i was watching to eckhard tolle mombai talk , power of now, first session and he mention this very nice 'there is a danger of adding a new egoistic state in spiritual practice and cultivate it for 20 30 years' and also 'become friend with present moment'.
He should know.
Its not that i know enough about him to necessarily agree, but doggone it, that was funny
