But when we are aware of space consciousness, aware of being aware, we are freed from identification with form, which is ego, and there arises within us a sense of oneness with the whole and with our Source. Tolle: That's right, because in space consciousness there is no future and no past. There is only the present, and it is always free. This is what the Buddhists call "emptiness" and Jesus calls "the fullness of life.
WHAT IS KUNDALINI AWAKENING?
Because it is an opening into the vertical dimension, which has no limit, the present is never confining or fraught with problems. Problems need time, that is to say past and future, to survive. On the other hand, if we let our focus drift back to the past or forward to the future, we are functioning in the horizontal dimension, and this results in an expanded differentiation of forms deriving from ego constructs.

Entering the vertical dimension requires a high degree of Presence. The Now needs to be the main focus of our attention. Of course, we need the concept of time in order to function, for example, to schedule this interview. But the point is not to be limited to that dimension alone. The arising of space consciousness—a shift to vertical rather than horizontal awareness—is the next stage in the evolution of humanity, and it's happening more and more as our awareness remains in the now moment. Tolle: One thing we can do is to notice the little things all around us, paying attention to details such as the birds in the trees and the flowers in the garden or the park—just notice the beauty everywhere, even the smallest things.
To notice seemingly insignificant things requires alertness. That alertness is the key. It is the unconditioned. It is consciousness itself. Another helpful practice is to watch the breath, and breathe consciously. If we are paying attention to our breath, we cannot be thinking of anything else at the same time. Our attention is in the now moment and not on our worries about yesterday or our plans for what we will do next week.
We are just breathing, not thinking. Because the practice of breath meditation takes us out of the activity of thought, it is an effective way to awaken. In fact, breath, because it has no form as such, has traditionally been equated with spirit, the formless One Life. In the German language, the word atmen, meaning "breathing," is derived from atman, which in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India , refers to the innermost essence or universal self. Tolle: Thinking, or more precisely identification with thinking, gives rise to and maintains the ego, which, in our Western society in particular, is out of control.
It believes it is real and tries hard to maintain its supremacy. Negative states of mind, such as anger, resentment, fear, envy, and jealousy, are products of the ego.
When the ego is in control, these states of mind appear to us to be justified and also to be caused by some external factor. Usually another person is blamed for these feelings. Their true cause, however, is not to be found in the content of your life, but in the very structure of the egoic mind.
It needs enemies because it defines its identity through separation, and so it emphasizes the other-ness of others. For this reason, letting the ego be in control leads ultimately to violence, fighting, and war. This is madness, but the ego doesn't see it that way. The film A Beautiful Mind does a good job of depicting how the mind can delude us if we are not aware that it is controlling us.
It's the true story of a man who is a genius but he's also insane. The audience doesn't know that he's insane until he himself realizes it as the story unfolds. The film makes the point that when you become aware that you are insane, you are no longer insane. So when you become aware of your mind, you are not identified with your mind anymore. A new dimension of consciousness has come in. The madness is caused by thinking without awareness, and thinking without awareness is how the ego keeps us in its grip.
Active Consciousness Awakening Power by Amy Lansky Phd - AbeBooks
SOM: Are you suggesting that we just change the content of our thoughts away from negativity or rather that we cease the activity of thinking? Tolle: Positive thinking is certainly preferable to negative thinking. But to be in the consciousness of the now moment and to practice awareness of the divine Presence is what Jesus means in his Sermon on the Mount when he says, "Take no thought for your life. Instead of constantly thinking, we become still and quiet, and we become conscious of being conscious.
This is the realization of I AM, the realization of Being, our essence identity. When we are rooted in that, thinking becomes the servant of awareness, rather than a self- ego serving activity. It becomes creative, empowered. SOM: You talk in your book about the pain-body, both personal and collective. What do you mean by the pain-body? Tolle: The pain-body is my term for the accumulation of old emotional pain that almost all people carry in their energy field. I see it as a semi-autonomous psychic entity.
What Is Kundalini Awakening?
It consists of negative emotions that were not faced, accepted, and then let go in the moment they arose. These negative emotions leave a residue of emotional pain, which is stored in the cells of the body. There is also a collective human pain-body containing the pain suffered by countless human beings throughout history.
The pain-body has a dormant stage and an active stage. Periodically it becomes activated, and when it does, it seeks more suffering to feed on. There is no need for intermediaries-no priests, no mediums, no masters are necessary. No one who is dealing with Christ consciousness is expressing on a downward energy. It really is time to awaken more to the love within-not only at Christmas, but every day of the year. The magic of Christmas rests with the attitude. When you catch the vision of Christ consciousness, then your attitude becomes one of joy and love and peace and upliftment. You feel those qualities come alive within you, and then as you express them more in every action, relationship, and situation in which you find yourself, you awaken even more to the Christ within.
To speak of the Christ is to speak of the Beloved. If we speak of a love or a lover, we separate ourselves from that other form.

And that separation is illusion, for ultimately you are one with all things. You are one with God.
ONE OCEAN RISING: The Seeds of Awakening.
That is the message of the Christ today, just as it was two thousand years ago. That form is God, who dwells within you, waiting to be awakened and freed from the bonds of the earth. The Christ consciousness is an ongoing Spirit. It is always present. When Jesus was about to be taken to his crucifixion, he spoke to the disciples and told them that, although they were not to go with him at that moment, he would leave with them a comforter, a witness, that was called the Holy Spirit, which would reveal to them all things and give to them the memory of what he had taught. The Holy Spirit is wholly Spirit, entirely Spirit.
