first off i love eckhart tolle and enjoyed this entire audiobook... but did anyone else hear the annoying guy in the background at the retreat laughing louder than an ass after everything tolle says? the first 4 hours i was like totally accepting the "isness" of the idiot but i really think, after 10 hours of hearing his dramatic reply to every single thing tolle says, i actually felt his incessant laughter was to ridicule and dismiss anything being talked about... who knows. who cares.
there are many moments where tolle makes hilarious jokes and you hear the entire retreat audience laughing and i laugh as well but this guy is seriously stoned or something. i think tolle may have addressed it by pointing out how some zenned out monks laugh at most things they hear, which i guess is his acceptance and alertness to his surroundings (lots of "students" and one noisy monkey).
i still loved "the journey into yourself" and was eventually able to pay no mind to the audible annoyances in listening to an audiobook to learn to pay no mind to such things... but it's actually totally annoying to listen to a 10 hour unabridged audiobook by a genius and hear some drunk heckler buzzing in every 20 seconds, my thanks to the peanut gallery!
