Oprah Winfrey’s new book club pick is A New Earth- Awakening To Your Life’s Purpose, by Eckhart Tolle.

A New Earth — Awakening to You Life’s Purpose by Eckhart Tolle “The key to more joy and purpose is by living in the present moment. Rather, “being” in the present moment. How do you do that? According to Mr. Tolle, it comes by a slow dismantling of the ego, and it’s endless attachment to the world of “form”. A New Earth is, very simply, one of the best offerings in the field of personal growth and spirituality to come out in years. No matter how near or how far you are along your own spiritual path, you can benefit (and save some steps!) from reading this book. Like his last book, this one is all about finding more joy and purpose in your life right now, and who doesn’t need that?”

The Divine Matrix — Bridging Time, Space, Miracles, and Belief by Gregg Braden

I would recommend this book to anyone who desires a change — in their own lives, their relationships, their job, or in the larger world around them. Whether your focus is finding the love of your life, stopping destructive patterns, or ending war and violence in our world, this book has something to offer. Braden cites an interesting statistic in his book — that less than one percent of any population (actually the square root of one percent) can change the reality around them, and that for the entire world to change all that is required is for 8,000 to focus on it. I find that an amazingly hopeful figure, and while I’d like to think that many of that 8,000 are already on the job and improving our world, I would be satisfied if I thought the rest were coming as a result of reading The Divine Matrix.

The 8th Chakra and Heart-Centred Soul Healing by Dr. Jude Currivan

Science and spiritual wisdom is becoming more and more entwined as the growing awareness of a wholly interconnected, conscious and holographic universe has radical implications for each of us. It reveals that in the Cosmos , consciousness is primary to the creation of the physical world and that these momentous times are the wave front of a global shift of consciousness. One of the most profound harbingers of this Shift is that we are individually and collectively able to directly access newly available cosmic energies that transcend our personal sense of self. Our liberated perception assists us in healing and releasing old patterns and limitations. And as we free ourselves, we are empowered to consciously co-create a new way of being in the world.

Seeking Meaning and Credibility in the Extraordinary Experiences of Others–The Fuel for the Metaphysical Journey by Dr. Steven E. Hodes

This experience, and these stories, have changed my life. To come to this powerful awareness can dispel much of the fear of death and loneliness that afflicts many of us. No longer afraid of death, we can embrace life. No longer plagued by feelings of loneliness and worthlessness, we can be comforted by the knowledge that we are never alone. We find ourselves more secure, content and whole. This is an essential component to any notion of healing.

The Biology of Belief: Bruce Lipton’s Schedule An enthusiastic, riveting speaker,Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., explores the idea of how there are “master switches” in us through which our thoughts and attitudes create the conditions of our bodies and of our place in the world. We can “reprogram” our life patterns and unleash incredible capabilities, including greater energy, health, and longevity. Our cells have an amazing capacity for life, and so do we. This article gives Dr. Lipton’s 2008 schedule.
