eckhart tolle- a new earth-awakening to your life's purpose

Hello there and a very warm welcome to one and all,

Today it gives me great pleasure to offer to you Eckhart Tolle-A New Earth-A Review. A book that has like’The Power Of Now’ become a constant companion of mine. Saying that however it’s recently been hijacked by my beautiful daughter and because of it’s potential to change her life I am more than happy for her to have it.

Once again it is a book that I have read many times over and it will continue to influence me till the day I breathe no more. The book is Eckhart’s follow up to his phenomenal teachings in the New York Times bestseller list ‘The Power Of Now.’

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”

― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

eckhart tolle-a new earth-a review


The book has gone on to outsell ‘The Power of Now’ with a staggering 5 million copies sold in the US alone. It is an elite member of Oprah Winfrey’s book club, to which she was so impressed that she compiled a series of webinars alongside Eckhart that by the 3rd week had over 11 million viewers logging in.

The book offers so many ‘Aha’ moments that we can all relate too. He offers tools including meditation practices of many variations, breathing techniques involving stillness and silence. One simple practice is to simply hold a flower and see it for what it truly is… a miracle of beauty bestowing the wonderment of nature which surrounds us at every moment.

I was brought up a Catholic and had quotes and extracts from the bible flung at me from every angle. Eckhart explains many of the passages from the Bible with a simplistic and realistic approach that actually make them believable and in a way that has given me some comprehendible insights and an understanding of it for the very first time.

“All life-forms need obstacles and challenges in order to evolve.”― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

eckhart tolle-a new earth-a review


‘A New Earth’ covers many aspects and varieties of the suffering of not only the individual but also of humanity in general. The chapter on The Pain Body was a real eye-opener for me. Eckhart explains that it actually an entity that is an accumulation of past negative events and future imaginings of what those memories will endure from our different experiences and conditioning.

It seems to start off with 1 simple negative thought and then rehashes the many others locked in our memories and puts us In a position of judgement and superiority in making the other person or thing wrong, giving us total authority to blame and condemn either the person or situation. He also explains that our awareness of the pain body is often seen in someone else first.

When someone we know or love gets mad and goes a bit crazy in a situation that is completely out of character. With this awareness, we can then understand our own relationship with our pain body and gives tools and strategies to become conscious of its arrival and to extinguish it before it snowballs leaving us filled with both confusion and regret.

Any negative emotion that is not fully faced and seen for what it is in the moment it arises does not completely dissolve. It leaves behind a remnant of pain. … This energy field of old but still very-much-alive emotion that lives in almost every human being is the pain-body.



“A wake-up call for the entire planet . . . [A New Earth] helps us to stop creating our own suffering and obsessing over the past and what the future might be, and to put ourselves in the now.” —Oprah Winfrey

The enormous, positive impact this book has had on me is unbelievable. I feel like a new person with all the information packed into this book. I am now rereading to ensure I grasp everything this gem has to offer and I honestly feel like I would’ve been rereading for years to come. I have made so many notes and highlights and reading them every day fills me with such joy and peace. This is a process and at the time the information would be so profound that you need a moment or the rest of the day to focus and really let whatever information (and there is an abundance) that sticks out to YOU sink in and process! This book will change the way you look at life… GUARANTEED!!

Brings true peace in and understanding of life. Have kept this book within reach for more than 12 years. When I feel unhappy or distraught I pop it open to whatever page it lands on, and it is just like taking medicine… only you don’t need any pills or anything that comes at all from the outside.

This covers all you need to get into mindful meditation or if you’re already into it, it will catapult you into the next level. It is my bible because it is beautifully simplistic yet deeply meaningful and dense so I read it over and over again. Eckhart Tolle is a leader in the evolution of humankind
What can I say! Once again Tolle has shed enormous light on the basis of all our so-called problems, reinforcing the fact that ‘All problems are an Illusion of the mind.’ Myself along with millions of others have been and will be continually influenced by his teachings in this remarkable book.
This again is not a book that you will simply read and put it on the bookshelf. It also isn’t a book for everyone. I have recommended this book to many friends and some of them just found it too hard too read or just didn’t get it. However, if you are ready you will read, consume and be marvelled at his work.
For those of you who are ready, I can give this book no higher recommendation. A life changer in its truest form. Having taken the first step in purchasing the book I implore you to introduce it to your friends and loved ones at the earliest opportunity as I leave you with a  quote that is hugely relevant as I write
I certainly hope you enjoyed this review and I welcome your comments here below. If you found this to be beneficial and would like to help spread the word to improve our world and give others the opportunity to have a more fulfilling life I ask you to share and like in the relative places below.eckhart tolle-a new earth-a review
With the deepest of thanks,



  1. This information is very timely, I’ve been going through difficulties trying to let go of the hurt I feel. I was brutally let down by the people I trusted the most, and this has changed my whole perspective about life. However, the book, A new earth can help me learn to live again. Maybe I’ll be able to see that my so called problems are only an illusion. I would love to read this book because, right now I need all the help I can get in rediscovering m purpose for living.

