Because I, too, am moving to a new house, I stopped to listen to your interview of Tolle. I agree with his emphasis on the now and all the rest, but I found myself thinking I was listening to "Speaking of Psychology," not "...of Faith." Nearly everything he said I've heard before from counselors, therapists, or pop psychology writings, give or take a dash of Buddhism here and there. I'm happy for his personal enlightenment, I'm glad that he's helping others, I'll be better for thinking of the "now"...but I can't call Tolle a spiritual leader. Perhaps anything we devote ourselves to can be considered a spiritual practice; I'd call exercise mine. But calling these things issues of faith? I can't buy that--neither now, nor later.
