Finished "A New Earth"

Last night, or rather early this morning at about 4am UK time, I finished taking part in the webcasts that Oprah Winfrey and Eckhart Tolle were doing in studying the book, "A New Earth". It has been truly an amazing experience. I have learned a lot and this has all come along at a time in my life when I needed this. I am going to miss the webcasts, but I can always go back and read the book again and see what else I discover. This book has opened my eyes a lot and it has helped me gain more peace, especially in dealing with the loss of my mother a couple of years ago. I have had a bit of a bumpy road in my life these last few years, and now I see those situations in a new light. I know that it is a tall order for one book to change your life, and that is certainly not what I am saying, however, tiny bits of clarity come in many ways. So this book has just been a nice nudge in my life and it has definitely opened me up like I haven't been since my mother died. I thought that I would never be open like this ever again. When the webcast ended, before I went upstairs to bed, I looked outside and the sun was already coming up here. The sun comes up ridiculously early here. (smile) It was just a bit of pink in the sky at that point, but I knew it was going to be a glorious day. And today, it is the sunniest day we have had in a long time. A new day.
