‘We are witnessing not only an unprecedented influx of consciousness at this time but also an entrenchment and intensification of the ego…..But the ego is destined to dissolve and all its ossified structures, whether they be religious or other institutions, corporations or governments, will disintegrate from within, no matter how deeply entrenched they appear to be.’
The most rigid structures, the most impervious to change, will collapse first. This has already happened in the case of Soviet Communism. How deeply entrenched, how solid and monolithic it appeared, and yet within a few years it disintegrated from within. No-one foresaw this. All were taken by surprise. There are many more such surprises in store for us.’
In his book ‘A New Earth’ these predictions are made by German philosopher Eckhart Tolle.
Tolle foresees that ‘a significant proportion of the earth’s population will soon recognise, if they haven’t already done so, that humanity is now faced with a stark choice: evolve or die’. He explores how there will be ‘the emergence of a new dimension of consciousness’ and an evolutionary leap through the transformation of human consciousness. All this is explored in his best-selling books ‘The Power of Now’ and ‘A New Earth’.
