Sheron Cardin's Input...: Another New Earth?

I have been an interior designer for over 27 years and I have always taught my clients the principles I used while decorating their home so they may enjoy decorating too. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.

Another New Earth?

A new earth bookThe biggest thing to hit the airwaves and cyberspace is Oprah and the book A New Earth. Nothing could be more exciting to me than to see a big change in the world...I know I am not alone.

So with the tardy bell ringing I run to WalMart to by the book by Eackhart Tolle, speed home to open and read it before the first free Internet class March 3rd.

Sun rays           The world is not going to leave ME behind!

Much to my chagrin, it is a slow read for me and I toil to make the first 2 chapters marked read, then turn on my PC to take part in history. Ready to transform, pencil in hand and my workbook ready, I tune in to the class. I don't know anything about the author and he did not look like what I would want the new leader to look like, but there he was with Oprah...talking about how he is the instrument and is compelled to write down what he is channeling.

W H A T ?  This is not new, I channeled a couple of books in 1973 myself! I have been reading books for almost 4 decades that are channeled. Is there nothing new under the sun? According to Ecclesiastes there isn't, hasn't, and never will be anything new under the sun, darn it!

candleThen less than a hour into the program hoping for a glimmer of light to shine through...the lights go out! I am not kidding. A moment later, a commercial about menstrual cramps comes on and I look over at my girlfriend whom I have convinced she needs this, and threw up my hands. I tried and tried to hook back up to no avail. The good news is that if we missed the broadcast, we can watch it the next day. NOT!

Trying desperately to retain my original excitement for a shift in my consciousness, I look at my download options and not one of them was what I wanted. I thought to myself 'poor Oprah', her staff is letting her down with poor technical advice/help/direction. I don't want to download the program to my mp3 player, nor do I want to send it to my ipod, nor do I want a written transcript. What's left is an hour and a half download that went nowhere. Am I being shut out by the new earth and the new people?  

All week long I tried to see if anyone else was dealing with the same issues as I and sure enough, all my friends and family that was participating had experienced the black out too...and another path has not been opened up to them either to recover what was lost. There is a 3 page summary of the class that I printed out but it is no more enlightening than past metaphysical teachings (which of course are mind altering) but I am hanging in there Oprah, even if it is just because you say it is the shift I need.

crossed fingersMonday evening at 6 pm Pacific, class #2 will enter the homes of more than 500,000 homes and once again we will be open minded with pencil and paper, waiting for that aha moment, that shift in consciousness that tells us why we are here, or at least a better reason that the ones we have come up with so far...

The book is still a hard read for me but I am forging ahead to a better world. I am hoping to hear something that I have not heard before or read before. If I do, you will know it. If you do, I would love to about it.

Separating the clouds from the sky is just not doing it for me. I hope this post isn't too much of a downer but so far the book and the class is a disappointment to me. I hope to add a shift in consciousness to this post...my fingers are crossed. 

 

Namaste

someone needs to tell me...what makes Oprah such an expert on life...because she is rich? because she has a TV show? I don't get it.

That is a really good question! She is whatever you want her to be I would guess. She learns as she goes in front of everyone.

Sheron, What a letdown that was, you know I couldn't view it either.  All our stores were out of the book so I got it on Ebay to have it in time--and paid a fortune.  I agree, it's not an easy read and I have to stop frequently to try and absorb what he's saying.

I couldn't view it in real time, either, so I listened to it in its entirety the next day.

Chapter 1 was not mind-blowing (it's inreoductory), but chapter 2 is IMHO.  I wouldn't have known about this if I hadn't stumbled onto it.  I'm enjoying the book and I think it's an important stretching exercise of consciousness.

Just my $.02.

Carole - it looks like we are on the same page with this one ;-) Sounds like we need to stick with it.

Karen - I have heard many readers say it picks up around page 40. Class #2 is tonight and I have some stretching to do.

I just bought the book. I can usually get through a book in a Sunday.... I love to read, but my family doesn't see me when I get a new one. My point.... I was trying like hell yesterday, but found it very slow also. Hopefully it does pick up! I will try again tonight. I will not be attending the classes. I hope you will let us know how things go.

I don't feel so alone now ;)  I will try to be there myself. The first class I was bombarded with announcements and now nothing. Hope I can get in...it is much too early to get expelled...right?

I listened to it in 4 days on disk while commuting. It was absolutely amazing and at times moving. It is interesting to note many of the comments above that people are so desperate for speed in transfer of knowledge and understanding. Just sit, read and soak it in or sit and listen without fidgeting and reaching for the remote. Sit still.

I'm a little late to the party here but I had trouble with the first couple of broadcasts and then decided to watch the video on my own. I couldn't get into the videos, so I went out and got the book and am reading it. It is full of insightful wisdom and I am glad I am reading it. I think I will try to watch the videos again after I have read the book. There is a lot  to take in ........

Hope it went OK for you Sheron.

Brent and Bonnie- as a metaphysician, I have read hundreds of books, went to hundreds of seminars, a soaked up all the good stuff like a sea sponge. In the 70's channeling was the big thing. I didn't expect it to be the big thing in the next millennium. When Eckhart said that he was channeling, I was very disappointed. I have the book, I have downloaded all the shows, transcripts, and audio, so when I get over my disappointment, I will be able to join in. For me, getting into something so sacred at dinnertime on a Monday just doesn't work.

Thank you for your input, I really appreciate it!

Sheron, I have read & studied extensively in this area for years also. I have read or heard his message from other sources, waiting for the big "awareness" to wop me on the head. Eckhardt has a unique way of explaining this information that really strikes home for me.

I get it!!   Finally!!!

Don't get discouraged by the channeling phrase. All wisdom comes from the collective  consciousness, I think it is just his way of saying that it flows through him but not of him.
