The world is filled with people who are plagued by unhappiness and suffering. This has always been true and yet can be easily overcome. Author Eckhart Tolle believes that we are a people too defined by what our minds project and seek peace and fulfillment from the outside world when it holds no true meaning. To obtain enlightenment, all you need to do is embrace the Power of Now. It is already here, and it is all that is available to you. The past and the future are nothing but illusions of time. The Now is all that we have and embracing it, surrendering to it, will set you free.
