I never read "The Power of Now" or heard of Eckhart Tolle until I read the book "De-Escalate" by Douglass Noll. At first I was resistant to what Tolle was stating as I felt it was too "mystical" for my taste. However, I did appreciate & agree with his thoughts on addictive to enlightened relationships & acceptance & surrender. I agree that one must let go of the past in order to move forward & grow. Don't give in to knee-jerk reactions & what one's been conditioned to think, say & do. He offers good ideas & insights into this.
