19 Nov Holiday man – Eckhart Tolle
The feeling I get when I watch Eckhart Tolle is a holiday feeling, is a strong “now” feeling, the kind that we usually get in our holidays. On holiday it’s for many of us the time for “now”, when we 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. Who lived in an ex-communist country during the recession, knows 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. I’ve had many days without lunch during that time. Someone told me about him, or I just found him on the internet, I don’t remember. What I do remember is that in all the mess around 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 did. One afternoon was spent in front of my computer, on my desk, at work, on Grivitei Boulevard, in Brasov, reading “The power of now”. The time had stopped for me that afternoon and I was nourished.
