Dear friends, Tonight we will wrap up our months long study on Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth. Many of us have thoroughly enjoyed what Tolle has offered in our weekly study, and many of us are applying the teachings to our lives, as we constantly strive to learn and grow. I want to thank our facilitators for this project, Pablo Bodini and Jeff Meyers, for giving of themselves so freely in providing these teachings to our group week after week. We hope you will join us in the exercise below that beautifully summarizes the book - Let's all wake up! --ACOF Admin.
The new earth arises as more and more people discover that their main purpose is to bring the light of consciousness into this world and so use whatever they do as a vehicle for consciousness. Here are three ways of practicing "awakened doing."
- Knowing that what is cannot be undone—because it already is—you say yes to what is or accept what isn't. Then, you do what you have to do, whatever the situation requires.
- Stay alert, stay present—present with your whole Being, with every cell of your body. As you do so, you are bringing a light into the darkness. This is the flame of your consciousness.
- Abide in this state of acceptance for longer and longer periods each day. In this state, you create no more negativity, no more suffering, no more unhappiness. You then live in a state of nonresistance, a state of grace and lightness, free of struggle. When your doing arises from this state, your Being is a gift to the world.
