do not walk to the bookstore and pick up a copy of Eckhart Tolle’s newest book, A New Earth. It’s a transformative piece of work.

    I admit it.

    I walked.

    (Actually, it made a nice lunch break, so I’m now reading. More to say when I finish.)

    I finished Power of Now and have started A New Earth. Also downloading all the interactive deals he’s doing with Oprah right now.

    I’m just totally lost (literally and figuratively) in his words, yet there is so much truth, and I feel it throughout me when I listen (audiobooks) that I just feel drained after listening at times. I have to be careful I get wrapped up and forget I’m driving.

Strange.

I’ve heard many people try to describe and teach what Tolle puts so easily and eloquently. It really resonates with me. It’s hard to put into words the feeling of becoming more awake.
