This week Oprah is running a 7-part series called “Belief.” The goal is to “highlight the best of faith and spiritual practices from around the world.” My colleague from England, Tony Lobl, has written an article that ties in with this series. “Oprah: What do you believe?” was first published in the Huffington Post on October 16, 2015. Tony explores how we can take belief deeper into faith and ultimately spiritual understanding. You’ll want to click through to read the whole article, and watch the series on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
How do you fill a seemingly “eternal black hole of despair” within you?
That was the question facing Elizabeth Gilbert as divorce plunged her into deep depression.
In a moment of “revelation”, the “Eat, Pray, Love” author realized the “only thing that can fill an eternal hole is the Eternal.”
She continued: “So you keep trying to fill this with worldly things. But you have to fill it with something that’s as big as the hole itself. And there’s only one thing in this universe that’s as big as that empty hole, and that is God.”
Her heartfelt story is one of a series of short videos heralding the arrival of a week-long Oprah Winfrey Network special on our beliefs.
