There is a lot of falsehoods stated above about Eckhart Tolle.
Having researched his material, its clear what he is doing.
Tolle is ironically, an Egomaniac, who wants a captive audience to listen to his endless New Agey pontificating, and to send him loads of money, for his endless products.
Notice how Tolle does NOT want close personal contact with his followers, just a one-way street from Tolle to Tolle-TV, through hs products.
He wanted to make millions, and to feel like an "intellectual" with a captive audience of followers.
He just copied others material, and put new wrapping paper on it.
He has a fake name. He is a businessman.
He appears to have schizoidal [www.mentalhealth.com
] tendencies, and he has a strong desire to be the Guru, the Leader, and to have his followers admire him from afar.
There have been dozens of threads about Tolle here, exposing what he is all about.
