Echart Tolle

I arrived to the The curator cafe   to be greeted by  indiscreet  mumbling …as i sat down a particularily nervous group turned around   and could be heard to suggest  ..”.I think that is him !.”..being mildly asbergers and vain  i thought only the best of this crowd sourced insinuation ….    I  smiled   and was to discover later this  was considered a taunt …as i slurped   my blend  ethiopa.costa rica. panama….ummm… a small man with a glib look joined me at the table …”No one likes a smart arse”   ”  thats fine i am not here to be liked  just coffee thanks ”  he reached over and tugged the hair on my forearm …”ouch !”   “People say you think happiness is the cause of western societys  discontentment ”  “well if you read the bible  particulary the book of JOB you would find  that devil  takes the form of an accuser on the council of angels  ..pointing out humanities failings  ”  ” what are you saying ?  ”  ” you might be the devil echart!  ”   i had recognised his face  from the his merchandise on sale in town  ..”   Echart  for a happy man can get very cross… he was furious  so much so he needed a double shot in his mini mocha …  the crowd  were aghast  mainly because of the new expression on echarts  visage …he was decidedly discontented …..  you  cant call erchart tolle the devil !    Again  my vainity overtook  social graces  and my tirade began  “….he is making people so unhappy  ….parents are so mindful  that children go to school in flip flops  living solely on pitta bread and hommus … both he and Antony robbins  have got us so fixed on the “now ” we have forgotten the past and couldnt care about the future ….total silence …echart wass whimpering  … the waiter walks over  “Its best you leave  now ” …not finished  ” how the hell can anyone truly be mindful  when  your out of your heads on triple espressos four times aday …”    the six psychotherapists in the corner started handing out their business cards ..”  thanks maurice see you next week  ” with a knowing wink
