Character is Destiny

Eckhart brings to life 'Meditations' the 2,000-year-old writings of 'philosopher-king' Marcus Aurelius, sharing the perennial wisdom of this unique Roman emperor. Eckhart calls this book powerful and timeless and says he has loved it for many years.

All-new teachings also include Kim Eng on accepting the form of this moment and Eckhart addressing the following questions:

* How do I maintain a sense of presence when I'm in the company of another person?
* What is the role of being in service to others in one's spiritual development       and in the overall evolutionary impulse of the universe?
* Can a person take psychiatric medication and still awaken?
* What would being present with anger actually look like?
* Are we the mountain or the valley?

Enjoy the pointers to spiritual truth that Eckhart shares with you. As Eckhart says, 'We are looking through the book at ourselves.'

'Love nothing but that which comes to you woven in the pattern of
your destiny. For what could more aptly fit your needs?'
- Marcus Aurelius

'If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due
to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have
the power to revoke at any moment.'
- Marcus Aurelius
