The new earth arises as more and more people discover that their main purpose in life is to bring the light of consciousness into this world and to use whatever they do as a vehicle for consciousness. ~ Eckhart Tolle~ (A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose)
The light of Consciousness, the Self, is the light of the intellect, and allows for awareness of the contents of the mind and the senses. Mystics relate the Self to the sun and the mind to the moon. The moon has no light of its own but simply reflects the light of the Sun. Mystical and spiritual teachings equate consciousness most directly with the light.
