These are some of the exercises that help you incorporate “The New Earth” into your life:
- Every time you walk up and down the stairs in your house or place of work, pay close attention to every step, every movement…even your breathing. Be totally present.
- When you wash your hands, pay attention to all the sensory perceptions associated with the activity: the sound and feel of the water, the movement of your hands, the scent of the soap and so on.
- When you get into your car, after you close the door, pause for a few seconds and observe the flow of your breath. Become aware of a silent but powerful sense of presence.
Oprah has said on her show that there are many ways to heaven and that the cross is something for us to overcome. I agree that we should take the time to be aware of the things around us. We should not take for granted the simple things of life, because they point to the beauty that God has created. But Oprah and Eckhart Tolle are leading people to emptiness and toward a path of destruction.
Let’s imagine a bride walking down the aisle. She takes her time, breathing in and out. She notices ever part of her dress, every person seated in the pews, and every feeling she is experiencing at that moment. Everything is beautiful. It is the moment she has waited for all her life. There’s just one thing….there’s no groom. Pretty pointless isn’t it. Jesus is the perfect groom, coming back for his bride (the Church). He is the only thing. Everything comes from Him, is for Him, and holds together because of Him.
Jesus is the only way. Don’t let Oprah or anyone else try to convince you otherwise. Yes, God has created a beautiful Earth for us to appreciate, but it is fallen creation just like us. Cling to the cross and nothing else.
