A key teaching and lesson to proper mental health and healing


From Eckhart Tolle's book: “A new earth - awakening to your life’s purpose” (pgs. 21-22)

At the heart of the new consciousness, lies the transcendence of thought . . . . . .the newfound ability of 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 our head is NOT who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that. (pgs. 183-184).


These words are completely consistent with biblical teaching. Scripture says there are thoughts, and we have a spirit/being, our REAL IDENTITY, that SEES thoughts and assesses them for Truth. So yes, liberation for those who feel enslaved by negative thoughts.
