Roxanne, good reminder for all of us as to our need to love and care for other people, all people, and I do believe that as an inner transformation occurs this can in fact become our life's work. You say that "Tolle understands the personal part of the spiritual journey", and I agree that is true. In fact spiritual by definition is just that, it is within, internal and not external. The first definition is "Of, relating to, consisting of, or having the nature of spirit; not tangible or material." A person who is spiritual can then go into the world and make a difference for all the right reasons. Then the "New Earth" becomes a possibility.
