The intention of this thread is to discussion Eckhart Tolle’s books, The Power Of Now and A New Earth and other information and views on “living in the present.”
Below some excerpts of a conversation brought forward from the Atheist & Agnostics-Hi there! thread.
This post is out of sync. It is here for someone who wants to get started on the Tolle/Oprah material.
EVERYONE~ No matter what spiritual/religious/non-spiritual/non-religious belief one is, one can benefit from the information and it won’t conflict with your current path or lead you to another path. I believe this (as well as other similar teachings) reach beyond our differences to our shared humanity. This might be the structure to how all of us (those interested) can create a common place from where we can unite and work together to make a world that works for everyone. Each person different, working towards benefiting humanity. As aspire mentioned, the synergistic results of Oprah and Tolle combining efforts far out reaches what they could have done individually. The possibilities for all of us are mind blowing when we work together.
If you are wondering if this is for you, here are a few links to explore:
Meditating~ Way cool! I only have A New Earth. I got it when I heard about Oprah’s course. Here are a few links that you might find useful:
If I remember correctly, before the class was available, Oprah suggested reading the book through first, then expanding one’s understanding through the classes. However, there is not “right” way.
No I’m not an expert on this, just a struggling “classmate.” Yes, I’m a bit anal… Yes, there are other links I didn’t include. I hope you find this useful.
