Casey Provided This Update:
I was ready for A New Earth, and I am thankful and will always be thankful that I read it and was ready for it. There are many things that I learned from the book and the webcast, but there are three main life-changing points that I take with me each day.

First, I am every day a student of being conscious. It is hard; life is crazy busy, but I get it. Thousands of moments have passed since I read this book that I have asked myself, "Are you present? Are you conscious as to what is going on?" I can honestly say that I really do not think that I would know to do this had I not experienced A New Earth. I am so thankful for this gift because, as a mother of three small children, I try to breathe the moments in and be conscious of the blessings that they are to me and the life experiences that we have together.

The second lesson: EGO!! Wow! What a check-yourself-at-the-door type of lesson that has brought on. I now know to stop myself and ask, "Where is this coming from, and why? Oh, yes—that is ego!" Then, I can remind myself about getting real and getting past ego to experience authenticity.

The third lesson that is with me every day is that of roles. I remember reading this and thinking, "Gosh, I am so glad that I am now aware of that." I try very hard to treat everybody as an authentic person and not as an individual based on the role he or she is performing. If you know better, you do better (thank you, Oprah, for that lesson). This book for me is one of the biggest life lessons I have ever received, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have participated in the A New Earth webcast.
