Is Oprah And Tolle’s Awakening A Cult?

April 23rd, 2008 · 3 Comments · Main

There are people saying that Oprah Winfrey and Eckhart Tolle author of The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment and A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose (Oprah’s Book Club, Selection 61) are leaders of the largest religious cult in the world.

Others go so far as to call Oprah and Eckhart Tolle the anti Christ.

Come on…. Are they serious?

It’s true that Oprah does have a large following of fans and she is very influential and powerful.

I find Oprah at times to be loud and arrogant.

I often disagree with what she is saying.

But Oprah is not a cult leader.

Eckhart Tolle is simply a popular author who touched on a niche topic that the world was ready to hear with his best selling book “The Power of Now”.

Eckhart Tolle states that he does not want to be a guru or change anyones faith or religion.

Tolle is merely offering his philosophy on how we can live more full and successful lives by cherishing the present moment.

There is an old saying heard at Alcohol Anonymous meetings… The saying is “take what you need and leave the rest.”

While listening to the Oprah Tolle webinar you may want to take what you need and leave the rest.

Or if the Oprah and Tolle New Earth Awakening seminar really bothers you just don’t listen.

On the other hand if the Free Oprah and Tolle New World Awakening webinar is helping you to find success in life you can get caught up and download free MP3’s or PDF’s of Oprah and Tolles Free World Wide webinar by going to the following link:

The following video has been viewed over 5 million times on You Tube and is from a group that says that Oprah and Tolle are cult leaders of the largest religion in the world.

What do you think?

Are Oprah and Tolle religious cult leaders?

    Nice post and great blog. If what he was saying wasn’t so valuable I might agree with the cult idea.

    All religions started as a cult, including Christianity, and look how dogmatic and selfrighteous they are and the conflicts they create.
    There is no dogma in what Eckhart Tolle is teaching that you must follow to awaken, it’s up to you to find out for yourself the validity of the experience. A choice is only a choice if you have tried the options and know the difference. Once we know the difference between freedom and slavery, who would choose slavery?

    Long live the freedom to choose.

    I like what you said about take what you want and leave the rest. Thats exactly what everyone should do. I studied Objectivism, the philosophy of Ayn Rand, and tried to apply its principles or whatever insights I drew from it, to my own life. Only the stuff that made sense has stuck and continues to be integrated into anything else I’ve allowed myself to be open to.

    I’ve recently begun to explore less dogmatic and less ‘new agey’ spiritual teachings…for all I know it could all be a bunch of bullshit put out so we could buy more books and audio CD’s. But from what I’ve seen so far, Tolle isn’t the only one trying to point to something for us…others such as Byron Katie or Adyashanti are also trying to point us in the same direction (but with their own unique style).
