According to your model everything is perfect - that would have to include Tolle's modern expression of Essential truth.andy wrote:Who is Tolle to present to me the current state of humanity? What is is, it is an expression of the divine -- it is perfect. Yet why judge it? Everything will unfold as it is meant to, without creating another religion out of it.
And why judge it indeed? Rather see Tolle's offerings as written for an evolving consciousness - just the latest expression of the DIvine to assist its millions of human expressions in finding their way home. Human consciousness has many diverse perspectives on the nature of life. In the perfection of a system designed to offer insight in returning to awareness of our True Nature, Tolle's version is just one among many. Why should we judge one path over another simply because it's similar to long existing directives.
Tolle's works have proven value. What any given human, who has benefitted by his teachings, has paid in monetary value for access to his insights, pales in comparison to experiential value received in return. Am I a Tolle groupie? Hardly. But I owe him a debt of gratitude for pointing me to a Truth that I'd been missing (in spite of 30 years of searching), and that has brought more clarity and meaning to my life than I ever knew before.
Arguments discounting the value of Tolle's teachings are like arguments discounting the beauty of a sunrise simply because there was one yesturday.
