Healing truth: dis-identification with the mind, brings 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).

This is consistent with Christian truth and often is the beginning of the healing journey for many. Because, God does tell us to 'hold our thoughts captive', to assess them for truthfulness, before believing in or acting upon them. Thoughts/feelings are totally meaningless, until we do this. This is called 'living in conscious awareness'. Very liberating.
