We’d say Oprah’s having a good year! She made it on the cover of Forbes, her OWN Network has recovered with record-breaking ratings, and she’s in cahoots with HBO for a new drama series. What more could she possibly achieve in 2012??
How about getting her OWN section on The Huffington Post? Oprah’s partnered with the news media monster and today was officially launch day.
Here’s a snippet from her first open letter in the publication:
It’s Launch Day.
The beginning of our brand new special section of OWN, The Oprah Winfrey Network, on one of the most respected, energizing digital platforms worldwide, The Huffington Post. Thank you, Arianna, for allowing us to extend “the conversation” about empowerment and how we can grow and evolve ourselves to the truest expression of who we each are meant to be. This is my calling, my heart’s deepest desire: to fulfill my highest potential and to share what I know to help you do the same.
One of my favorite quotes comes from Thought Leader and Wisdom Teacher Pierre Tielhard de Chardin: “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
My ultimate intention during the 25 year run of the Oprah show was to offer ways for us to see that we are all connected in our humanity and our desire for something greater… to know the depths of our spiritual selves.
These are fragile, turbulent, challenging, exciting and often frightening times. More than ever we need to be in touch with our internal GPS — the inner voice that knows right from wrong that’s always guiding us True North. I want to use this fantastic web space to help point us there.
Understanding that we are all more powerful than we know — that we are all connected to something bigger than ourselves — is the real conversation I want to have. In many ways, it is the only conversation, I believe, truly worth having. So let’s continue this conversation together here at the OWN section of The Huffington Post.
Mad props go to Oprah on yet another huge achievement.
