In the Eckhart Tolle clip below he mentions an American woman, Karla Faye Tucker, whom while on death row for two brutal murders underwent a intense spiritual transformation and became an incredibly peaceful being. Listen to Eckharts description first (I have started the clip at the right time) and then I have included an interview with Karla in another clip just below that.
In the spirit of New Years Eve I went searching through some Robert Burns poetry to find some words that spoke to me and found this little gem in a poem called “Tam o’ Shanter”. I hope you enjoy and have a Happy New Year!
But pleasures are like poppies spread:
You seize the flower, its bloom is shed;
Or like the snow fall on the river,
A moment white – then melts forever,
Or like the Aurora Borealis rays,
That move before you can point to their place;
Or like the rainbow’s lovely form,
Vanishing amid the storm.
No man can tether time or tide,
The hour approaches Tom must ride
“Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.
You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’
The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
Here is the link to the transcript on his website. It is a very powerful read.
This is an excellent short video posted by Mooji during his recent trip to London. Enjoy!
Happiness is a choice to be made, not a skill to be learned.
In becoming the witness I discover I have always been the witness, but was under the illusion that I was in control of what I had witnessed.
