Yes I too have read this. Its called something like The Time Trap, trapped in time, falling into time, not free. Freedom is only found in the Now, because the Now is timeless I was asked once to point to the time when the Now begins and the Now ends...I could not because just as I thought I'd caught the start of the Now it was no longer the Now, it had become past. The Now is timeless because it has no beginning and no end. When I was told that my mind stood still it just could not work it out. When I'm in the Now I have no depression, no anxiety, no worries of any kind, then if I feel myself falling back into time I bring myself back. Eckhart says that once you have realized your not in the Now your actually back in the Now

I have the greatest respect for Eckhart Tolle he has helped me through his teachings to deal with a very over active mind constantly trying to pull me into the past/future. I did join one of his local groups about two years ago which gave me access to his many DVD's and fellow seekers, however I had to leave as it became more tea, cakes and chat than meditation and teachings!!!!
