Summary

What is time? We give it so much importance, but as Eckhart Tolle teaches, we can only ever experience the timeless present. The Illusion of Time explores this paradox, pointing the way out of a dysfunctional relationship to time—and into the fullness of life in the here and now.

In this empowering two-session program, Eckhart exposes the roots of our obsession with time to help us free ourselves from the ongoing stream of thoughts about the past and future—and reconnect with the depths of who we are beyond the mind. Discover:

  • Eckhart’s secret for less stress and greater productivity.
  • How to get past the nagging sense that “something’s missing.”
  • The source of insight and wisdom greater than our intellect.
  • How to realign—with nature, life, and what is.

“This moment is life—whether I’m warm and dry or if it’s raining and I can’t find a taxi,” says Eckhart. The Illusion of Time brings you his practical guidance in embracing the present—and awakening to who we are in our eternal, essential nature.

Eckhart Tolle in his own voice: magnificent

Would you consider the audio edition of The Illusion of Time to be better than the print version?

Yes because you can hear it in his voice and the content is brilliant when expressed this way.

What did you like best about this story?

The fundamental idea of what time means in daily life

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The beginning. It's surprising! New Yorkers beware ;)

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh several times when Eckhart used his wit to tell a joke.

Helps you to understand being present

I love Eckharts work but often find reading his books difficult to understand, I guess that's the point that we get present and not always trying to think and solve everything from a logical place. I found listening much easier to practise his teachings.

Lose time!

If you could sum up The Illusion of Time in three words, what would they be?

Let go of time!

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

Puts everything into perspective and it is the same subject matter and he even tells you that it is a repeat of everything he has been teaching but if you can get it on this dvd then get it! It took me listening to the Power Of Now, New earth, several of his retreats and other downloadable books. saw tons of you tube videos. but when I got the practicing the power of now is when it all came to light! BAM awakened. It is still a process and I know this but I have made more success in one week than my entire 49 years! Praise God!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I had many extreme meditation experiences just even listening to his books.

Any additional comments?

buy Power of now,the practicing the Power of now those two will change your life, if you let it!

Timeless

Excellent description of time! Explains how to use it when needed and how to escape it for being in presence.

Brilliant

His thoughts seem so random but that is only because he is speaking from his heart; not his head. He communicates from the authenticity of who he is. At times he is hilariously funny and tremendously entertaining.

Is given; not earned. This was a gift of grace as all that comes thro ET... most grateful.
Thank you from the deepest part of “me”

Tolle i is brilliant.

He talks in a stream from conciouzness and the books all have original "thought" although it is not really thought.

Liberating

Loved it! There's freedom when you finally understand the reality of the concepts of space and time, the way we relate to it currently, and the liberation you begin to experience. The essence and awareness of who you are from the restrictions of thought forms that make up our life journey each moment. It helps one to embrace real life as we experience it in the Now.

To many pauses and no speaking

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better selection of his books

Would you ever listen to anything by Eckhart Tolle again?

Yes and still do. This one is not very good at all.

Would you be willing to try another one of Eckhart Tolle’s performances?

If I can exchange for this one since I won't be listening to it.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Illusion of Time?

All the silence in between and the laughter from audience

Any additional comments?

Would really like to exchange
