Eckhart Tolle

Happy Spring! (almost!)

As I know some of you are involved with self development and open to many ideological approaches to your life, I'd like to share a book with you that a friend of mine just gave me. It's called "A NEW EARTH" by the same guy who wrote "THE POWER OF NOW" - Eckhart Tolle.


I just learned last week as I began this book that Oprah is doing a free online 10 week seminar with Mr. Tolle about the ideas he presents in his new book. Last week was the first week of the seminar and it was the largest interactive web event in the history of the internet. If you're interested in learnign more, you can log on to Oprah's website at http://event.oprah.com/videochannel/event/event_landing.html?promocode=HP11

The classes are every monday at 9/8 C (Click here to find out what time that is for you), or you can download previous classes and watch them on your computer or Ipod at your convenience.



Take care of each other!


All Things Possible,

Chris

    What an energizing topic for springing forth!
    It's amazing what an extra hour of daylight does for our soul.
    I haven't read this Eckhart Tolle book yet, but have enjoyed him on a documentary called "Living Luminaries"....and the book is on my list. I've also enjoyed over the winter reading Jackie Lapin's "The Art of Conscious Creation, How You Can Heal the World" -- which expands on The Secret and has evolved into an organization, United World Healing, which seems to hold lots of potential for individuals coming together to change lives and create a better, more peaceful world. Imagine your life purpose being to help shape the future of the planet. I feel this is the direction Tolle and many other great teachers are urging.

    Seems as though finding your life purpose is on everyone's collective mind these days. My daughter mentioned that recently. "Everyone's looking for their life purpose," she said, "even we are." And I think it changes as your life changes. Rather it evolves. And I think we're attracted to the avenues and the people who will help each other carry out their divine purpose. I think the more we learn to use our inner guidance (our own personal GPS) and enhance our intuitive abilities, the more we'll be drawn to our life purpose. And the more you get into doing that, the more fun you have following the path of your purpose.

    Kind of looks like this is an enormous topic, with that big picture of the book here. Here's a beautiful way to look at your life purpose. Thought I'd share this website of ATP topics and quotes...thinkArete.com ("concentrated wisdom for the busy self-actualizer). That, of course, would be all of you in the very busy, active forum family. And the other day they put up my favorite quote by one of the ATP authors Chris told us about once, James Allen: “The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.”

    And the question following was: So, what are you dreaming of today?

    Wishing you all time to dream, and to discover the life purpose that awaits within...Sue

    Hey Chris and Sue and everone else in the Forum Family,

    hope this finds you all well and that you are not suffering too much from the weather. I saw on the news the damage a storm did in Atlanta...

    Thanks for pointing that book out to us, Chris, looks intriguing. I am especially happy that the downloads from Oprah are also available to people outside the US, because often that is not the case. I just downloaded the transcript of the first two installments to take on the train with me tomorrow morning.

    Thanks for your input, Sue. Actually, I am not a big fan of daylight saving time. If you leave the house as early as I do, you begin to enjoy that it is light already now, and then all of a sudden it is dark again. I also find it confusing still, every time we have to set the clocks forth or back. But, we still have two weeks of "normal" time here.

    Have a great week you all, leading up to Easter!

    Big hugs,

    Ute

    Hi Ute and all the forum family...
    The weather has been pretty good here. Snow finally gone, except in our wooded area...still a remnant of winter. Heard about the tornadoes down south, and it was only just last October we were talking here on the forum about the tornado here. That's one thing about spring I can do without. They are still fairly unusual over there, right? So, Dave the snow was probably gone when you returned from the southwest! And, Tim, nice weather for dog shows! And Patrick, if you're there, I know they're talking about the blood drives so necessary this spring.

    Well, I'll report that I did get a copy of the book, so I can keep up with you all. And got an extra one for our daughter. A friend of mine had mentioned the book last month, that she is reading it. Should be interesting to see the effect. Whatever Oprah puts her intention/attention on seems to affect the planet. Not sure I'll have time to do the ten-week thing, since I have so many projects going on. Don't watch Oprah...not enough time...but will keep tuned in through the forum.

    Ute, I agree. The thing about daylight saving is, you're only saving it later. And I have a hard time getting up when it's dark out. So I understand your point. I guess the reason they do that here is for earlier daylight in the winter for the children going to school? At least I think that's it. Probably someone knows and can set me straight.

    Well, whatever your daylight hours, everyone....may they be filled with beautiful light and beautiful Irish rainbows! I sent this e-greeting to some friends. Love the wishes....so I'll send them to all of you. Think the sentiment kind of goes along with Chris' topic:
    "May your life be long. May your heart be true. May your path be clear and your skies be blue. May your soul be happy, and your spirit light. May you know great joy. May your dreams take flight. Wishing you a world of wonderful things this St. Patrick's Day"...Sue

    Oh, and I meant to say we saw Michael Clayton the other night and really enjoyed it. Great film.
