Hi Erict,

It is a good idea to ascertain the ages of all forum members. This will give us some idea how certain age groups feel the need to invest in Eckhart Tolle's teachings more than other certain age groups. Unfortunately, your current sample of 35 voters does not represent anything meaningful at this stage. I believe that we have between 700 and 800 members on this forum. I urge everybody who has not yet voted to cast their vote to enable erict to compile meaningful statistics!!

Hi srini,
I am very sorry to take away your title as being the oldest member :D Mark you, you possibly could still beat me by a few months :( Anyway, I am the second person to vote in the age bracket of 66+ I am 66 years old but very junior in terms of being able to apply Tolle's teachings to myself. I note that this site has some excellent moderators who keep forum members to a given subject. My compliments!

Regards to all forum members

Became a dad 1,5 years ago and lost my own dad a year ago. I've spent the last year doing a lot of switching between reliving my childhood years and reflecting upon mortality, so i'm not sure what age i feel, but i definitely turned 38 a month ago.

I turned 21 precisely 1 month ago.

The #1 thing that makes ET's teaching a bit difficult for youngsters like me, is that we still have a very strong desire for intimate relationships and our egos define themselves mostly through the sex, love and affection we recieve from the opposite gender.
If there's there is one identity that I'm really afraid of losing, then it's that of being a masculine man.

It is possible to let go of the ego despite such clinging and I think the clinging won't reduce with growing older - but it is easier if you start small and apply other spiritual teachings first, that don't require you to lose all your identity at once.

Just my 2 cents about the question, "How old must one be to understand ET?". ;P

The ego was never who you were. Giving up the ego is like giving up a lie about yourself: if someone had convinced you that you were extremely stupid, and you lived under that burden for many years, and then you found out that it had been a lie all along, you would happily give it up.

Ha! I share the same Birthday with YUDoodat. 31st March. I used to joke that I had the worst hangover of the year on April fool's day....poetic justice I suppose. And I am 47 years of age...although what I have done to deserve such a fate is beyond me...I just kept on living, thats all...its sooooo majorly unfair! It would be better if we are born old then get younger as we go.

Only joking! Sort of....

If I'm right, our age group is leading now - I turned 48 on 24 May (I'm Gemini, just like the pair of twins leading Poland today - the weirdest time in my life :evil: ).
Age doesn't matter. All people, even when they don't want to admit it, feel the same inside all their life, which is IMO the direct proof that we have a soul (or that we are awareness).
It would be truly funny to be born old and die young, Larry, or rather shrink back to fetus-size and pass away. :D
