This happens a lot, but it serves it's purpose, just like any teachings really . It doesn't matter if it's biblical teachings or non duality teachings because at some point most will question them when they have specific realizations and then they will see through them for what they are .

While someone has made an attachment to the teachings it's possible to be so entrenched in them they fail to see beyond them .

I am often seen to be the bad guy when I point things out that don't make sense or only make sense from one perspective like when adams speaks about the world being a dream and that I am is not the body and such likes . I could break down the flaws in all of these statements but most don't want to hear what I have to say because it will cause a reaction within them that will result in them questioning their devotion to their teachers .

That is their lesson either way, to be attached to something not yet realized, to blindly believe in another and perhaps live life in denial or try and emulate another's point of view by trying to walk in their shoes .

In one respect it is a very dangerous game holding onto another's perspective and try and make it their own .. I have seen that in effect and it mainly ends in disappointment, but again, that is in part, the lesson .

I was having a chat with someone the other day where niz came up and niz said that there is only how you see things, it is neither right or wrong, it is just a favoured perspective .. So perhaps one should bear that in mind when one believes in the words of another and live their life in reflection of those words ..

Then one will see that their devotion is perhaps misplaced .

I had this the other month where Tolle followers were blinded by his actions and words .. it is common for there are those that are born to follow and those that are born to lead .. Each to their own on that score ..

Will share some of the core teachings of Sri Robert Adams here

Change no one.
Change nothing.
React to no one, react to nothing.
Do not live in the past and do not worry about the future.
Stay in the eternal now, where all is well.

After all you are me and I am you.
There's no difference.
Do not react to the world.
Do not even react to your own body.
Do not even react to your own thoughts.
Learn to become the witness.
Learn to be quiet.

Robert Adams

Robert's universal message is -Immerse in "Love, Compassion & Humility" for all. For true seeking to happen "Let life flow" with gay abandon. Absorb the Universe in total Silence.
Namaskar

But, I'm not attached to him or any other master. I have got a great thirst for TRUTH. I have walked down many paths....I began reading Osho (when i was a young girl) then went through J.Krishnamurti, Thich Nhat Hanh, Eckhart Tolle and don't know how many others, attended silent Vipassana meditation retreats...and got more and more disillusioned.. but self-inquiry(atma-vichara) allowed me to go deep inside myself...allowed me to see the Truth..

His actions and words?
There is no ownership of Truth.
Truth is one, paths/teachers are many.. What is Tolle's is everybody's....
