Oprah Winfrey Opens Up About How She Defines Herself

Oprah Winfrey graces the cover of O‘s February issue, out on January 16.

Here’s what the media mogul had to say:

On how she defines herself: “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. I really define myself as someone whose really grounded in the essence of my own spirituality and trying to connect that to my humanity every day.”

On what she loves most in others: “The unique quality that I love most about others is kindness, and it takes nothing to be kind.”

On Black History Month: “I am a product of every African-American ancestor who came before me. Every one of them abides with me on a daily basis. I have a wonderful phrase that Maya Angelou wrote in one of her poems: ‘I come as one, but I stand as 10,000.’ I’m doing that right now, as one, standing as 10,000.”

    It’s gobbledegook guru-speech culled from self-help books like Tony Robbins and Deepak Chopra. She’s been at this for years, falling back on this meaningless guru-talk that has very little substance and stands for nothing challenging or difficult. She also supports a civil religion — that is, a “religion” of secular spirituality with no defining dogma or doctrine which can be promoted by the secular state, i.e. the government.

    Nope. Christianity and Judaism have nothing to do with “being kind to each other”.
