This week was part 7 in the 10 part free web classes with Eckhart Tolle and Oprah. They’re really getting into the core of it now, with this weeks chat on Who you really are. The who, underneath the contents of life. Its also interesting to see how they are pulling no punches, being right up front with peoples illusions. Oprah herself unintentionally illustrated the difference between allowing (“I got it!”) and resistance, with her discomfort at people saying things about her that were untrue. Of course, this is the “her” of the ego and of taking things personally. You could see her whole countenance change as she shifted personas. They both described the ideas very well and some of Eckhart’s explanations were sublime, clearly illustrating the difference between ego investment or feeding the pain body and clearing and release. Not territory many are familiar with. They also spoke about the role of gratitude, Oprah long keeping a gratitude journal. (I used the gratitude rock idea in The Secret)
This is a fine series. Each week, the silence they take is a little longer. Each week they go further past illusions and into the deeper reality of who we are and why were here. What could possibly be more important than that?
