  1. Eckhart Tolle is the most profound and gifted man I have had the extreme pleasure of following. Simple put, his teachings have changed my life. I am eternally grateful.

  2. One more supposed “spiritual guru” who has taken his spin on ancient teachings (not a single original thought in his books) and reworked them so westerners can understand them. Then he pocketed $80 million. I guess his ego needs 80 million reasons to keep teaching.

  3. Spiritual teachings are almost always derivative. “Spiritual Teachers” who demonstrate something actually original, or at least unique in expression, are extremely rare. A rare example of this is Ramana Maharshi. Such rare figures almost never identify themselves, or even behave, as spiritual teachers. And insofar as they do, they always recognize and pay homage to those Masters of the past, and express emotional love and reverence for those Masters whose lives earlier expressed the ancient teachings. Most true Spiritual Masters would NEVER simply remodel and regurgitate ancient teachings as their own, and most of them have always walked the earth unknown and promoting no “teachings” whatever. If devotees and structures do surround them, examination of their lives will reveal that at no point did these true ones exercise influence or intent to manage or create such organizational structures.

    May we transcend the Posers. Honor, love and devotion to all the Unknown Masters.
