Sum and Substance: The spiritual path of presence, according to Eckhart Tolle, can be enriched and deepened by knowing ourselves as consciousness, realizing the depth of life, evolving beyond thought, becoming aware of stillness, discovering inner space, living in alignment with what is, tapping into the power of nature to reconnect with being, and finding freedom with acceptance. Tolle's admiration for the spiritual insights of Ralph Waldo Emerson is fascinating.
