Gotta pay the toll, eh? For the Eckhart Tolle High Way! Guaranteed to get you to the Present Moment as soon as right NOW! Funny, we're already here. Wow :)

Tolle is a great teacher. I feel like he intentionally holds back at times, in order to not confuse or overwhelm his mainstream audience, but I have no doubt that he had a genuine awakening and is a legit teacher.

The more aware you become, the more Eckhart’s teachings start to make sense. If you’re trying to lift yourself out of a depression or bad spell though, I don’t think his advice is very helpful because it can lead you down the path of ignoring your emotions by artificially trying to let go - you can only truly let go of the past and negativity if you feel these emotions. You will let go when you are ready to and shouldn’t try to force it too much. Some people also fall into the trap of trying too hard not to think.
