5.0 von 5 Sternen Not Everyone's Mystic, 31. Juli 2000
Satyam Nadeen is a self-admitted Type A. He writes like an ad agency account exec. In this book, he still believes that group discussions (satsangs) are valuable and doesn't seem concerned that most degenerate into rants and ho-hum ego trip sessions. (Well, maybe those led by him don't.) He likes the idea (how could he, after being a Rajneeshi! ) of creating a spiritual organization with newsletters, etc. (At least, as of this book, he did.) Nevertheless, if you're not totally in his groove and find his means of expression overly hip for you, he may still have plenty to offer, simply because he doesn't wax ethereal. He is for real and to the point, Poonja-like. He describes the process of enlightenment in a unique and highly candid light from his and his students' own experiences. He has an interesting take on New Age seekers.
On Page 146 he responds to the ancient query of "Why suffering?" in a way most people won't want to hear but that probably is the bottom line on a topic that he says can't be understood by the mind. Yes, his gung-ho-ness might get to you if you're over 25, but there's no denying--if you've read his first book, FROM ONIONS TO PEARLS--that he knows whereof he speaks in regard to what he calls the "Shift." This book is a valuable companion to his first, and a "wake up call" that will ring bells for the open-minded. For tired, chronic do-ers, it is another dandy reminder that fixing life isn't possible at any level.

5.0 von 5 Sternen No fun for the intellect, 15. März 2000
Tired of your ego turning every spiritual practice into a pat on the back? The intellect dead-ends in this no frills book. It inspired me to go hear the author speak, which is an even more stunning experience...the first time I AND my friends were "zapped" with that powerful transmission coming from true silence. Subsequently, for the first time, we could actually still our minds for more than a nanosecond. Catch Tolle's dramatization of the ego grasping for status and security...it's a riot that will make it hard to take the notion of a small self as seriously again! He is, regardless, not one of the snappy dressers, not one of the glam performing gurus who will give you lots of concepts to think over and over. He WILL give you a lot NOT to think about!
