The 100 Day Reality Challenge

I've recently been listening to Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth. Candi and I were going for a drive when we first started listening to it. When I first heard the guy's voice I thought, "Oh god. I'm in for it." ;) Then I actually found it interesting!

I believe that this book is about recognizing your true self from your ego. The ego is just a part of yourself that wants to defend itself and make it better than others. This ego part of you would want to fight back if someone came up challenged you in anyway. (You're fat. You're a liar. I'm right and you're wrong.) I know I have this defensiveness a lot and being aware of this want to engage in an ego versus ego battle is helpful. At least if I am aware, I can stop it before it begins and also realize that the other person is not cruel or evil, they are simply not aware. They are driven by an ego a need to feel better than others.

I'm interested in hearing what else he has to say and will be listening to the rest during one our long drives. :)

Thanks for reading my first blog post!

wow Brit, Heck I missed this blog of yours. Im going to bring it to the surface for comment again.
So Brit where do you think this EGO of our operates? Have you thought about it?
Do you suppose it opperates from FEAR?
There are many faces of FEAR huh. Fear of being wrong, not accepted...etc. Fear can also be the ego afraid of the truth..thats why it tells lies sometimes to be right. Sometimes it talks story just to be heard, so it can feed on old beliefs that are just a bunch of lies from the past or lies that have not come to pass.
All very interesting stuff...brilliant man, this Mr. Tolle.
Hugs J
