The Age of Spiritual Awakening Has Really Begun?
I do not know if the conclusions are warranted at all but it tells us what percentage of the population has the right type of perception. It certainly means that such an insightful person will mostly discover blank stares if they choose to talk. That is also a warning to take to heart.
That coincides with my experience and i do not think that the percentage has increased during the past century at all. I more think that folks are induced to wake up sometime during their lives and ask the obvious questions and are thus led to seek.
Once they have accepted a path they will then progress as well they can. The existence of angels means that no one will be without options but limited by their own ability and limitations. Seeking merely puts you into a receptive state..
'The Age of Spiritual Awakening Has Really Begun – New Research Confirms
We live in the age of Awakening. More
and more people are concerned about this: Who or what am I? Am I just
the sum of my personal life story, memories, experiences, thoughts and
sufferings? Or is there in me a hidden dimension of a mysterious
consciousness, which is superimposed by the noise of my personal life
The spiritual awakening refers to a person’s 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 Presence thus created (conscious
alertness) brings about the sense of tranquility and internal peace. The
sustained conscious attention launches the spiritual process of
transubstantiation 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
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.
Eckhart Tolle believes that this conscious alertness has already appeared in a small, but rapidly increasing part of mankind.
Following the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, I have created the Conscious Alertness Scale
and carried out its statistical analysis. The purpose has been
developing a new measuring instrument for the recognition of spiritual
consciousness. An attempt has been made to find out whether this new
consciousness exists at all and to what extent it is present in the
population concerned (college students).
The measuring instrument thus created
was used to seek an answer to the question as to whether the Conscious
Alertness was present among college students, and whether there was any
difference between the two genders in this respect. Eight hundred and
fifty-four students were involved in the survey.
My research has verified his research hypothesis, that is, Conscious
Alertness is present among college students. The Conscious Alertness
Scale revealed three dimensions of the Presence:
Reduction in the functions of Ego
Transcending the functions of Ego
Alert consciousness in the present
Among college students, the Alert consciousness in the present dimension of the Conscious Alertness had the highest prevalence.
Within that dimension, the sense of an
“inner body” (an internal vividness behind the external body) was the
most common. Of the students, 14.4% experience this feeling several
times a day and 13.1% of them at least once a day. An individual is only
able to experience this emotion if he or she is consciously
experiencing the current moment. Of the college students, 9.8%
experiences an emotion several times a day and 9.1% does so once a day
that the surrounding world is the reflection of the universal existence.
Of the students, 8.5% see themselves in moments of clear conscience
several times a day and 4.6% of them experiences this at least once a
day. Of the students, 5.9% experience the sense of peace and happiness
without any particular reason every day, and 3.3% of them are visited by
this feeling several times a day.
The second most common dimension of Conscious Alertness was Reduction in the functions of Ego. Within that, the reduction of the desire to possess things was particularly conspicuous.
Of the students, 9.8% rarely and 3.3% of
them never or almost never experienced the longing for something more.
Being offended and nursing or sustaining the sense of being offended as
the strategies of reinforcing the Ego also had a diminishing tendency
among many of the college students (rarely: 6.5%, never or almost never
2.6%; nursing the sense of being offended: rarely 5.2%, never or almost
never 2.6%). The prevalence of experiencing the sense of “I am right” as
a strategy of sustaining and reinforcing the Ego also diminished
considerably among college students. Of those college students, 5.2% of
them rarely and 3.3% of them never or almost never experience this
emotion. Of the college students, 7.8% rarely experience the
recklessness and dissatisfaction rooted in dissatisfied want and
desires, and 1.3% of them almost never do. The withdrawal of the Ego was
the least spectacular at complaining (rarely 2.6%, never or almost
never 1.3% of them complain) and boasting (2.1% boast rarely, 0.7% never
or almost never do so).
The prevalence of Transcending the functions of Ego was the least common among the components of the Conscious Alertness.
Within that dimension, transcending
thinking and emotions were the most frequent patterns of behavior. 3.3%
of the students experience this impression daily and 2% several times a
day. Of the students, 2.6% have the impression that their thoughts and
emotions constitute only a small fragment of their real personalities,
and 0.7% of them encounter this feeling several times a day. In the
frequency of occurrence, this was followed by the detachment from
external things, which was experienced by 3.2% of the students every day
and 0.7% of them several times a day. Students appeared to be least
capable of transcending the perpetual operation of thinking; only 1.4%
of them experienced that the stream of their thinking was aimless and
Eckhart Tolle argues that the emergence
of the Conscious Alertness is relatively independent of gender; it
appears in men as well as in women.
Our research findings underpin this
opinion, as we were unable to reveal any considerable difference between
the genders in any of the dimensions of Conscious Alertness.
