A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose – Day One

Spiritual development is a life long process which requires both commitment and a willingness to be open to new ideas. An amazing teacher, Eckhart Tolle’s book A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose is a must read if spiritual development is a priority in your life. To encourage others (the two who read this new blog….) and as a way to process my own thoughts, the next few posts will be dedicated to this book and my experience with Oprah’s online class. To start out, here are some quotes from his book to wet your spiritual appetite:

“When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago when humanity, instead of using thought, became possessed by thought.”

“One thing we do know: Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness”.

“Ego is always identification with form, seeking yourself and thereby losing yourself in some form”.

It feels difficult to expound on Eckhart’s ideas, and give them justice. At this point, I am simply absorbing the experience.
