Tolle offers good stuff because he plagerizes good stuff, mouthing echoing writers and teachers before him... Zen is great stuff but Eckhardt doesn't come into it in any way... Zen covered the power of Now before Eck's parents left their diapers...
You seem troubled, my son. Just kidding. I have been jealous of Tolle at times too. Read 'Power of Now' in India, and it saw me through challenging times. Really, what works are not re-written from earlier wisdom. There is no new thing under the sun.
Tolle is a popularizer. There's nothing wrong with that. I've chosen to work directly with the original sources, who are available in the Zen community. But if you take a teacher, choose wisely, and you don't need one!
Emanate,I won't comment on whether two assumptions you make are correct,I will merely point out that they indeed are assumptions,and don't confused the "assumed" with "what is".1.that I am jealous of Tolle too 2.There is no new thing under the sun.

For a time I picked up on what someone told me, that he called his ego 'Igor.' A little humor doesn't hurt. I prefer drawing upon the inner counselor as it is more self-contained, self-responsible and leads to psycho-spiritual maturity. It is innate.
