Finally, I ask you to consider what Inner Peace means. Because this book is supposed to be about attaining inner peace. The Buddha described inner peace as freedom from all desire and aversion, and that such a state is equanimous and blissful.

Finally, I ask you to consider what Inner Peace means. Evatt seems to have some other vague notion of inner peace which does not preclude the necessity of our continued evolution into some ever higher state. 15 people found this helpful.

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment is a book by Eckhart Tolle. The book is intended to be a guide for day-to-day living and stresses the importance of living in the present moment and transcending thoughts of the past or future. As of 2009, it was estimated that three-million copies had been sold in North America.

Why is your life the way it is? How do your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs affect your perception of the world around you? How does this perception influence your power, and therefore affect your state of Inner Peace? Most importantly, how can you approach your life--as it is right now--in such a way so as to liberate yourself from suffering and become established in a lasting state of Peace, in the Power to fulfil your purpose, and in absolute Presence to the perfection that you are?

In this groundbreaking new book Peace, Power, and Presence, Jonathan Evatt brings clarity to key principles and perspectives on these and other challenging questions. The result is nothing short of your becoming empowered to recognize the ultimate answers already emerging from the essence within you. You will pierce through the many veils of deception so prevalent in the world today, and step into a Life of Freedom defined not by some external source of knowledge but by the immaculate wisdom of your own Being.

Peace, Power, and Presence are the fulfilment of what each of us is striving to discover through all our many endeavours. Those people familiar with Jonathan's liberating approach to Life have been empowered by the realization that the fulfilment of Peace, Power, and Presence within them requires no beliefs, no dogma, no institutions, and no blind adherence to the many outdated religions and spiritual teachings in the world today. In what is set to become a key point of reference for those individuals interested in spiritual and human freedom, Jonathan makes no attempt to show you how to live your life. Instead, he shares with you a new way to approach the life you are already living--an approach that will bring into actualization your innate qualities of Enlightenment--for a Life of Freedom.

A wonderful range of very practical information, stories and questions pulled together with a sharp eye and an intense personal commitment to the material, to those with love of learning and to the world we all dream into manifestation with every breath. Jonathan is not on the bleachers and he is not interested in you being there either. I met him out in the field where the kind of searching, experimenting, dreaming, healing and loving, which this book seeks to explore, really takes place, in the flesh. This work comes from truth and is one enriching way to open ourselves further to that truth for which we seek. I recommend it to anyone who is in the throws of their own magnificent Becoming, or who might be considering it.

This book was one of the most influential books in my own personal spiritual journey. The author is highly intelligent and writes extremely well. Be prepared however, it reads more like college reader than a story book, and is one of the most dense books spanning over 400 pages, that I have read...since college. It is not an easy read, but well worth the effort, especially for those seeking something that will stimulate and challenge you both intellectually and spiritually. This is the kind of book that will never get old or forgotten, lost and berried under piles of dust. I find new wisdom and insight every single time I open it!

There is a great deal of repetitiveness throughout the book. It conveys in 10 pages would could be conveyed in one. But that's a minor grievance. Mainly, I am reading this to see how it stacks up against what the Buddha taught, since the Buddha's map of enlightenment is so-far unparalleled in my view. But I am open to other possibilities (and how tantalizing it is to think of an enlightenment which doesn't require world-renunciation!). The main difference one notices right off the bat is that Evatt is not into the "no-self" (anatta) doctrine of Buddha, but rather the "all-Self" doctrine of Sankara (Advaita Vedanta). Buddha said that this all-Self view is not fully liberated and is stuck at one of the lower jhanas (maybe the 6th?).

On page 94, Evatt says that ego is not something to be transcended, as other paths would have you believe. Then a few lines later on page 95, he says, "...our adherence to a pluralist perception of the ego as a separate entity must now be transcended for people to awaken to Inner Peace and for the evolution of Awareness [which Evatt defines as The Great Mystery] to continue. It is not the ego that spiritual seekers must transcend, but rather our limited perception of what the ego --our sense of 'I' --actually incorporates." He then goes on to say that we must expand our concept of ego to contain all of life, and thus our self/other divide evaporates. Poof! Ok... so this is basically Advaita, I guess.

