Tonight was the conclusion of the 10-week webinar on A New Earth with author Eckhart Tolle and Oprah Winfrey. It was illuminating and inspiring and, to use a term they mentioned tonight, I feel like I strengthened my “spiritual muscle” during the course.

What really spoke to me in chapter 10 with regard to my own life and how it impacts my coaching was Tolle’s presentation of three modalities — acceptance, enjoyment and enthusiasm. He writes, “You need to be vigilant to make sure that one of them operates whenever you are engaged in doing anything at all — from the most simple task to the most complex. If you are not … look closely and you will find that you are creating suffering for yourself and others.”

Later, in the section on enthusiasm, he writes, “Enthusiasm means there is deep enjoyment in what you do plus the added element of a goal or a vision that you work toward. When you add a goal to the enjoyment of what you do, the energy-field or vibrational frequency changes.” How wonderful to bring this understanding, or dimension, to a coaching relationship. And to help facilitate in a client what Tolle describes here — “You will feel like an arrow that is moving toward the target — and enjoying the journey.”

I am feeling this. I want others to feel it, too.
