Namaste beautiful friends and welcome new friends and members! I am looking forward to listening to Chapter 3 with you. I definitely need this beautiful message. Eckhart discusses the core of the ego an it's strategies. ♥ "Nonreaction to the ego in others is one of the most effective ways not only of going beyond ego in yourself but also of dissolving the collective human ego." (p. 62) ♥ "Nonreaction is not weakness but strength. Another word for nonreaction is forgiveness. To forgive is to overlook, or rather to look through. You look through the ego to the sanity that is in every human being as his or her essence." (p. 63) Below us a link to Oprah's site where she and Eckhart talk about chapter 3. www.oprah.com/oprahsbookclub/Chapter-3-Oprah-and-Eckhart-Tolles-A-New-Earth-Webcast-Video Instead of the Oneness Blessing, I would like to open up this half hour for a group interaction activity that is an effective way to become present. After the excercise I would like to take time for a group meditation with the intent being the same as the Oneness Blessing. I am feeling less inclined to give the Blessing as I feel that we, as a group can bring that to one another simply by our love and desire to recognize ourself in other.
