Hello all

Very new here to the Motley Fools. I live in Canada and appear to be a minority at that.

Has anyone read Eckhart Tolles' A New Earth ?

Have read the "Health Benefits of Meditation" thread in its entirety (18 so far) with interest.

Found the comments: educational,and amusing. The intellectual exchanges plus bantering fun with words were quite entertaining.

I don't meditate, Wish I did, best I can do is practice mindfulness. That will have to do for now. Someday, hopefully it (meditation and being present) will be a subject taught in schools, far more user friendly than memorization of historical dates and events.

One important aspect of Eckhart's teachings for those not familiar is -- Strive to be in an ego free state, where judgement of any sort does not exist. I wonder in many situations what that would look like-- and in the case of this thread, I would say spirtualman who initiated this subject, but had no need to further comment epitomizes the ego less characteristic of the New Earth the average human can scarcely imagine.