    1. Dear Louis,

      I feel for you mate and I can relate to where you are right now. As Eckhart explains the situations we sometimes face are necessary for our evolution.  I feel the reading of this book can give you a whole new perspective of things and bring you out the other side much wiser and stronger… don’t wait, get the book and begin the process of change for the better

      Through adversity we conquer!



  2. Tons of value to be found in this particular book. I can’t wait to get mine because the reviews that were written by readers have given a clue that it would surely benefit readers. I have always known ECKHART TOLLE to be a good inspirational writer and I can say it authoritatively that A new earth is not an exception. Thanks for sharing 

    1. Hello Ola, Nice to see you here again. As I have mentioned in my review the writer gives us many insights so that we may first have an awareness of how our mind works. This understanding and awareness along with proven strategies give us hope to end the suffering and lead a more joyful life.

      Congratulations on your ownership of A New Earth



  3. Hi Paul, this is really helpful. I think this book will be really helpful for my entire family for their personal development.

    I just realized that out real problems are within our minds; in our thoughts and then that births unhappiness. Just reading these comments has began changing my perspective of life already. I’ll definitely get this book.

    Thank you for this review.

    1. Hi Sammy and you’re most welcome. My mission is to bring people together and share in the knowledge of the best teachers to get a knowledge of why we do what we do. Many of us are simply on autopilot following what we’ve been taught by society. May we all pull through the struggles of mediocrity and enjoy life so precious and short.



  4. I can’t get enough of Eckhart Tolle and his wonderful books. I read The New Earth more than ten times and I never got tired of reading it. I am currently on the eleventh time and will soon finish it. I gave it to my siblings, after reading it, they had to get theirs. It is a book that will truly help anyone in life

    1. Hi Linus,

      Great to hear from you and your positive reaction and feed back to the book. I too have read ‘A New Earth ‘ many times and it’s falling apart actually, but it continues to be my constant companion. I always learn and am reminded of something with each opening of the book.

      What makes me truly happy is your passing on of the book to your siblings. What a wonderful gift to have given them


  5. Truly I have always had this Personal believe that we humans needs to stop obsessing over the past or what the future might bring but instead of doing all that we could try to live the now. This book also supporst that claim coupled with other natural ways such as meditation on how we can bring the best in ourselves. This is no doubt a great book as I have gained a lot just by sharing quotes from the book. Need to get mine ASAP. That’s again for this great info

    1. Hi Seyi,

      Nice to hear from you and your belief in our obsessing with past and future is very accurate indeed. Most are not even aware they are doing it. This book brings awareness to detrimental thought patterns and offers solutions. Get the book mate ASAP. You’ll be glad you did

      Cheers mate


  6. We all need motivation and help at some point of our life to strive. Many of those people that suicide  I believe needed material like this to keep their hope alive and their life will change. I have some failure in the past and some times I feel like this is not the position I am supposed to be in terms of life achievement. But I have always hope that things will get better. I’m a motivational speaker my self so it will be very good for me to get this book so that I can also feel refreshed in my life motivation. This world is full of many with hopelessness hence I love anybody trying to bring back the hope and life that was missing. Thanks for bringing this piece to me. 

    1. Hello there,

      Nice to hear from you and your thoughts on life. Suicide is a terrible thing and yes I think this book offers choices in ones life when there seems to be none. I honestly feel many of the ideas in this book should be shared in schools long before the trials and tribulations that are part of life begin so we are ablr to deal with them intelligently. good luck with the public speaking. What a great opportunity to use some of the insights in this book to help change peoples lives.

      Bless you bro, get the word out there


  7. Thanks for such a brilliant post, this is clearly is a motivational post.Our mind is our greatest asset and paying attention to it can helps the situation. This book is full of value and the review is highly inspirational, ECKHART TOLLE has been a good writer from the onset. I can’t wait to have this A NEW EARTH book that’s full of knowledge and motivation. Best regards

    1. Hi there and welcome,

      I honestly feel this is is one of the most important books of our time and not just a necessity but a privilege to read. It’s my wish that you will own this book, re and reread, being an example to those you love the most and to then pass it on to them so the next generations can live a wonderful joyful life.

