    Spiritual enlightenment is the fundamental goal of most spiritual practices that you undertake. Enlightenment marks the culminating point of your practice you feel unity of soul with everything, all the mental and physical engagements are left aside. Spiritual enlightenment is the possession of highly evolved souls.  Spiritual masters from all over over the world experience spiritual enlightenment, and help others on there own paths.

    The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle?

    The Power of Now is a spiritual guide. The book is centered around the power of the eternal Now. This is simply the present moment. Everything happens in the present, whether or not you realize it. The past doesn’t actually exist right now. It existed in the Now of the past. The same is true for the future. Only the Now is real.

    The peculiar thing about the Now is that it has some amazing properties. Problems can’t exist in the Now. You always need psychological time to create a problem out of something. This alone is an incredible insight. When you’re really in the moment you can’t help but not worry!

    Meditation is one way. Meditation brings you into the present moment like nothing else can. It turns off annoying thought patterns and other various escapes, and leaves you with nothing more than simply being.

    Another way is to watch your mind. By watching your thoughts, you effectively separate yourself from them. This is a crucial step in dissolving the ego, and a powerful way to access the now. The ego can’t operate unless you are totally identified from it. This is discussed in detail in the book.

    Enlightenment can be said to be nothing more than existing completely in the present moment. By not identifying with your mind and utilizing meditation, you can escape the trap of ego and attain true enlightenment and peace

    I read it, right after reading "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne and I was VERY CONFUSED. So Tolle tells you to ground yourself in the moment and don't expect anything; while Byrne tells you to visualize what you want right now and it will come.
    So, which one is right?
