For starters read that - it's not long- and think about the implications regarding this claim of "Being" as the highest reality. Thanks Johnny, That was a great read.

Hey Greg, There is a higher reality beyond body and mind, which is called God by religions. Eckhart Tolle prefers not to use the word ‘God’ because the word is misused for years and the moment we start with that word, we start with a bias or pre-judgements. He calls this higher reality as ‘Being’. B...
When I was young I thought I could parachute from the roof of our house with a shopping bag. That was The Art of Going Splat. :rolleye: I did that one too! What about killing yourself on BMX bikes? I started out on one of these before getting a proper BMX. The outcome was the same though. 30 years ...
I don't believe the Buddha ever used the word god or suffering as he did not speak English, the sutras have been translated. But thanks for providing all the links to those sutras, they are always a good read.gregkavarnos wrote:Your point being?lowlydog wrote:translated from the Pali by

Yes, many, but the word god is not used. Do you know a sutra where the Buddha used the word suffering?Astus wrote:Do you know of a sutra where the Buddha talks about God?
As I said, if that ultimate level cannot be told or described there is nothing to talk about.
To lie is to deliver a false statement to another person which the speaking person knows is not the whole truth, intentionally.gregkavarnos wrote: In which case, even in lies there is Dharma?
You can answer your own question.

it's got nothing to do with truth and less and everything to do with opinions (on both sides). Some believe Tolle has a message of truth, some do not. In both cases it is a matter of karmic predisposition. We are all at different places on the path and come from different backgrounds, but it has ev...
2. Buddhism has no God nor does it consider any natural law ultimate. Based on point 1 it follows that: 3. Since you cannot believe in truth you cannot tell what truth is, neither can one know what some other people experience, making truth completely incommunicable and subjective. 4. Since truth c...
Dear lowlydog, i commend your effort and interest to bring light to Tolle into this forum,but alas i'm afraid your effort will be in vain as there is a hard wall of ignorance it seem :( http://youtu.be/uUryeDLpY_c" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Never under estimate the power of the ...
Hi Astus, I'm hoping that this clip from his book will answer your questions. :smile: Says the same thing as the short quote. 1. Those who believe that their truth is the real truth are wrong. 2. The truth is universal. 3. The universal truth is what Tolle thinks is the truth. 4. Tolle's truth is s...
That's a good motivation. Whose suffering? The main question I put to the board (I don't mean to put lowlydog on the spot here) is still open: how does Tolle teach the motivation to practice? Is there anything like a bodhisattva's intention in Tolle's doctrine? There is suffering. When the wisdom o...
