WWW Wednesdays – October 14th, 2020

This is a post where I talk about what I am reading, by answering the following questions…

  1. What have I finished reading?
  2. What am I currently reading?
  3. What will I be reading next?

I only read one book, since I just spent the long weekend with my boyfriend relaxing, and watching football.

3. What will I be reading next?

I placed an order at my local library, I’m just waiting to pick it up. This book is part of Oprah’s Book Club.

Even if it doesn’t become available to me soon, I still have time to finish off these books.

Hey everyone! It’s another addition of WWW Wednesday! It’s where I answer the following questions;

  1. What have I finished reading?
  2. What am I currently reading?
  3. What will I read next?
  1. What have I finished reading?

This was such a good book. I first started reading when I was on the bus picking up a few groceries and when I was shopping, all I could think was what was going to happen next. It was so good.

My boyfriend and I reading about a half a chapter before bed each night.

And

3. What will I read next?

I just placed this book on hold at my local library. My sister was reading it, but I don’t think she ever finished it. We did watch the movie with our mom several of years ago. I thought the movie was well done. Oprah had this book in one of her book clubs.

Joy and Ease

“As soon as you honour the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease.”

-Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle is a famous a spiritual teacher. He also appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show. He has published several books discussing on life changing it is to stay present. In fact his The Power of Now is featured in the Oprah Winfrey’s Book Club. But I started reading this book as a recommendation from one of my friends, that was reading this book.

What I love about this quote is how freeing it is. Whenever we spend time looking back in the past, or stressing out about the future, we are allowing ourselves to let the past or our future imprison us from the now. Eckhart Tolle reminds us is to remain in the now, and to not let anything disturb us from this present moment. When you finally decide to let go everything that holds you back, you will realize that all you really need is to be present.

Buddha’s definition of enlightenment, is the end of suffering. Once we begin to focus on the now, that is when you can finally free yourself. That is when we truly feel at peace, and happiness can finally blossom.
