Here you may share how the words Eckhart Tolle have affected your life.
While I can relate to a great deal of what people have said (especially the 'What friends?' remark) there are friends who will follow you into your new way of life. One of my friends -who had been suffering from severe depression - suddenly (well, it appeared to be sudden) started wanting to discuss 'my philosophies' after a long time of having an eversion to such subjects. He said he'd been forced to admit that the more I followed such philosophies the happier I seemed to be where as his philosophy of life was having the opposite effect. He's now a much happier person - despite breaking up with his long term girlfriend who didn't like how much he'd changed.
