Tolle is clearly a man with a mission.,

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment (Taschenbuch)
Despite the fact that Tolle claims to have written this book only upon request from other people, this man, like so many others, seems to have the mission of convincing the world that what worked for him must be the solution to all earthly problems.
Anyhow Tolle's analysis and "method" of getting to the Now is quite powerful, helpful and can in fact change your life to the better.
However, Tolle having found this new focus point in the prsence, now falls into the trap of making it the center of a world view, overly generalizing the results and judging everything from this/his newly aquired standpoint.
He is quick to draw "obvious" conclusions, quote from every monumental book our civilization has brought forth (the Bible, the Koran, the Tao, etc.) and interpreting the quotes within a paragraph in the light or as a proof of the "power of now".
And, like many converts, who have lived through a dramatic turning point in their lives, he is very willing to condemn everything else, and especially everything which actually correlates with his "previous" life, as insane or mad.
This book carries a great message but you will have to be careful to draw your own conclusions and discern the basic truths from the personal problems, which are mainly related to the Tolle-Personality rather than yourself.

Though I really do understand every single word of this comment it only shows that the commentator did not follow Tolle into the depth of stillness, wherein the - first personal truths , then universal Truth is found.
About Tolle quoting the bible. Didnt Jesus say "I am the way and Life and Truth"? And didnt he say at the same time "I am the Light shining in every human being" And the "light was shining in the darkness, but the darkness didnt comprehend it"?
If this is taken seriously w h e r e - else, dear Mr Schmidt, would one experience this "light in the darkness" if not exactly where Tolle guides us to: contemplating in the stillness, in the silence of the eternal Now?
And of course this experience is universally accesible ("Knock and it will be opened!"), the point is just that people prefer being distracted by the noise of their desireful and excited presentday-personality.
Nothing at all is condemmned by Tolle. But everything is questioned and revalued. And of course the seat of insanity and madness is found in wrong thinking and unhealthy attitudes. Whereelse?
