In the video, I explore how Tolle points towards the transcendence of the ego via a whole acceptance of life as it is, while Peterson focuses more on the acceptance of suffering as a way to build character and garden the ego’s excesses.

Ultimately, both show us how we must accept suffering to overcome it, yet where Tolle points to a sacred bliss at the root of our being, Peterson points more towards the framework of Judeo-Christian culture and society as a safety valve on political and personal extremism.
