A New Earth – Awakening to your Life’s Purpose – Eckhart Tolle

Recently our family decided to dedicate one hour each Monday to take the journey with Eckhart Tolle and Oprah towards the Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose.

I have done this series when it aired a number of years ago however this book and this series is still very relevant to today including a new generation of people seeking new ways to their Life’s Purpose.

The series is 10 chapters diving into the writing with Eckhart himself explaining. There are live skype in’s and email questions with people around the world which really help navigate the depth of the writing.

Eckhart Tolle is humble purposeful real and honest. He shares his own life challenges and gives listeners a soft reality check with helpful concepts on handling varieties of situations. Together with Oprah driving the series this is excellent for anyone wishing to move forward to the present. Perfect for families, those suffering pain of any sort filled with wisdom that can be taken right away to your world.

If you have read the book or done the amazing series with Eckhart and Oprah this is a lovely reminder and perhaps as I believe we all are in a new place called The Present or Right Now and this will help you today.

I have included Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 as we have completed both. You can go at your own pace of course and I am thinking that I will put up each chapter as we are done so you don’t miss out.

Are you ready to awaken to your life’s purpose? Watch the first class of the A New Earth webcast with Eckhart Tolle. Oprah and Eckhart Tolle discuss Chapter 1: The Flowering of Human Consciousness and what it means to be present in each moment.

Chapter 2 of Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth deals with understanding the role of the human ego. Oprah and Eckhart Tolle discuss how to separate your true identity from your ego’s attachments in this webcast video.

Take time to be present and enjoy. Thank you to everyone involved in bringing this series together including of course Eckhart Tolle and Oprah.

November 1st is World Vegan Day – November is World Vegan Month

World Vegan Day

https://www.facebook.com/WorldVeganDay

November 1944

The word ‘vegan’ and the world’s first ever Vegan Society were created in November 1944, in England, by Donald Watson and his esteemed colleagues.

Check it out: Here’s a first edition of the Vegan News from 1944. http://www.worldveganmonth.net – interesting read to note even then people were talking about humans eating diseased animals created for mass consumption and how to improve health by adopting the whole food plant based lifestyle. Plus care for the planets resources and health for the entire system of our home called earth. This is an interesting look into a time capsule and still relevant today.

I am sure there are many ways to get involved in your communities and if not than perhaps you will start something. Starting in your own home is a great place to start the Vegan lifestyle for one day one month one lifestyle the whole food plant based vegan lifestyle will offer you many benefits.

Share with family and friends the importance of this month – perhaps create a challenge together and for those non-vegans reading this maybe today is your day to take the leap of faith to the vegan lifestyle that you have been wanting to.

Have an excellent World Vegan Day / Month / Life.
