Understanding the Life and Teachings of Eckhart Tolle on Consciousness and Spirituality
By Dr. Ruth Carr
Eckhart Tolle is one of the most influential spiritual teachers to have ever walked the planet. This is a man who has such a deep connection with consciousness that he has developed the ability to understand how to teach other people to reach the same level of consciousness. There are many distinct benefits that can come as a result of Eckhart’s teachings and there has never been a more fitting time in the history of humanity for the reception of these teachings than right now.
Eckhart did not have an easy life growing up and much of his problems were the result of depression. He taught himself about consciousness and enlightenment in an attempt to end the suffering of his depression, but taking in this information was not enough to stop Eckhart’s pain. Then one night, he experienced a life changing event which brought him instant clarity and enlightenment.
