About

This book is about you. It will change your state of consciousness or it will be meaningless.” 

The purpose of the book is to transform the reader’s state of consciousness and thus transform human consciousness to create a new earth. Tolle believes that reading A New Earth can only awaken those who are ready, but with each new person who awakens, the momentum in the collective consciousness grows, and then it becomes easier for others. Of course, being ‘ready’ does not mean that this is an easy process. Awakening your consciousness takes time, effort, and a great deal of patience!

The first step in transforming consciousness is awareness. This is an awareness of the current state of humanity, the influence of our culture and experiences, and of the ego and its wants. Once we are aware of our thoughts and realize that we are not our thoughts, we can begin to de-identify with our thoughts, our ‘story,’ the roles we play, our emotions, and our bodily reactions to our thoughts. A New Earth is essential reading for anyone who wants to bring presence and authenticity to their lives and relationships, and in doing so, directly contribute to world peace!
