Oprah's A New Earth class went much better last night — for me and Rocky anyway. The cat and I endured a only few minor hitches on our computer, but, strangely enough, Cuppa didn't share such good fortune with her hookup in the next room over. Who can say why, but perhaps Oprah had her on a different and less reliable server. Regardless, the end result was that she joined Rocky and me in our quest for Enlightenment and that led to her taking this picture, which gave me something to post today.
I enjoyed both the chapter and the webcast. Its focus was the ego and how to begin to shunt it aside (my words) and live in Consciousness (Eckhart's word). I know it's a bit ethereal for most of us with a solid Western background and mental constructs, but I didn't actually find the material too mystical or outlandish: not so much that I can't grind some grist from it anyway. With mentors such Oprah, Tolle, Cuppa and especially His Enlightened Rockiness to help me on my path, how can I not make spiritual progress, I ask you.
