QUIZ: Are You Consciously Alert?
Nowadays more and more people are waking up from their deep sleep: from the identification of forms. More and more people are concerned about this: Who or what am I? I'm just the sum of my personal life story, memories, experiences, thoughts and sufferings? Or is therein me a hidden dimension of a mysterious consciousness, which is superimposed by the noise of my personal life stories?
Eckhart Tolle’s opinion, our present consciousness opens up the gate to mysterious human dimension of pure consciousness. The individual must experience the present moment, while the alertness of his/her consciousness enables the person to view his or her own thoughts, emotions and reactions triggered by the stimuli of the environment.
The Presence thus created (conscious alertness) brings about the sense of tranquility and internal peace. The sustained conscious attention launches the spiritual process of transubstatiation that leads the individual to conscious alertness, new perspective and new ways of observing. This process, by transforming the consciousness of the person, changes the entire personality of the individual.
The transformation of the conscience, the beginning of spiritual consciousness, is when the person experiences that he or she is the consciousness that perceives the operation of Ego. In Tolle’s opinion, when a person is aware that he/she is thinking, the consciousness that experiences this is not part of the person’s thinking. This is another dimension of consciousness.
The spiritual awakening means for the person the ability "to clearly see that what I perceive, experience, think or feel, is after all not the same as what I am.” As soon as a person recognizes who he or she is not, immediately comes the recognition of who he or she actually is: "The light of consciousness, in which perceptions, experiences, thoughts and emotions come and go. This consciousness in the background, is the deeper, real self.”
The most important hampering factor in this process is the Ego. It means the conventional, ordinary "self,” which constitutes the common mistake in which the illusory belief in the personal identity is rooted. This illusory self will then be the basis of all mental processes, human relations and the interpretation of reality. Only the consciousness of the current moment is able to terminate the illusory self-interpretation and elevate the person’s consciousness to a higher, more spiritual level.
Eckhart Tolle believes that this Conscious Alertness has already appeared at a small, but rapidly increasing part of mankind.