      Cheers mate


  8. Thanks for bringing out another life-changing book review Eckhart Tolle  A-new earth. Recently I have fallen in love with most of the books you do reviews on because I always find each and every one of them useful in my daily life. After I read them to the extent that I repeated it over and over again to have a clear understanding of it and am sure a New Earth is not going to be an exception with the aspect it covers concerning varieties of the suffering of humanity, it’s a must to read for me

    1. Hey there, Thanks for the kind words and It certainly a great honour to have you recommend the book for me.  I have read many books over the years and my reviews are always very personal because I feel so much responsibility to share because of the positive effects they have had on me. I hope you will pass the message on to your friends and relatives, we all deserve the very best!!

      Thanks again


  9. In this challenging world, there’s nothing better than finding comfort in books that are very enlightening. I find this book Eckhart very consoling especially in times when I am challenged by financial troubles and blaming others for the mess I am in right now. I should have taken more responsibility for my life. To anyone having the same problem and outlook in life, I must say that having this book by Eckhart will help you a lot. You will also develop the habit of reading good books particularly the Bible which is a very good guide in times of troubles.

    1. Hi Gomer

      Thanks for dropping by again, you’re all over my site mate. Once again you offer some great advice and you are a prime example of what a book that changes your outlook on like can do. I can feel you are facing some challenging times and I feel for you however as you have mentioned you can find solace in books and there’s none better than this one. Cheers and all the best for the future. Always here for you mate!


  10. ECKHART TOLLE is a great motivational teacher. His books are uniquely written. Though I have not read this particular piece I have read one of his books and I can’t get enough so I believe that this one can’t be an exception. Major source of happiness or otherwise lies within our minds. Anyone that has power to control his mind toward happiness regardless of the situation will forever be happy! I learnt this a bit late in my life but I am glad I did learn it. Nobody can make you feel happy or otherwise unless you agreed within yourself first.

    i love reading inspirational books and ECKHART TOLLE has joined my list of authors.

    thanks for sharing. I would love to read more from this page.

    1. So glad you enjoyed my review of another of Eckhart’s fabulous books. He really takes things to a new level in ” A New Earth’. His teachings and/or signposts are really enlightening and he points out very simple ways of changing the sometimes farcical ways we choose to live our lives. It’s never too late to begin change and I think it is only when you become a seeker and go searching that this book might be comprehendible.

      Welcome to the journey, may you never stray from the path


  11. Wow – Jim Carrey really said it in the video you have here hosted by Oprah, All you have is this… THIS moment, right now. If you waste time thinking about a negative thing that happened, or someone you don’t like, you are not spending your time well. You really need to enjoy things for what they are. I really needed to hear this because I have been depressed lately. There have been circumstances that make my living arrangements a bit unbearable but my son is the light of my life and the thing that keeps me from getting sucked up in this whirlwind of depression.  I refuse to let myself go because it will affect my baby. 

    Ultimately I need to be reminded of what the most important thing in life is – which is having life itself. It can be taken away at any moment! I feel very inspired by the quotes you have here from the book. This just might be the book I need to read for some way to get out of this funk I am in. For the sake of me and my family. Thank you for this inspiring review on Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth!

    1. Hi there Sophia,

      So happy to receive your comment. First of all, you have my complete admiration. When faced with our so-called ‘tough times’ we all need strength. Firstly the strength to hang in there and overcome, and then as we look back to have the perception that it wasn’t so bad after all. That is was part of our ever-evolving life. To see and feel the strength that we have gained and the good that has come of it.

      It is my wish that we can all take on challenging times with the knowledge that it is a necessary part of who we are and who we are becoming, and be present enough to accept and enjoy the experience.

      Wishing you love and blessings Sophia,


  12. You have a beautiful website with a great series of messages.  While I was looking around, I stumbled across this post about Eckhart Tolle’s new book, “A New Earth; Awakening Your Life’s Purpose.”   I’m almost embarrassed to admit that I have not read his other book, “The Power of Now” yet.    I have heard about the concept of the power of now and living in the present.  I simply haven’t read the book.  

    Yet, from your description it sounds like both of Tolle’s books would great additions to my library.  As you mentioned, some books are references.  Books that you want to read multiple times.   That is exactly the type of book that I want to have in my library.  Sometimes just having the book on the desk or dresser or table, will remind me to get my focus to where it needs to be.  

    Thank you! 

    1. Hello Sondra,

      Lovely to see you here again and thanks so much for your comment. It’s so nice to hear that you enjoy my website and I like to think there is a vast array of great reading here too. No need to be embarrassed, it’s never too late and you sound like someone who can gain great benefit from your first reading. 

      Your spot on with your description of these as reference books they never cease to provide monumental knowledge in a clear simple and profound way. I know you have started a new business and both these books can steer you in the right direction and keep you focused on the journey to true fulfilment and success.

      The very best always
