Today I want to explore the teachings of Eckhart Tolle. His teachings that centre around being deeply PRSENT in your life, so as to be able to ACCEPT reality for how it is, as a way of transcending suffering. I want to look at Eckhart Tolle as a person as well, as one who deeply seems to embody this transcended peace he talks about in his work - ad whether this is truly a result of him 'accepting reality' or if there is actually more to it.
I want to explore whether he is teaching from transcendence or from trauma.
If his method of connecting with real reality and then working to ACCEPT everything for exactly how it is, a tool for true spiritual enlightenment, or if it's a way of avoiding reality.
Also you can find a much longer blog post that I have written on this subject here:
