Eckhart Tolle’s spiritual transformation came in the midst of a deep psychological crisis – his dark night of the soul. No way out of life as he knew it, no relief in life or its opposite. In the depths of this dark night he saw his Light. It reminds me of the truth that you can’t get there from here — when life is a polarity, when we are backed into the far end of a pole and we loath its opposite — we can’t get free by embracing the opposite, or moving the middle. We see only a line, and then our Source shows us a triangle. I think our species is in its own dark night of the soul. We really can’t go on as we have been. Yesterday I watched James Hansen’s TED talk “Why I must speak out about climate change”. Today I saw a trailer on Spiritbath for a film called “The Shift”. I don’t know what form the change will take, but I do know that we can’t get there from here. We must transform if we are to have a future.
