“Christ is your God-essence or the Self, as it is sometimes called in the East. The only difference between Christ and presence is that Christ refers to your indwelling divinity regardless of whether you are conscious of it or not, whereas presence means your awakened divinity or God-essence.” (Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now, p. 104)

Lighthouse Trails has posted articles about New Age guru Eckhart Tolle before (especially after the big promotion Oprah gave him a few years ago), and we find it worth noting that the visit by Tolle to Washington DC takes place the day after the first presidential debate for this election. As we have often reported, the new age/”new” spirituality permeates our Western society including those who govern our countries.

Just in time.
Spiritual celeb-guru Eckhart Tolle is appearing in Washington next week for the first time – one night after the first presidential debate, and hopefully not too late to help campaign- and conflict-weary Washingtonians achieve “freedom from excessive thinking.”
Literally millions of people studied with Tolle in 2008 via a Web series run by a little ol’ TV personality named Oprah. His book, “The Power of Now,” sold more than 3 million copies and he is as big a name as there is in what’s called the “consciousness movement” that touches people of all religious denominations (the more open wings of them, anyway).
Tolle hasn’t come to Washington before because – you’ll be SHOCKED to hear this — a spokesman says, “We don’t really think about D.C. as being about spirituality.” The Vancouver-based teacher’s typical spots include New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Miami. Click here to continue reading.
