DISCONNECT FROM THE EGO AND SET YOURSELF FREE
Make the transition from adversity to awakening
In her introductory Lifeclass, Oprah explains how one of the proudest moments of her career was to introduce Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose to the world. Eckhart would like to invite you to continue the journey you have started in Oprah’s Lifeclass through a free introduction to his teachings.
In her Lifeclass, Oprah describes one of Eckhart Tolle’s core messages: the ego is a false sense of self. Any time you are out of alignment with your true consciousness, you are acting out of ego. When we go through difficult times, both on our own and as a community, we are sometimes at a loss as to what to do next. This is because your reliance on your ego has blocked you from living your best life. As Oprah suggests, the ability to build awareness about yourself is how you disconnect from your ego.
Eckhart Tolle teaches us that although adversity can cause challenges in our lives, it is also a gateway to awareness and spiritual growth. Through adversity, we can find a true sense of safety and security in which the externalities of life no longer affect our daily lives and make us unhappy. As Eckhart explains, every adversity gives you a chance to become more present and more fulfilled.
In this free introductory lesson on Eckhart Tolle TV, you have the ability to join Eckhart in a discussion of what it means to face adversity. Learn how to escape from your patterns of reactive responses to personal challenges and accept these opportunities for awakening. The lesson includes personal questions and answers with audience members, as well as an uplifting closing meditation practice with Kim Eng.
Learning about Ego in A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
In A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose, Eckhart Tolle teaches that we all have the tendency to become trapped in our own identity and our ego. As Oprah suggests, you can easily see negative aspects in others’ egos, but it is more difficult to see how your own ego can prevent you from becoming your true self. The current state of humanity is tied into this state of mind, in which we are all driven by having and doing rather than by simply being. In today’s challenging world, with all of its economic turmoil, it is to important to recognize that possessions and status do not define who you are.
Awakening to your life’s purpose is more important than ever. In this inspiring book, Eckhart teaches us that none of us know what the future holds. Learning to become present and purposeful is a way to achieve a true sense of safety and security. Read A New Earth and discover how to move towards a level of consciousness in which you can invite a new purpose into your life.
