Oprah reveals what the world needs

Oprah Winfrey/Facebook

Oprah Winfrey may not be campaigning for president, but she sure could have fooled us.

The media mogul has been vocal in recent weeks regarding a variety of topics including the Las Vegas massacre, how to live stress free and now, world peace. Because, why not?

This week, Winfrey sat down with “ET” at her Montecito, California, estate for her “SuperSoul Sunday” series, where she celebrated her new book, The Wisdom of Sundays. In true Winfrey fashion, the 63-year-old dropped a few gems as well.

“I am always trying to offer whatever I find fantastic … these are gems for the world to live by,” said Winfrey of her book comprised of personal essays.

Of course, as fans may already know, the OWN series was a popular podcast long before it went to print. “A lot of people don’t have time to listen to an hour or watch an hour,” Winfrey explained, “but you can take little snackable bites of inspiration from the book, so I created the book because these are all the messages that really resonated with me. I lead a very profoundly deep, integrated, spiritual life, so my spiritual work is not disconnected from the rest of my work, so these words have really helped me so much.”

Some of her favorite words? Those of the late, great Maya Angelou. “How are we are more alike than we are different?” She continued, “To be able to find the thread that connects us all, that’s part of what these messages do.”

As for what message she had for us now, Oprah shared, “Let’s just stop fighting, OK?”

“The soul of the country needs the book. … When we are all so separated in our differences,” she said In fact, that tidbit is what inspired Winfrey’s first piece on “60 Minutes,” emphasizing the nation’s divisions. “You can only hear your side — the soul of the country needs messages like this.”

“I’m not trying to toot my own horn,” Winfrey elaborated, noting her since axed “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “but that was a great platform every day because every day I had people from all over the country, red states, blue states, I don’t know where they came from, everybody from every background possible.”

Of her goal, she revealed, “How much light can you bring into the world? This is just a piece of light.”

    Yeah if most people in the world had the basics of shelter, food, adequate health care/reasonable rates to but medicine, clothing and a basic technology maybe then they’d have the desire to sit down and read a book by someone who really has none of these basic needs. Oprah has no idea of what the world needs. She knows what she wants to give people less fortunate than all those on her SoulSundays. Ask impoverished people what thay need and no one is going to say a book.

    oprah has been fake for some time now , she has no real relationship with her mother , she treated gail better then her own siblings , and she hated pat her dead sister for telling people she was raped and eventually she had to do that or her fans would be angery , maybe pat was jealous or maybe she got tired of oprah pretending to be a good person , with no issues . just think if that woman had not said that oprah would have pretend to be persfect that is how we found out vernon was not her dad , and she pretended she didnt know she had a sister given up for adoption well she did ,, ,that is why she was so angry at her moma , then her moma gave her up to live with a man she didnt know called vernon winfrewy who adopted her and gave her the name ,, her moma and vernon never married which makes you wonder why vernon gave a child not his his name . vernon had no other kids ,weird vernon must of loved vernell , or he would not have raised her kid for no pay .. no oprah finding out vernon was not her daddy was a major blow , and her moma was to blame , this is why mya angelou got so much respect , she was the only moma figure oprah accepted , , vernon new wife was no role model to oprah eitehr , vernon was a good man to raise , his ex gf kid NO MAN TODAY WILL ATEMPT THAT EVEN . but his was the 50 and 70 and black men were know to run off and not pay for the kids they droppped . sad .. sad .. sdd …sad oprah need to love her moma ,and stop faking the lady gve up her baby so she coul have a better life .. and oprah wouldnt be oprah if vernell had raised her period
