Oprah Winfrey: The Roots

Oprah Winfrey: The Roots

2021-03-0322:235

There is no moving up and out in the world unless we are fully acquainted with the person we are meant to be.

They grow stronger only when tended, nurtured and most importantly, shared with others. In this Super Soul conversation, Oprah Winfrey sits down with such inspired writers and thinkers as Nate Berkus, Brian Grazer, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tracy Morgan, Sister Joan Chittister, the Rev. Ed Bacon, RuPaul Charles, Glennon Doyle, President Joe Biden and Pastor Wintley Phipps. Each share individual stories of what it was like to tap into their own roots and wellsprings of talent to discover their greater purpose and deeper levels of fulfillment. Interviews with these talented writers, speakers and thought leaders are excerpted from Oprah’s Emmy Award-winning show Super Soul Sunday.

Making the shift from self to service brings joy and also a deep sense of fulfillment to our jobs, relationships and the vision we create of our best life, says Oprah's friend Gary Zukav.

One of Oprah’s favorite quotes comes from German mystic Meister Eckhart. He said, “If the only prayer you say in your entire life is ‘thank you,’ that will be enough.” Oprah says when she started keeping a gratitude journal more than 20 years ago, it was one of the most important things she’s done. The daily practice of writing down five things to be grateful for balanced her life in subtle and inspiring ways. "It sounds simple,” Oprah says, “but when you go through the day staying conscious about what you put on your gratitude list, it shifts the lens through which you see the world.” In this episode of Super Soul, Oprah sits down with luminaries like Mark Nepo, Ram Dass, Elizabeth Lesser, Reverend Ed Bacon, Tracey Jackson, Paul Williams, Geneen Roth, Cheryl Strayed, Caroline Myss, Gretchen Rubin, Shawn Achor, Marie Forleo, Lynne Twist, Louie Schwartzberg and Norman Lear to discover that the practice of gratitude can elevate our lives to a state of grace.

Job loss, addiction, a break up, the death of a loved one, illness… these are the kinds of struggles that have the potential to break us wide open. Oprah says that before you ask the question Why me, Why me? Realize that nothing is happening out of order.  Your life is always speaking to you. When that wake-up call comes, understand that it’s your life trying to push you in another direction… onto the next leg of your journey. Don’t resist. Instead let the truth break you open. No experience is ever wasted. In this episode of Super Soul, Oprah sits down with acclaimed spiritual teachers: Elizabeth Lesser, Gabrielle Bernstein, Father Richard Rohr, Ali McGraw, Sarah Ban Breathnach, Caroline Myss, Lewellyn Vaughn Lee, Reverend Michael Beckwith, Elizabeth Gilbert, Glennon Doyle, Michael Singer, Iyanla Vanzant, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Pema Chödrön, Cheryl Strayed, Deepak Chopra and Adyashanti to reveal the true meaning of what it means to be broken open and what to do when those life-challenges arise. Interviews with these talented writers, speakers and thought leaders are excerpted from Oprah’s Emmy Award-winning show Super Soul Sunday. You can also find this compilation and other insightful conversations, in Oprah’s best-selling book The Wisdom of Sundays.
Oprah Winfrey says that for many people searching for peace and purpose, one of the biggest obstacles can be the struggle to forgive. Especially if one has suffered trauma, abuse or personal betrayals, forgiveness can seem like an insurmountable hurdle. The journey to releasing resentments and vengeful thoughts, and the letting go of all hope for a better past, are probably some of the biggest spiritual challenges any of us will ever face. Oprah says if we accept these challenges, the rewards are great because on the other side of forgiveness is freedom. In this episode of Super Soul, Oprah sits down with such luminaries as Dr. Maya Angelou, Karen Armstrong, Marianne Williamson, Adyashanti, Mark Nepo, Wayne Dyer, Gabrielle Bernstein, Don Miguel Ruiz, Tracey Jackson, Shaka Senghor, Bryan Stevenson and Michael Singer to discover what it means to truly forgive and the steps we all can take to find personal freedom.

Oprah Winfrey says that she didn’t understand the true meaning of ego until she met Eckhart Tolle. He opened her eyes to how an ego-based mind can sabotage everything. Initially she thought ego meant arrogance or superiority. But now she sees it's the part of us that identifies as our personality, our accomplishments, our talents, essentially the false self. The key to continued spiritual growth is to understand the ego’s disruptive role in our lives. In this SuperSoul Conversation Oprah talks with Eckhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Father Richard Rohr, Brene Brown, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Jack Canfield, Jeff Weiner, Phil Jackson, Pema Chodron about the many challenges the ego presents and what we can do to stay on track.

I really appreciate this conversation on religion. my pastor at church would read Scripture at church from the Bible and many other scriptures from other religions. in this I think he proves that there is so many similarities across different religions. that's the point.

Why should somebody who has no related background or education in love, sex and reincarnation write some books about them? Oprah has done some great interviews. Some of them are really inspiring. But why interviewing with someone who proudly mentions having affairs while being married? Or having sex with three different people on a single day? It seems as if she is unconsciously encouraging people to do so. Is really such a person qualified to write about sex or love or reincarnation??? And is really such a person a role model???
