A new earth by Eckhart tolle. It's an amazing book, the first time I read it a few years ago I thought it was jibberish. Then a few years later picked it up again and seemed to get it...and for a while my head was quite. The nagging voice came back..but less and it subdues when I read that book.  If you want to expose your 'ego' this is a great book . If you get it..that incessant voice in your head will never be the same again

I second that:

I think Tolle managed to present eastern wisdom in a very lucid manner.

You must be naturally dumb then. 

Maybe. I expected it would be interesting but it was not a light read and I gave up on it.

Agree, read it many years ago and found it was probably the most impactful book I had ever read. Should read it again

I shouldn't have been so harsh for your honest opinion. Sorry about that. Guess I can be an ar5e as well. 

I thought the book was really good in how it explained those moments of stillness that you can sometimes get if you're lucky when meditating (simran). Those moments (what he calls the power of now i.e. being in the moment unencumbered by the baggage of the past, as well as concerns about the future) are psychologically and spiritually rejuvenating. 

And I didn't agree with all he said, I just thought he helped elucidate a purpose of meditation very well.    

You should maybe try reading it again, because you might be in a different mindplace now, and be able to take more out of it. I should read it again too sometime.

Yes, let’s try gather wisdom, even though Guru told you wisdom won’t go with you.

Sehas Siaanapaa Lakh Hohi Th Eik N Chalai Naal ||

With simran you can take a book, place 1 hand underneath, 1 hand on top and close your eyes. In minutes you can read the whole book then recite it back from heart afterwards. 

Infinite power comes from simran. Please don’t waste your life trying to ‘find wisdom’ from books 🤦🏼‍♂️

Been thinking about this recently, 99% Sikhs haven’t got a clue what Guru Nanak Dev Ji taught. We know about rehat, banaa, maryada, 5ks (things with purpose) - which all came later. But teaching Guru Nanak Ji gave - Shabad Guru Surat Dhun Chela

~ How many of us can explain what Surat is? 1% maybe?

My new project will discuss such things

Coming Soon...

I think Dasam Granth encourages us to gather wisdom and have wits for navigating this material experience.
