I'm glad that Eckhart Tolle has a positive effect on you. Some people, like Andy (who wrote the opening post), seem to get ego-phobia or mind-phobia from listening to Tolle, which IMO is linked to shortcomings in his teachings. But of course there are more aspects to his teachings, some of which may be helpful for some people. I guess just like a vest, a teacher can fit one person and not another, and you can grow into or out of their size and style. There's no "one size fits all" spiritual teacher.
Coming back to Eckhart Tolle. I trust him, because - he is very good, and kind man, because in the now, I'm experiencing inner bliss. Because in the now, I can appreciate by all my heart, beauty of the nature, I'm so in love in the nature, I wasted too much of my life about thinking,instead of loving the nature - the truest miracle.
I know what you mean! When your state of mind isn't dominated by conceptual thought, bliss is often inevitable. Bliss seems to be an inherent property of life, we just don't see it when our attention is occupied by concept.
But I experience another side too, that I don't hear much about in spiritual circles: a field of suffering/despair. When I'm tuned into that, it feels like I'm in touch with the suffering of all lifeforms. I guess it's the other side of the coin. It used to be that when I felt this all around me and inside me, I took it personally, I thought up reasons that justified why I personally felt this sad. But now, I just accept that this feeling isn't the result of whatever personal reason I can come up with, it's just part of life, and I lovingly accept it. Then it's okay. Then it helps me be more compassionate. I think you can't be fully compassionate with other beings unless you feel and share their pain.
