffering and the End of Suffering." Whether listened to individually or in topic clusters, these entries take on a rare transformative power.

While its message is broad and profound, Stillness Speaks is also highly practical. Eckhart Tolle shows us how to be with another in a relationship that can contain and weather all things, how to sit with a dying person, where to find wisdom, how to free ourselves of guilt, and how to control our constant stream of thoughts. Underneath the words, and in the spaces between them, we find the power of stillness, a vibrantly alive state existing only in the present moment. Stillness Speaks draws upon the essence of all spiritual traditions, offering a message that is both ancient and contemporary, filled with timely and powerful wisdom.

Brilliant

Echart Tolle came into my life purely by accident when I ordered a Netflix Video series called Flowering of the Human Conscience by Eckhart Tolle whom I had never heard of. I was expecting something very different. I am beginning to wonder if there was some other force working to help put me on the right track, because I would not have had any reason to rent this DVD disc series. I had only been renting workout videos for the past several weeks. When I stuck it in the DVD player, I saw a simple looking man stepped onto the stage and started talking. My first thought was, oh lord, what the heck did I get myself into here, but after 5 minutes I was captivated, and was blown away by the simple yet powerful message. I was not looking for spiritual direction, but got it non-the-less and in a very enlightening way. I have to date purchased 4 of his audio books, and my life has been changed forever in a gloriously calming way. I am eternally grateful for this chance meeting with Mr. Tolle,and his life-changing message about the meaning of life.

Number TWO...

Read "The Power of Now" first and this book second. If you liked TPN you will love this. It is full of great meditative insites that will help you have inner peace and enjoy the path to enlitenment. Good to pause after the verses in order to fully take in the teachings.

Very well done - Glad they had this in audio

I probably would not have had time to read this book but audio makes it so easy now to be exposed to different material. Very well done with great insight. Really had me thinking.

My Favorite

"Not a book to be read from cover to cover, but to be pondered, and read again and again" Loosely a quote from the book and so true. I never tire of this book.

Be still and know that I am God

This book is filled with great wisdom about what occurs when we allow stillness to speak. I have not listened to the entire book because I have read practicing the now twice and bought both books at the same time, I am leaning more towards the practicing but only because it is helping me to rid myself of ego and pain body and living the power of now! My husband is particulary happy about this change!

A Little book on Stillness

This is my second Echart Tolle Book, and third listening to his unpretentious voice speaking out simple truths we know, but we used to forget...

"Stillness speaks" is indeed short, as compared to "The Power of Now". Yet it is good, concise summary of Tolle ideas. In some sense it is about one idea, that is elaborated deeply in both of his books. This simple idea can be expressed in saying: "We are not our minds". Tolle rediscovers truths known to almost all great meditative traditions of all religions, to tell, in simple words, that beyond and below our discursive and noisy stream of thought, there IS certain realm, that exists, but which existence is of different dimension than the existence of forms in this world.

Yet this simple idea is fruitful and deep. Tolle elaborates on it, and the consequence are far reaching, from appreciation of meditative practice, through betterment of our relations, to the overcoming of suffering and death.

As I stressed in my two previous reviews, the true value of Tolle is in his simple language, modest approach to difficult problems and intellectual honesty. So don't expect here cryptic expression of some mysterious truths. This book is about things of common life and common experience - that are, as it often happens, concealed by our talkative and blusterous culture.

As I said before, I do not quite agree with Tolle's approach to past: "Past and future are thought forms, mental abstractions. The past can only be remembered Now". While his view is reasonable, the negation of the existence of Past, the frozen world of our good and bad choices, is to me, unnecessary....

Stillness Speaks

Eric's voice and use of silence is piercing in truth, and awaken parts of me that have been waiting to be spoken to. I reconized my true identity as Soul, eternal. I could not help but feel good, for he showed me how to have compassion for myself, allowing my natural spiritual state to come to be, free!

In a certain sense, this is the BEST book Eckhart

This is a very special book that might best apply to those who are already fairly familiar with Eckhart's teachings. But in that sense, it is something QUALITATIVELY DIFFERENT from the Power of Now or the New Earth. Stillness Speaks is more akin to the Tao Te Ching. Let me elaborate.

I've read the Power of Now, the New Earth and watched several videos of Eckhart's talks. Although they convey the same message, they do it very differently, so it can well be that, depending on where you are at in your life, you cannot yet comprehend Eckhart's talks and other books, because they appear "mumbo-jumbo" to you. :)

If you are still at the very beginning of the awakening process, I think The Power of Now and/or the New Earth are the books where you should begin. However, if you are already fairly awakened (that is to say, you don't need any more lenghty, conceptual explanations on the workings of the ego, pain-body, awareness, etc.) you might find that these two books are quite a bit "too elaborative." And that's perfectly fine, because most people encounter Eckhart's teachings in a stage in that they are still identified with their mind, so these books first and foremost speak to your mind.

But in an already awakaned state, when reading these books, say, for the third or fourth time, you might cath yourself thinking: "OK, I already know and understand all these things on the conceptual level. Could you now please say more with less words?”
And that is exactly what Stillness Speaks does. It is a wonderful collection of wisdom-nuggets that are sometimes only a few sentences long but, because of that, extremely powerful. And even more: this is a book that the audiobook (Audible) format suits BEST! I also listened to The Power of Now and the New Earth audiobook, but in Stillness Speaks Eckhart talks much more slowly and operates with longer SILENCES between sentences.

When I first „listened” to this gap after a sentence, suddenly I felt something incomprehensible. The words affected my state of consciousness much more with these breaks than they could have if they followed each other in an uninterrupted way. I often even paused the listening voluntarily and just sat / walked in silence for minutes before I continued with the next sentence.

I have the feeling that The Power of Now and the New Earth are good informative books on spirituality but after having read them several times, one can "get" nothing more out of them. Stilness Speaks, on the other hand, is more like the Tao Te Ching. You can open it ANYWHERE, read / listen to it for even just a few minutes, then carry on with your life with heightened awareness. Almost like a meditation. Wonderful. And in THIS particular sense I can truly say that it is Eckhart's best book.

Seelen-Frieden

Ich höre Eckhart Tolle abends im Bett um mein Nervenkostüm zu beruhigen und für meinen Seelen-Frieden . . . und es klappt immer, seit Jahren: Ich schlafe glücklich und versöhnt mit der Welt ein.
Auch mit diesem Hörbuch. Hin und wieder habe ich wohl gedacht, das E. Tolle öfter mal einfach nur "vorliest" als sonst, aber auch das tut dem Werk keinen großen Abbruch.
Die Stille-Pausen, die das Hörbuch durchziehen, irritierten mich nur anfangs . . . bis sie zu sprechen begannen . . .

Heilung meines Geistes

Ich habe es nun schon mehrfach gehört - ist ja auch nicht lang. Genau wie eingangs beschrieben, eignen sich die Kapitel als Hinweisschilder, die in den Frieden und die Kraft und die Tiefe wachen, stillen, reinen Bewusstseins führen. Ich bin sehr dankbar für dieses – gemessen an der Zahl der Worte – kleine Buch.
