It’s not easy to find a flower in the ground in NYC. The only flowers you really see are placed on the streets at Deli stands.
A flower can blossom – wherever, as long as it has water and light. Just as a flower blossoms and expands, being open is a great way to begin the book “A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life’s Purpose” by Eckhart Tolle. Be here now, with an open mind and let the words of the book flow through your mind. Allow the process of understanding what the words mean to happen naturally and effortlessly. Trust that if your mind is open – the information will come in organically and your mind will be able to process the information. The more you try to ‘get’ what the book is saying – that is your ego (the voice in your head that tells you “I don’t get it!”), the more difficult it will be. Whether you understand or don’t understand what Eckhart is talking about- it’s great that you’re reading!
If something does not make sense to you- try to break the sentence down and figure out what part doesn’t make sense to you. Come back to it or take some time to give it more thought. Becoming aware of what you don’t understand- is the beginning of becoming more conscious.
From my perspective, it would be fairly safe to say we’re constantly thinking- whether it is conscious or unconscious. These thoughts stem from our internal dialogue (mind & body) which then come to life as we see it – physical reality. The thoughts are the seeds that grow into the garden or jungle you create.
It’s difficult to understand what you cannot see. You cannot see thoughts but human thought is what makes humans the most powerful species on earth.
Take a moment to look around you- the chair you sit in, the computer you type at, etc. all started with a thought which resulted into a physical creation.
Reaching greater levels of awareness within yourself might at first be a painful experience. You might become aware of things you do not want to accept, you don’t like, etc. but it is the first step to creating more peace within. Peace within expands out- which will make a better earth.
Allow your mind to be open, deepen your understanding, and advance your thinking. I’m here to take this journey of “Awakening To Your Life’s Purpose” with you. Let this book give you some water and light and allow yourself blossom – even if it’s on the side of the street.
