In A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose, Tolle explains in detail why ego is the primary hindrance to an awakened state of mind. To seek fullness and comprehend the purpose of one’s life, ego must be diminished and one must cherish the simplest joys of life. Profusion and inadequacy are merely inner states of mind and the mind can be mastered. Eckhart also quotes examples from Hinduism, Zen and other philosophies to establish the perfection of the ‘Now’ state - the present state. When this paradigm shift in the deep consciousness happens, a new earth is created with awakened minds and souls.
