Oh, c'mon my friend, we've covered this a thousand and one times. For crying out loud, give it up already.
This is the standard nowbie debating tactic deployed any time someone says something that explores beyond the Tolle sanctioned group consensus.
Please observe how you never claim "mind domination" so long as my points agree with yours.
Once again, please observe, what is Tolle himself doing?
Is he writing post after post after post about Eckhart Tolle's personal situation?
Or is his life directed at the larger picture beyond "he and his situation"?
Forget about me, learn this from the actions of the authority figure you respect. Do as he does. Follow in his footsteps.
You want to be a teacher Din, but the thing is, you only want students who will help you keep your personal perspective at the center of the universe.

Like I keep telling you Din, I am surrendering the need to improve. I am surrendering the endless focus on me and my situation. I am accepting where I am NOW, instead of going with you on a glorious future trip.

Ah, the only thing that matters here is me. You just explained the popularity of this branch of now philosophy.
Me, my situation, very important, the only thing that matters!
This isn't the solution my friend, it's the problem.
Thanks for the dialogue Din, I hope somebody other than you and me will find it entertaining at the least.
