Eckhart Tolle has achieved a peaceful state of being. Along with that he has achieved personal success. It would seem that Eckhart, on occasion, has made errors in certain statements regarding Buddhism. One, that I recall, was how Buddhism prejudices women. I'm not sure where Eckhart got this from but Shakyamuni allowed women to join his monastic. His own aunt became a nun. He, in my opinion, makes other errors regarding Buddhism. Another oddity was his teaching of a new movement on Earth, that is, humanity finally becoming enlightened in a big way. The human condition, to me, seems anything but enlightened, nor is it headed this way. I thought that maybe he knows as this sort of thing is what he does for a living. At the end of the listen he is interviewed. The interviewer must have picked this up too as she asks Eckhart the very same question. She is also doubtful of humanity becoming enlightened. Eckhart responded that it may just be that he is thinking this because he sees so many people that seem to be making a change for the better and that maybe humanity on a whole is not really becoming any more enlightened, peaceful, etc. This, I believe, was an honest answer from Eckhart. I do believe he has attained a certain level of enlightenment and this listen is pleasant if nothing else. His popularity, at least in part, seems to come from his simple, peaceful way. Namaste!
Eckhart 's talks are simply powerful and these talks are not "easy listening" for entertainment. They are enthralling if one is willing to really hear what is being said.
I enjoyed listening to this recording and will listen to it again and again. More of my questions were answered by Eckhart and I now have a clearer understanding of what presence is and is not.
Its like all of his other books and lectures always eye opening and wonderful. I highly recommend everything he has produced.
I always love his work. If The world perceived life the way he does, it would be a much more peaceful and wonderful world to live in! At least my Life and happiness has improved because of his work. I encourage others to at least try reading his work and I hope that they can at least find some form of improvement in their lives
IT's recorded at live event or at his home. Too much back ground noise.
More professional. Should read the book instead of lecture.
Use the voice of a professional reader.
New material and not the same as previous works. I'm a big fan of his work but this book was more of the old.
Narrator was good.
Needs new material.
