Awakening to Eckhart Tolle's Teachings


For a number of years I have been familiar with Eckhart Tolle, listening online to his presentations and reading his book The Power of Now. Tolle is a German-born resident and described his childhood as unhappy—his parents fought and eventually separated. In addition he felt alienated from a hostile school environment. When he was thirteen he moved to Spain and lived with his father, who did not insist he attend high school. Instead, Tolle studied literature, astronomy, and various languages at home. When he was fifteen he read several books by Joseph Anton Schneiderranken—a German mystic—and responded very deeply to those books. Tolle was depressed for much of his life, until he was twenty-nine and experienced an “inner transformation”; for several years he wandered in a state of deep bliss.

IS YOUR EGO TOO BIG?

6blog A

These days it is not unusual for people to talk about the ego—a term somewhat related to narcissism. When a person seems too self-centered he/she may be cited as having too big an ego. The fact of the matter is that ego has two important jobs: it is the internal organizer of our personality and helps us survive through its ability to think, evaluate, and prioritize. Furthermore the ego has as much growing up to do as our physical selves and research indicates this involves traversing ten stages. (Loevinger, J. & Wessler, R., 1970.)
