Re: WhySo Expensive?

If Tolle spends money on cars, expensive dinners, houses etc. isn't he still spreading the wealth so to speak and contributing to society? If your thinking wealth distribution your half right. That's a pretty good thought you have but it doesn't work for rich people. Rich people aren't good at spre...

Re: WhySo Expensive?

At what point would we be satisfied with Tolle? Should he give away half his wealth? 80%? Do we want him to ride a bicycle rather a car? Shouldn't he just walk? And why stop at money? Shouldn't he live with the starving in India or Darfur? We have certain fixed ideas about enlightenment. This is an...

Re: WhySo Expensive?

Surely there are more interesting topics. This is serious though! You can tell alot about a person based on what they do with their millions of dollars. This is really a humongous question. Why on earth would an enlightened guy want nice cars, a huge mansions and a home theater? It would be a joke!...

Re: WhySo Expensive?

His money should help humanity?? His teaching should help humanity? Who are we to judge him or what he does? It's not just him, it's the mass movement towards consciousness. We got into this to end suffering and all find peace so if he isn't trying his best then what is this really about? Hedonism?...

Re: WhySo Expensive?

I'm not questioning the teachings, but the teacher. It just seems grossly hypocritical for an "enlightened" teacher to be so greedy. If he's truly egoless and enlightened why doesn't he do all his work and teachings pro bono, charge to cover publishing costs etc... He has a seemingly endless line of...

Why So Expensive?

How do non-dual teachers like Eckhart justify their outrageous business efforts. ET sells his one book that he claims is the only book necessary yet he made another one which was completely useless. He's diversified his products so much, meditation books, audio tapes, sat sang recordings, meditation...

Re: Who here is fully enlightened?

I am creating a YouTube show where I hang out with awakened teachers and try to get a sense of their everyday selves. Jim is a normal guy, but he is also fully awakened. That is why he is perfect for my show. But they're just normal guys just like you or me. I'm sure they don't live their lives any...

Re: Awakening and Children

when we are awakened, we will be less capable in worldly affairs like money or politics, and we will be less inclined to accomplish...this of course isn't true at all. It's true that you don't loose any of your capabilities when your awakened, you just drastically loose interest in these kinds of t...

Awakening and Children

I'm thinking of awakening and its effects on children. I've seen that Eckhart has published a children's book designed to awaken youngin's. I'm seriously doubting the ethics of this. This is a journey that we've taken upon ourselves to do. We chose. Now young children aren't the best decision makers...

Re: Awakening in troubled marriage

You should definitely try to change your situation the best you can. Don't let your spirituality interfere with maintaining a functioning and healthy family. Don't just "stay present" and let your daughters succumb to emotional abuse. If things are starting to gall into disarray, now is not the time...

Re: Ramana Mahrishi in a nutshell

I agree that meditation and accidents can lead to realization but the only way to get rid of all ego is to question every bit of it as it comes into your life. There can't be a sudden enlightenment. How could all of your thoughts and beliefs just suddenly disappear? This is only what we hope will ha...
