Eckhert Tolle got wide recognition for his book that made the Oprah Book Club called Awakening to Your Life's Purpose. I have to admit to not getting through the whole thing. It is supposed to give you what Oprah called "Aha Moments" and lead you to be your authentic self. He has also written "The New Earth" I guess you could understand his take better if you read some excerpts because my understanding is minimal.
I find it a lot like "The Purpose Driven Life"and "Who Moved My Cheese". I find them too simplistic, perhaps, as you say, not scientific enough. I tend to be skeptical of popular movement books but as you can see, I tried them in an attempt to understand what others were seeing. I failed. :/ I think there is probably some benefit is hearing/reading obvious truths being presented in a new light so that perhaps it helps with understanding oneself and life. I just don't always appreciate it.
In human affairs, I am shocked by lack of planning! My psychologist wants me to be more spontaneous. Similarly, he urges me to do things socially. And I occasionally go out on socialistic errands with a fellow party member.
