Oprah says that reading her newest Book Club choice, Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth, will "awaken the highest self in you."
She's encouraging each participant in the 10 week course that she and Eckhart are teaching together to keep a journal of favorite quotes from each chapter. She's calling these favorite quotes "flowers". By the end of the 10 weeks everyone will have a collection of their favorite flowers from A New Earth ~ a field of flowers.

Chapter One favorite quotes ~
"Man made 'God' in his own image. The eternal, the infinite, and unnameable was reduced to a mental idol that you had to believe in and worship as 'my god' or 'our god'". (p.15)
"Humanity is now faced with a stark choice: Evolve or die". (p.21)
"When you recognize the unconsciousness in you, that which makes the recognition possible is the arising consciousness, is awakening. You cannot fight against the ego and win, just as you cannot fight against darkness. The light of consciousness is all that is necessary. You are that light." (p.8)
