Eckhart Tolle introduces his core teachings for children's literature for the first time with Milton's Secret, an engaging story featuring a young boy learning the difference between Then and When, living in the Present Moment, and using non-gibberish dialogue. Through carefully written prose, plausible dialogue, effective illustrations, non-gibberish scenarios and coherent messages from Tolle, children come away understanding that living a fear-free life is possible when willing to let go of control over external factors.
Eckhart Tolle provides insight into why children often scream and cry when they lose their toys, highlighting this behavior as an early indication of "pain-body." Additionally, he discusses how parents who are constantly at war can have an adverse impact on their children, while providing ideas to create a peaceful energy field in the home.
Eckhart Tolle has been an influential spiritual teacher for more than 30 years and his books have sold millions worldwide. Additionally, he has published articles and spoken publicly on spiritual topics. Eckhart Tolle advocates mindfulness meditation - which focuses on living in the present - as the only means of finding inner peace and happiness here on Earth. Furthermore, he promotes his belief that attaining enlightenment is accessible to everyone and professes to have achieved it himself.
