He looks like an elf.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

Who is Eckhart Tolle?

He wrote A New Earth, a vapid New Age thing that Oprah really liked. Sold a gerjillion copies. Has very vague advice about meditation and 'being in the moment.'

I wasn't aware there was anything to discuss about Eckhart Tolle. ::)

The best episode of Oprah was where you had the Greek Orthodox priest and the Roman Catholic priest yelling at each other about feces.

I rant about him from time to time, largely because the Greek cathedral up the road from me teaches his dross.
If anything I have posted has been illuminating, please remember that I merely reflect the light of others...but also it's me.
