What I’ve been listening to…

I love me a good podcast! And this morning’s was a ripper πŸ˜‰

I could listen to Oprah talk all day…and when she presents her “Super Soul Conversations” with Eckhart Tolle, I am in podcast heaven!

“Free Yourself From Anxiety, Stress, and Unhappiness” was the topic for today. If you identify yourself based on your thoughts, conditioning, your role/s…there is always something to prove…an image to uphold and preserve in the eyes of others. We are so much more than this.

This is a great quote by Eckhart Tolle…
“You are a human being. What does that mean? Mastery of life is not a question of control, but of finding a balance between human and Being. Mother, father, husband, wife, young, old, the roles you play, the functions you fulfil, whatever you do – all that belongs to the human dimension. It has its place and needs to be honoured, but in itself it is not enough for a fulfilled, truly meaningful relationship or life. Human alone is never enough, no matter how hard you try or what you achieve, Then there is Being. It is found in the still, alert presence of Consciousness itself, the Consciousness that you are. Human is form. Being is formless. Human and Being are not separate but interwoven.”

That need to perform – to “keep up appearances” – that we easily get caught up in is exhausting, and often leads to anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and physical dis-ease.

So, what can you do? Spend time in quietness, be still, get out in to nature, breathe deeply and consciously…meditate…

Here’s the link to the podcast

Have a peaceful weekend.