On Page 100, Evatt makes some odd connections that go like this: Plants sometimes produce nuts and seeds. These things have protein. Protein has nitrogen. You can "experience nitrogen" by ingesting nitrogenous amines like LSD and psilocybin. Ok, whatever. Nothing wrong with entheogens (they can give a glimpse of your mind), but this is starting to feel like just the ramblings of someone who has done too much LSD. Now on the same page he goes on about how humans are vastly different and more complex than other animals. Really? How on earth would he know that we are more complex than dolphins, for example? No evidence, just his own opinion. Since he is enlightened (which was my assumption, read on), he must be right...

But the ego is more than nitrogen (and now he says Nitrogen is the astral energy), he goes onto say. It is also experienced in Hydrogen! And matter is just Carbon. And Oxygen is the etheric/pranic energy.

Now on page 106 he starts talking about Satan/Lucifer who is the one causing us to identify with our ego (Hydrogen?). And he says that when he doesn't actively identify with his higher self, he falls back into identifying with the lower self. Ok, there we go. Proof that he's not enlightened. He has had some satori experiences and that's it, just like most new-age types who don't want to become monks. I've had satori as well, and it hasn't led to the end of suffering, so I am not enlightened yet.

The only time he mentions Buddhism at all is on page 133, where he says that he disagrees with the 4 Noble Truths, because he doesn't see that all of life is suffering or unsatisfactory, since he has found inner peace as his baseline state. Hmm, that's interesting. In other words, he still suffers, but he is usually not aware of suffering, so therefore life is not filled with suffering. Sorry, but that just sounds deluded and wishful. In any case, whatever peace he has obtained has been obtained by letting go of self-clinging. He simply hasn't let go to the extreme that Buddha would ask us to in order to finally end suffering/unsatisfactoriness forever. Although he never engages with Buddhism at all besides this, he does have a few quotes from Buddha as if to say, "Yeah, I'm hip to Buddhism, and Buddha would totally dig my new take on things."

On page 207, he claims that there is not truth to karma or even cause->effect. Then he explains that rather than X leading to Y, Y is simply "the natural progression of X." Semantics? To illustrate his argument he gives an example of moving your hand back and forth, and says, essentially, "did moving your hand to the left CAUSE it to move the right? No, of course not." Then he goes on to say that he agrees with the Law of Attraction... ugh!

I'm done with this book.

Sorry to be so negative. I'm sure this guy is helping people to start reconsidering reality in some useful ways, but I also feel that he is leading folks into a dead-end that will be hard to get out of. Once you think you have figured everything out, it's hard to question whether you really have or not.

I just wish that people who think they have figured everything out would really study what Buddha said more deeply. Buddha gave a clear-cut, and very comprehensible map of enlightenment that folks ignore at their own peril. If you are not into Buddhism, ask yourself why. Is it just because it seems too hard to give up all the stuff you want to be/do/have?

Finally, I ask you to consider what Inner Peace means. Because this book is supposed to be about attaining inner peace. The Buddha described inner peace as freedom from all desire and aversion, and that such a state is equanimous and blissful. Evatt seems to have some other vague notion of inner peace which does not preclude the necessity of our continued evolution into some ever higher state.

This book provides a solid framework of fundamental truth that I will surely use along the way. I highly recommend this book to any and everyone. Great tool filled with gems!

Mystics, inner-self, all-self, eliminating tanha (a natural human, physical tendency to some degree ... we should have the intelligence and discipline to control tanha, NOT eliminate it entirely; after all, we live in a physical world! That is just one of Siddhartha Gautama's - buddha's - assessments and opinions which was incorrect or poorly conceived) ... I've found the Christian Bible to be more fulfilling, insightful and enlightening, while ultimately providing an equal balance of a Spiritual world coexisting with our only too obvious physical world!
