I read Chapter 1 about a week ago and didn’t get a chance to go through Oprah’s webcast until tonight.
After gone through the webcast along with some favourite quotes and exercises in Chapter 1, I was drawn back to the idea of “Open to Grace” as stated by John Friend in Anusara Yoga.
Some of the keywords that drew me into assimilating the two were: stillness, consciousness, awareness, prescence, letting go of the ego
This shift in consciousness as reminded by Eckhart Tolle is similar to when we are asked to open to grace in anusara yoga. We allow our stillness to take over our thoughts and to let go of what we were and be in tune with the now.
