I have an ego and i am perfectly happy. If i follow his teachings i wouldn't be eating, or drinking water or anything.
The idea of life is to experience it, not run away from it!
If he doesn't have an ego why does he feel the need to be on tv teaching anything?
By saying that the idea of life is to experience it, i am saying that ego is apart of that experience.
"The unchecked striving for more, for endless growth, is a dysfunction and a disease. It is the same dysfunction the cancerous cell manifests, whose only goal is to multiply itself, unaware that it is bringing about its own destruction by destroying the organism of which it is a part." - Eckhart Tolle Page 37
I am saying that he doesn't have an ego because he claims himself a master, does he not?
Language is perceptually based. It is impossible to impose beliefs over the internet. It may be possible to suggest beliefs, or present an idea, and have a discussion on that idea?
Words reduce reality to something the human mind can grasp, which isn’t very much. Language consists of five basic sounds produced by the vocal cords. They are the vowels a, e, i, o, u. The other sounds are consonants produced by air pressure: s, f, g, and so forth. Do you believe some combination of such basic sounds could ever explain who you are, or the ultimate purpose of the universe, or even what a tree or stone is in its depth? - Eckhart Tolle
My OP is presented in question format. I guess it would be wrong to come onto a forum, dedicated to the exploration of ideas, and ask a question about an idea i have had?
It is disgusting. I am trying to show my father this. I wish i had 5 minutes on the Oprah show with Eckhart Tolle in a 1 on 1 debate about consciousness.
