Eckhart Tolle writes about metaphysics in regular modern-day terms without attaching religion to it. As a result, people don’t feel dragged down. In A New Earth, he disentangles the ego and its nature and describes how it struggles to hold itself together. He writes about the one-upmanship, needing to be the one who knows — all the ways we strengthen the ego. These are essential things, and Tolle writes about them in a very accessible way.
If people read his writing together, it would be impossible to continue doing some of the terrible things we do for the sake of ego. I think the whole world should sit down and read A New Earth together. There would be no Israelis vs. the Palestinians if we all read this book. We would have to stop pretending, stop defending our own personal stories.
