For Christians, many initial / involuntary initiated thoughts, are 100% meaningless


From Spiritual Writer Eckhart Tolle's book, A New Earth - Awakening To Your Life's Purpose:

“At the heart of the new consciousness, lies the transcendence of thought . .the newfound ability off RISING ABOVE thought, of realizing a dimension within yourself that is infinitely more vast than thought. You then NO LONGER DRIVE YOUR IDENTITY, your sense of WHO you are, from the incessant stream of thinking that in the old consciousness, you take to be yourself. What a liberation to realize that the voice in my head, is NOT who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that. Ego is no more than this: identification with form, which means primarily thought forms. If evil has any reality, this is its definition: ‘complete identification with form – thought, emotional, or physical forms”.

How liberating it is for a Christian believer, when they learn that negative, fearful, and worrisome thoughts/feelings, that were not consciously and voluntarily initiated by them (their 'conscious-will' self), are not 'THEM'. They originated from their 'old man / false' self, and not their 'new man / true' self. This is where the healing often begins for many.
