“What is arising now is not a belief system, a new religion, spiritual ideology, or mythology. We are coming to the end not only of mythologies but also of ideologies and belief systems. The change goes deeper than the content of your mind, deeper than your thoughts.
In fact, at the heart of the new consciousness lies the transcendence of thought, the newfound ability of rising above thought, of realizing a dimension with •yourself• that is infinitely more vast than thought.
You then no longer derive 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 liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am.
Who am I then?
The one who •sees• that. The awareness that is prior to thought, the space in which the thought – or emotion or sense perception – happens.”
-Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth
