Thank you so much for the welcome, Miranda and Karen.
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.
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.
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.
I LOVE my teachers. :)
Thanks again, to both of you, for making me feel at home.

Enlightenment means choosing to dwell in the state of presence rather than in time. It means saying yes to what is. ~ Eckhart Tolle
Have a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing. ~ Wayne Dyer
We don't let go of our desires only our attachment to the outcome. ~ davidji
