Holiday man – Eckhart Tolle

Holiday man – Eckhart Tolle

The feeling I get when I watch Eckhart Tolle is a holiday feeling, a “now” feeling, the kind that we usually get on our holidays. Holidays are for many of us the time for “now”, time to allow for things to manifest, we want to get a taste of everything, we are present.
When I first stumble into Eckhart Tolle it was on a period of my life when my chances to become a homeless where the biggest ever. Those who lived in an ex-communist country during the recession, know what I am talking about. I was working all day, all week and every single minute in the day was a struggle, a negotiation with life for allowance. Every minute of every day, every skill and knowledge had to be efficiently used. A battle field with no physical weapons and no times out. Someone told me about his book, or I just found it on the internet, I don’t remember. What I do remember is that in all the mess around me and inside me, in all the madness, a colleague said: “Why don’t you just sit and read it if you like it so much?” And I sat and I did. And the world and the time vanished from around the busy Grivitei Boulevard in Brasov and ‘The power of now’ took the place of everything.
