Finding Your Life’s Purpose: Today

The nurturing essence of both Eckharts written work and the podcasts offered through Oprah’s online class provide spiritual substance for one’s soul. The contents, encased in the decorated pages of A New Earth: Finding Your Life’s Purpose, encapsulate illuminating spiritual elements in such a way that they are easily consumed. Continuing the process of consciouses living and remaining aware of the ego’s presence once the pages have been discarded is a key ingredient in your spiritual development.

Fundamental in the pursuit of finding one’s purpose, is the realization that you are not your ego. During moments of turmoil and pain, when the ego is weighing on your consciousness, awareness can liberate the energy which is you, allowing the present moment to shine through.

Life presents unanticipated and unwanted experiences to everyone. Expressing themselves in the form of relationships, roles, possessions, health changes and so much more, human beings conceptualize these experiences through internally generated mechanisms. Holding on to any form of these concepts as they vanish into the present moment can ignite great anguish. As Eckhart points out however, “the primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but our thoughts about it”. When conceptualized by the ego, our thoughts desperately cling to forms which are believed to be defining. Unable to hold on, the loss of these forms leave the ego vulnerable and exposed, ready to cover itself in the next form that it discovers. Free yourself from form, under which the ego hides, “for when you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life”.
