A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose is a self-help book by Eckhart Tolle. First published in 2005, it sold 5 million copies in North America by 2009. In 2008 it was selected for Oprah's Book Club and featured in a series of 10 weekly webinars with Tolle and Oprah Winfrey.

“A wake-up call for the entire planet . . . [A New Earth] helps us to stop creating our own suffering and obsessing over the past and what the future might be, and to put ourselves in the now.” 

Excerpt from the preface to the 10th Anniversary Edition of A New Earth:

Since its release, A New Earth has been read in forty-four languages by countless people all over the world.  The in-depth webinar I did with Oprah Winfrey, during which we explored the main themes of the book, has been watched thirty-five million times.  So the question naturally arises:  Ten years later—where are we?  Is a “new earth” arising, a world where the egoic state of consciousness in its insanely dysfunctional manifestations, both individual and collective, has dissolved or at least subsided, and where humans no longer create unnecessary suffering for themselves, one another, as well as other life-forms on the planet?  Or does a fundamental change in human consciousness remain an unrealistic utopian vision, as one reviewer of the book suggested?

If we go exclusively by the information we receive on a daily basis through the news reports and the mainstream media, then our assessment of the state of human affairs in this new millennium will necessarily be overwhelmingly negative, and we will most likely come to the depressing conclusion that nothing has changed. After all, it continues to be true for millions of people that the greater part of human suffering is not due to natural disasters, but is inflicted by humans on one another.  What we consume as the daily “news,” as well as the commentaries on the news, however, is not the whole picture.  Not infrequently, the way in which the news is reported and commented upon, even by the so-called respectable news outlets, already contains bias and distortion, and so, without realizing it, our worldview becomes conditioned.  More important, the news tends to focus mostly on incidents and areas of our planet that represent the most extreme forms of human unconsciousness, which more often than not means violence and warfare, or at least severe dysfunction.  Of course, there is no denying that dreadful things happen on a daily basis, and also that we are facing an increasing number of crises, but that is not the whole story.

There are so many positive things occurring that are not considered newsworthy, but are in fact of much greater significance than any of those daily acts of unconsciousness. Those changes in fact started to arise long before A New Earth and The Power of Now were written.  Those books were written to speed up the process of spiritual awakening that had already begun, as well as to enable greater numbers of people to become part of that process and thus find a deeper meaning in their lives that transcends the merely personal dimension of existence.

In many parts of the world, there is an emerging sense of social justice that our ancestors couldn’t even have dreamed of.  The subjugation of one race by another, the domination of women throughout thousands of years and patriarchy, and the devaluing of people based on social class are for growing numbers of us nightmares of the past.
