8 thoughts on “People’s Choice #6: The Power of Now”
My People’s Choice goes to Maria for her post titled, “The Power of Now.”
I chose her post because vividly described the book in a lot of details. She mentioned a lot of quotes that grabbed her attention while reading the book, which she then explained what and how they made her feel. As stated by Maria, “I fully disagree with what the author says on page 172, ‘we as individuals are not complete, we are one-half of the whole.’ I believe we each are a whole, and when it comes to man and woman being in a relationship, I prefer to say that each of them is a whole, because saying that we are a half put us in a mindset that we can never be fully happy by ourselves, because allegedly we individually are incomplete (a half).” I totally agree with her statement about disagreeing with the author.
My People’s Choice this week is for Aryanna.
I believe she made a good analysis of what the book’s main message is.
My vote for people’s choice goes to Maria
In my opinion reading Maria’s very detailed response to the book will give anyone who hasn’t read the book a great idea of what to expect when reading. She provides multiple ideas that Tolle presents in his book and explains not only what the idea is but why they stood out to her. I counted and Maria mentioned a different page number THIRTY TIMES. Maria had a great mixture of quality and quantity and that’s why I chose her.

I voted for Maria because her citations had very detailed analysis. And she connected her analysis to her real life experience.
My peoples choice goes to Maria. https://openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/belli-sp2021-eng3402/2021/03/23/995/
I vote for Maria because I love how detailed her response is it truly discusses the concept of the whole book, and then I also love how she includes her own analysis of any quote that she mentions.
This week my vote goes to Maria.
I choose Maria because I like how detailed and informative her response was not that no one else posts were detailed but she really explained herself thoroughly and her quotes from the texts were very meaningful . If you never read the book before, you would get a pretty good concept of what it was based on her response.
I vote for Robby because he brought up something that I missed even thought I read each page of the book; “When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in power. So, change the situation by taking action or by speaking out.” https://openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/belli-sp2021-eng3402/2021/03/23/reading-response-6-the-power-of-now
I vote for Maria this week for People’s Choice. I find her post very informative and love the way she broke each subject down so it is easy to understand. I also enjoyed that she related each subject to her own behavior making it more relatable.
