Is it possible to create personal happiness and end conflict and suffering around the world by becoming more present? That’s the premise of A New Earth, Awaking to Your Life’s Purpose by Eckhart Tolle. In today’s episode, Janine discusses the book and Tolle’s work to free humans from our egoic mind and awaken to a new state of consciousness to build a better life and a better world.
In today’s episode,
Janine talks about the book and the 10-part podcast with Oprah and author.
In the book, Mr. Tolle writes that all suffering as individuals and collectively is the result of the ego and and brain-based living. Because we are constantly in our mind and fluctuating between the past rehashing old grievances and disappointments and the future, which is full of worry and anxiety, our ego creates a dysfunction that leads to anger, jealousy, and unhappiness. According to Tolle, we are selfish and cruel to each other because we are controlled by the ego mind and the only way to send this suffering and create joy is to awaken and live in the present rather than spending all of your time in the past or future.
A favorite of Oprah and selected for “Oprah’s Book Club”, the book challenges us to wake up and make the changes necessary to help create “A New Earth.”
