A friend of mine recommended Eckhart Tolle to me and I have enjoyed his teachings immensely. "To be," I mean to really "be" is what I have always longed for. The moments of stepping away from the chaotic mind and intently listening to the harmonious sounds all around is truly beautiful.

I look forward to contributing to this team and I wish you all the most tranquil, blissful, peaceful moments our lives have to offer!

Thanks, Peggy. I can't afford to buy ANYTHING right now, but I do have a couple itunes gift cards. I'm wondering if I can find something there?

So glad you've joined us! You're enthusiasm is contagious!

Thank you so much for the welcome, Miranda and Karen. emoticon emoticon

Miranda ~ I got a Kindle for Christmas last year but have to admit that I haven't used it much. I thought it was back-lit and I was pretty disappointed when I found out it isn't. But, I've asked for a book-light for it for Christmas, this year. :) HOWEVER anyone reads A New Earth, it is THE BEST. emoticon I highly recommend that you read some Wayne Dyer. He is awesome, as well. On a list of the most spiritually influential people, Eckhart was #1 (as he should be), the Dalai Lama was #2 and Wayne Dyer was #3. He's written about 35 books, through a lot of years. Maybe, start with something like "Excuses Begone" although all of his books are fantastic.

Karen ~ "A work in progress" ~ well put . . me too. emoticon It would be wonderful to be instantly transformed, as Eckhart was ~ but it doesn't happen that way for most of us. Yes, I am totally enjoying 'the ride' as well. I am such a different person, with Eckhart's help ~ and I love it. I agree that it is totally about perception. :) davidji is a meditation teacher so if you meditate, check him out. He has written an amazing book, The Secrets of Meditation, which I own and love. It's on sale right now, actually. www.hayhouse.com/details.php?id=7070 I meditate with davidji's meditations every day. He's my favorite because I love his voice and he's not ALL serious and total business like a lot of teachers are. He can be light-hearted and fun, as well. emoticon I LOVE my teachers. :)

Thanks again, to both of you, for making me feel at home. emoticon

Somehow I missed this thread. Welcome to the team, Peggy! Love that you are enjoying such contentment! I love Tolle and Dr. Dyer. Both of them have changed my life, just by changing the way I perceive things. I'm a work in progress, for sure, but it's a journey I'm enjoying. I'll have to check out that other gentleman you mentioned.

Stay present!
Karen

Welcome Peggy!

I also try to read some Tolle every day. Since my husband bought me a Nook it's much easier. A New Earth was one of my first purchases for it.

I've heard of Wayne Dyer, but have not read any of his books. I'll check him out.

Good Luck on your journey here at SparkPeople!

~ by Mr. Eckhart Tolle. emoticon I try to watch, listen to or read something "Eckhart" every day. It improves my attitude 100%.

I, also, meditate every day. My favorite meditation teacher is davidji, former Dean of the Chopra Center. I read Wayne Dyer's books a lot, as well. They are my three "teachers" ~ and I luv 'em. emoticon

I am an over-40 Canadian SAHM, who needs to lose about 50 lbs. I'm enjoying SparkPeople and am really hoping to lose the weight and get healthy. emoticon

Namaste,

Peggy
