Real taxi drivers know more than how to get you there without a GPS. Philosophers all, they know how to get you there in life. This 20th anniversary edition of the wise and hilarious classic, as true now as ever, is a celebration of the witty, philosophical perspective on human nature culled from real quotations from real cab drivers who´ve been around the block. On reading the signs: ´´If a man keeps telling you he loves you, over and over, then something is wrong.´´ On vanity economics: ´´The worse a town´s economy is, the better looking the guys who work at the local gas station are.´´ Evocative black and white photos and a cab-dash padded cover with taxi-yellow page edges showcases the wisdom in style.

What is time? We give it so much importance, but as Eckhart Tolle teaches, we can only ever experience the timeless present. The Illusion of Time explores this paradox, pointing the way out of a dysfunctional relationship to time—and into the fullness of life in the here and now. In this empowering two-session program, Eckhart exposes the roots of our obsession with time to help us free ourselves from the ongoing stream of thoughts about the past and future—and reconnect with the depths of who we are beyond the mind. Discover: Eckhart’s secret for less stress and greater productivity. How to get past the nagging sense that ´´something’s missing.” The source of insight and wisdom greater than our intellect. How to realign—with nature, life, and what is. ´´This moment is life—whether I’m warm and dry or if it’s raining and I can’t find a taxi,” says Eckhart. The Illusion of Time brings you his practical guidance in embracing the present—and awakening to who we are in our eternal, essential nature. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eckhart Tolle.
