So I’ve started reading ‘The New Earth’, Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose, by Eckhart Tolle. It’s currently Oprah’s selection for her book club and she’s also hosting an online class with the author, starting on March 3rd. I haven’t decided if I’m going to register for the class or not- sometimes you just have to know when you can’t add one more thing to your plate.

Anyways, so far the book is very interesting. I haven’t gotten too far into it yet, but am enjoying it. It goes a little deeper than a lot of books out there in regards to finding your purpose or life’s passion. The beginning of the book talks about the history of consciousness and different religions. Having become more interested in some eastern philosophies, it was good to see the reference to the Tao Te Ching, by Lao Tzu. Tolle says that Lao Tzu was before his time and that the time for this type of consciousness is now. Without making it sound like work, you definitely need to be in the mood to focus on what you’re reading with this book.

Last thought on this book for today is a quote that I liked from the first chapter. “You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge.” E. Tolle, The New Earth, Plume, 2006.
