Summary

Discover the infinite possibilities of the “vertical dimension” of existence.

Eckhart Tolle has long taught a curious truth: You’re not your possessions. You’re not your career. You’re not the events of your life. You’re not even the contents of your mind.

So, who are you?

With The Journey into Yourself, this beloved teacher invites you to join him on an odyssey beyond the “horizontal dimension” of thought and into an aspect of our lives that most of us overlook: the “vertical dimension” beyond the reach of the mind. According to Eckhart, the vertical dimension might be better known as the present moment or the now - all that ever really is. And that includes you - the real you.

Recorded before a live audience at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, The Journey into Yourself presents a rarely heard talk from early in Eckhart’s teaching career. Here you will encounter more than eight hours of practical, provocative, and occasionally hilarious teachings for awakening to who we are beyond the physical.

Highlights:

  • Why the phrase “life is a dream” is more accurate than you might expect
  • Piercing the veil of self-made suffering
  • The gentle and fierce aspects of embodied Presence
  • Why setbacks and discomfort are the most potent teachers
  • Wisdom teachings from Buddhism, Christianity, and Hindu traditions that point to the embodiment of Presence
  • Why right action can only arise from surrender to the moment

With The Journey into Yourself, Eckhart encourages you to step into the space between thoughts and discover the joyous treasures that lie within.

If your true self can’t be found in your job, your possessions, your body, or even the contents of your mind, then just who are you, anyway? Eckhart Tolle has long considered this question - and with The Journey into Yourself, he guides listeners on a fascinating exploration beyond conceptual identities and into the timeless consciousness of the present moment.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great listen with one big issue

As always Eckhart tolle provides great insight into what really matters in life and tells it in a meaningful and practical way. However as other readers have said there is some guy in the audience who laughs constantly and after a while this starts to become hugely irritating to the point that I could only listen to this book for short periods of time. Some clever editing is required as it really detracts from the listening experience.

Stick to Power Of Now & New Earth

Although there are some interesting points in this recorded talk, much is just a repeat of the content in Tolle’s prominent audio books.

Also, for some reason, one individual in the audience during this recording is intent on bursting into fits of manic laughter, often at random. When the rest of the audience does makes a noise, he is almost screaming to make himself the loudest, very strange and slightly off putting when attempting to focus on Tolle.

If you’re new to Tolle, go for power of now/a new earth.

Edit out the false laughing

It takes away from the experience of this book. Otherwise a good listen, recommended without the background audience member !

Mind Blowing- Literally

I have listened to the power of now, a new earth, and stillness speaks a few times and this is by far a wonderful addition to my collection. It deepens my understanding of what it means to be aware and awake in the present moment and be able to take right action from there. I found myself laughing at the human condition and my own mind in a healing way. I feel present as I listen. Very transformative. A gift to human beings everywhere. I would love to attend a retreat and sit in that field of energy with conscious people laughing and being.
