Anyone heard of him? He’s the author of The Power of Now and A New Earth. Oprah was all about him for a while. He’s a spiritualist/philosopher who stresses the importance of living in the present moment if one wants to be at peace.
I was personally very into his writings for a while and I feel I have gotten what I wanted out of them. I feel you can’t focus too much on his teachings after you’ve grasped the concepts already, otherwise it defeats the purpose and distracts you from simply living your life. But I do think he does have a lot to offer and I very much agree with his philosophy on life, since I held similar views even before I heard of him. It is true he is recycling a lot of Eastern teachings, but at the same time he’s coming from a completely different angle and explaining it in such a way that the common man can understand.
If anyone has heard of him, I’d be interested to hear your thoughts.
