So now that I’ve finished A New Earth, as has my spiritual book club, we’ve decided to start again from the beginning. Although some of what Eckhart Tolle has to say about spiritual enlightenment, or Awakening, has been said many times before, for some reason, his specific words and the way he phrases them connect on a deeper level for many. I have definitely felt the “shift” in consciousness he speaks of. After absorbing the material this first time around, I am now ready to re-read the chapters and focus more on the questions in the workbook Oprah has made available. I am ready to examine my experiences and my little self more fully.
