I love Oprah. She recently ended “The Oprah Winfrey Show” show after 25 years and started her own channel called OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network). I have subscribed to it ($2.95 a month with Shaw) and have intermittently watched a few shows (I watch very little TV). Love it so far. I have found some of the shows that she has created to be very meaningful. (Finding Sarah, Ryan and Tatum: The O’Neils)
She has just started a new show of her own called “Oprah’s Life Class”, it premiered last night. It is on five days a week, at 5pm and 10pm, followed by a live webcast at 6pm. There is also an on-line workbook. I wanted to tell you about it because I found it to be very meaningful and urge you to watch it. It’s along the same lines as Eckhardt Tolle and positive thinking stuff I’ve written about before. Oprah has a great skill of presenting these things in a simple yet profound way. Yesterday’s class was “The False Power of the Ego”, you can learn more about it here. Tonight’s class is “Letting Go of Anger”.
If you watch it, let me know what you think.
“If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and true enemies; succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway…
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
it was never between you and them anyway.”
