5 Reviews
The now-this moment-is the true source of happiness and peace and the key to living a fulfilled and meaningful life. Embracing the Now is a collection of essays whose common thread is the now. Full of clear insight and wisdom, it explains how the mind keeps you from being in the now, how to move into the now and stay there, and what living from there is like. It also explains how to overcome stumbling blocks to being in the now, such as fears, doubts, judgments, misunderstandings, distrust of life, desires, and other conditioned ideas that are behind human suffering.

User Review  - Izzy Thomas - Goodreads

Great insight, comparable to Tolle's book, but the latter half was long and redundant. Overall, a good book. Read full review
