A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

Agama Books - A New EarthIn A New Earth: Awakening Your Life’s Purpose, this gentle teacher traces human suffering to one simple, yet insidious, root: the ego. While many authors and philosophers throw around the word “ego”, Tolle actually exposes what the ego IS–and why it causes us so much trouble.

While 17th century philospher Rene Descartes may be considered the “father of philosophy”, his famous dictum “I think, therefore I am” mechanized humans into “thinking machines” that can reason their way through any problem–and to “ultimate truth”. Cartesian philosophy (named for Descartes) has permeated our culture for centuries and can be best summed up with “I think–that is my identity–and therefore, my thinking is my Being”. According to Tolle, Descartes discovered the root of EGO, not Beingness.
