In this chapter Eckhart talks about looking at our thoughts and being a witness of our mind. We are not our thoughts, but rather this is our conditioning.

"The first part of Chapter 3 is about complaining, which includes faultfinding, grumbling and making negative comments in your speech or thought. This week, keep a running list of how often you complain during each day. Pay particular attention to a complaint that serves no useful purpose (any complaint that is not going to bring about a positive change in a situation or another person). For example, complaints about traffic, weather, having to wait in line or on the phone.

Complaints about what someone said or did (or failed to say or do). Complaints about your marriage, job, finances, health or groups of people. Notice the complaining voice in your head. Notice its only purpose is to be right, to be superior, to feel a stronger sense of separateness from others.

Whenever you notice the complaining voice, are you able to see it for what it is?a conditioned mind pattern, the voice of the ego? It is not who you are. And who are you? The one who recognizes that voice. Record your running list of complaints and your observations about them here."

Eckhart goes on to describe how ego does not satisfy us. It always wants more, bigger, better. Acceptance of this moment is the key to happiness. Gratitude is the place to start. Become friendly with the present moment.

Are you present? Are you ready?

    This is such a wonderful teaching on how when we focus on the "NOW" we can exit the ego and begin to feel the presence of spirit and know our true nature which is joyous and happy. As we become more aware we will find ourselves witnessing miracles in seemingly everyday events.

    The meeting was great! I had a lot of fun. The topics and conversations were very thought provoking and I was able to relate them to my current lifestyle.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
