Like empathy or telepathy? I would imagine so with all that "space". He said he heard a woman's thought during a lecture, once.

Heard the story about the two monks trying to cross a river?

Two monks are waiting for the boat to take them across the river. Soon the boat came. Suddenly the elder monk jumped into the river. With his psychic power he drifted on the surface of water and crossed the river quickly. The younger monk took the boat and crossed the river slowly. After that, he gave the boatman a penny for the fare.

The elder monk showed his self satisfaction and said arrogantly to the younger monk, "What have you attained after you cultivated the past few years? See, I have attained the psychic power."

The younger monk did not care what the other monk asked and replied, "Oh, it is just worth a penny!"

Whether it is real or not, whether you or anyone got it or not, just know that psychic power will not help anyone realize liberation. It will only sidetrack you away from discovering your true self for it will only enhance your sense of separateness. Egotism is what you will end up with.

I have no answer for the original question.
This however intrigued me -
Whether it is real or not, whether you or anyone got it or not, just know that psychic power will not help anyone realize liberation. It will only sidetrack you away from discovering your true self for it will only enhance your sense of separateness. Egotism is what you will end up with.

... Empathy = The ability to understand and share the feelings of another.

How could empathy 'enhance your sense of separateness?'
Surely if one has liberation and knowledge of everyone's 'true self' empathy would be a given.

Projecting egotism onto empathy is just a bit strange to me.
Just my penny's worth.

Listened to batgap.com interview of Francis Lucille today. very nice.
they were talking about "sitis" - and Francis said something like this: "They are not 'so and so's' powers. They are God's powers. .... I like to call them miracles. .... When a miracle happens, it is God winking at you saying, 'It's ok. I'm here.'"

So no, Tolle doesn't "have" anything. God does.
