Oh yes, Eckhart Tolle. He helps me deal with my constant problem (anxiety disorder) about what the future holds. I am a spiritual searcher without the religion. Searching for the things that we as people and other creation in the world have in common. This condition. Compassion.

Hope156 - glad you find some solace in his works - you have a goal like mine, compassion even for myself and those who think differently. MY OPEN HEART is a good book on developing compassion through daily practice.

Yes I am. I'm reading his first book POWER OF NOW and I've read his 2nd book NEW EARTH. I also have his 3rd book STILLNESS SPEAKS.

I'm also a big fan of Dr. Wayne Dyer and his books.

MY OPEN HEART sounds good. The Dahli Lhama wrote a book called Compassion. Loved that. Anyone read any of the books by Pema Chodron? Please know I am not writing about religion, just about love and compassion.

Yup. I am too. Tolle is my favorite spiritual teacher. He makes most sense. I don't accept 100% of what he says though, but that's my thing with any spiritual teacher. None of them is a "guru" to me but just a person with valuable insights that I can use. Overall, I resonate with his teachings more than any others.

it's tricky to say someone is "a Buddhist". following the teachings of the Buddha Sidharta is a practice, not a religion, in all truth. if a person is diligent and sincere, s/he will come to know the truth and meaning of a teaching for themself. if they are then also a gifted teacher in their own right, they will share what they have seen/learned/experienced with others in a way that resonates with the times/culture in which they live. this, we say, is a person who follows the teachings of the Buddha.

I have the Power of Now on Audibles. I put it down for a while, but I am thinking of picking it back up again. I may do it tonight.
