Dragan Atanasov Tolle doesn't discourage you to think and review and use your mind for the good side of it, so don't twist his words when clearly you haven't understood his message. Tolle discourages all the suffering that the mind can produce with its constant identification with objects and content. If we constantly spend time with our mind, it is going to drive us crazy: "you didn't do this, that's why you're miserable" "you need to buy a bigger car to make yourself happy" "he did that to you so you must revenge yourself". That is what Tolle discourages and suggests we replace it with our true essence of living in the present moment, and indeed shining the light of the present moment to the mind, which constantly wants to spend its time in either the past of the future. So, before you can comment on something negatively, and interestingly enough it seems very curiously like your mind actually protesting against its demise, and you don't see that because you're deeply identified with it, you need to read and understand first. All the best!

Elaine This review reminds me how difficult the concept of presence can be when first encountered and how challenging awareness can be to entrained thinking.
