What are they selling ?
This is the ultimate fuel for your ego - what could fuel it more ?
If you sit there generating desires/beliefs/ whatever they call it - you are by definition fucking far away from The Now.
If you are doing anything at all you are not in The Now. Sorry.
I would really caution people not to pour fuel on your dreamy delusion.
This is how it seems to me. And I would be very interested if anyone can say anything reasonable that contradicts this view : because when you have no thoughts you can't start manifesting a reality you prefer - because preference only exists if you make judgements, and judgements only exist if you are not in The Now. Period. Period.

Webwanderer wrote:Life is meant to be explored. I would merely suggest that there is more to living in the now than is clear in your current understanding. No doubt there is more to it than is my current understanding as well. Evolution is an eternal road with ever growing understandings. May we never assume we know anything with finality, for that indeed is a roadblock that must be eventually overcome.
And I would encourage them to explore life's possibilities with clarity and focus while knowing that it is incumbent upon each of us to choose what feels most right. Fear of exploration into the nature of being is not the path to greater understanding. How liberating it is to recognize one's own ego in action. Such recognition may be just the thing to move on to greater clarity and expanding consciousness.

But should one burn his hand, does that mean the stove has been judged and thereby condemned? One would think that a hand on a hot stove is a very 'now' experience - at least until we start calling ourselves names for placing it there. It may be that we just naturally move to better feeling experience when ego is not making such experience wrong.
If you are in the Now there is no experience or experiencer.

On every level is this a mis-take.

You posted ET's response to LoA and it is unequivocal - they don't work together. But your blindness is such that you just ignore what he says and add some vagueness ... and that satisfies you.
Eckhart Tolle is clear that there is no link between LoA and TPON. Because one increases thoughts, and the other seeks to be so present that they fade away. These things are incompatible.
You say "we are designed to think". In this statement you make so many assumptions : and intelligence is the understanding of that.
karmarider wrote:There also sees to be a tendency to point to other people's misery and somehow make the connection that people's misery is tied to their belief or unbelief in the LOA. Yes, people are miserable, that's why they come here to this forum. It's a wonderful thing when people begin to expose their misery here on this forum. Compassion can also understand that the exposition of misery is often fearful and angry. But to link misery or apparent happiness to belief and unbelief in the LOA--well, that's not it.
