A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle is a book that will not only enlighten your mind—it also contains insightful lessons on parenting that will enrich your family, Rabbi Shmuley says. He talks with Elizabeth Lesser, host of the A New Earth After Show on Oprah Radio, about the book and its relevance to parents. Rabbi Shmuley also explores how the ego can get in the way of parenting, what it means to be a "conscious parent" and the importance for parents to maintain their own identities as they seek to raise healthy, balanced and caring children.
"America is a country built on the idea of freedom. But liberty is not only the liberation from political oppression or the emancipation from economic degradation. The greatest freedom of all is to be liberated from the incarceration and tyranny of the human ego."
