Oprah’s New Earth Promo Video 

Oprah recently joined hands with Eckhard Tolle, author of the book, A New Earth, to invite readers from all around the world to participate in a free, live interactive classroom discussion.  The 10 weekly sessions will be webcast every Monday night from March 3 through May 5 at 9/8c.

The scary thing about this book is what it teaches and how many people will read it.  To give you an idea, here’s a few lines from the promotional video which aptly begins, “This is about you.”ane_book_cover_obc_lg1.jpg

  • Discover the depth within yourself … 
  • Find the goodness already within you …
  • You are that light …
  • The source of all energy is within you …

According to Tolle, “heaven” is the awakened state within you that will bring about “a new earth” in the outer world, the world of form.  Sounds like a mix of Buddhism and New Age to me.   Yet Tolle asserts that he named the book, A New Earth, based on a Bible verse referring to the rising of “a new heaven and a new earth.”  

I’m not sure which verse he was referring to, but if it was Revelation 21:1-8,  I pray that instead of looking inward for an awakening of self, he would look outward to Jesus with a thirsty heart (Rev. 21:6).   A heart that knows that there is no goodness in me on my own (Rom. 3:10-12).  A heart that knows that the source of life is not within me (John 14:6).  And a heart that knows that only God can make things new both in my life and in the life to come through simply believing on his Son Jesus (2 Cor. 5:17, 1 Jn 5:11-12).
