Transformational Touchstones: A New Earth
"You are not inferior beings in need of enlightenment...
you are not misguided children trying to find your way home.
You are powerful leading-edge creators riding the most significant
wave of expansion that has ever occurred."
A New Earth:
Awakening To Your Life's Purpose
In the genre of personal development books, A New Earth is a study of personal and worldwide transformation. Best selling author Eckhart Tolle encourages and guides readers to identify and live a grand vision of a new loving world.
Oprah has invited Tolle to be her guest in an unprecedented web presentation discussing this evolutionary book. They are discussing one chapter per week, and invite audience participation from around the globe. Over 2 million people have viewed the first three interviews. You can also partake in this wonderful unique opportunity, for absolutely no charge.
(This web series was taped in March 2008. Oprah has kept the video's available for viewers. Check out the Webcast Archive: Eckhart Tolle and Oprah.)
From the front flap of A New Earth:
"Eckhart Tolle takes us beyond our own lives to show that we now have an opportunity to birth a new, more loving world. This involves a radical inner leap of consciousness from the current identification with our ego to an entirely new way of thinking about who we are. For this to happen, the very structures of the human mind would need to undergo an evolutionary transformation. In A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle shows how this transformation can occur not only in ourselves, but in the world around us. In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. He then gently and in very practical terms leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are, which is infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are."
Early in 'A New Earth' Tolle uses the analogy of the first flower blossoming into the world. He states that before flowers, the world was covered in lush green vegetation. And then evolution introduced the flower. One flower led to another, and another, and soon the world was rich with abundant variations and beauty in blossoms. Such a flowering is what humanity is now experiencing itself... the beginning of the breakout of abundant buds.
In the past there have been a few vibrant blossom examples, letting us see what our beauty and potential looks like when manifest, ie. Buddha, Jesus and others. Now evolution is taking us to the tipping point where blossoms will be springing up everywhere. This book is a call to join in the blossoming... because we can!
