I was all set, hooked into Oprah’s worldwide class on A New Earth. My video feed was great. Oprah and author Eckhart Tolle were having a conversation. Suddenly, stops and starts. Then, nothing.

I’m not sure what happened. What I do know is there’s a way to play it from her website tomorrow.

In the meantime, the gems from the small portion I actually saw, all courtesy of Tolle:

— (paraphrasing) So often we ask, “What do I want from life?” How about, “What does life want from me?”

— (talking about his process) “Every day there was a space for writing … I always honored that space.”

— “The book was inspired and not channeled.”

— “Find spaces of stillness.”

Perhaps, this night, these were the only nuggets I was meant to take in. After all, tackling “What does life want from me?” is quite an undertaking.
