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.
Quote
But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D'Urbervilles

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.
