5. From Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth..."The true or primary purpose of your life cannot be found

on the outer level. It does not concern what you do but who you are-that is your state of consciousness." He states, "your life has an inner purpose and an outer purpose. Inner purpose concerns Being and is primary. Outer purpose concerns doing and is secondary. They are intertwined and almost impossible to speak of one without referring to another."

"Your inner purppose is to awaken. It is as simple as that....Your outer purpose can chaange over time. Finding and living in alignment with your inner purpose is the foundation for fulfilling your oouter purpose. I is the basis for true sucess."

"Awakening is a shift in consciousness in which thinking and awareness separate. For most people is is not an event but a process they undergo...Awareness is conscious connection with universal intelligene. Anothree work for it is Presence: consciousness without thought."
