beingness

A Quote by Thomas Berry on universe, communinty, humanity, religion, sacred, and beingness

The universe itself is the primary sacred community. All human religion should be considered as participation in the religious aspect of the universe itself. It is false to say that humanity is the most excellent being in the universe. The most excellent being in the universe is the universe itself.

A Quote by Elysha on desire, freedom, being, beingness, true nature, no self, and divine

There is never the possibility of satiating desire. It is in the beingness of this one ...that you are freed from the attempts of satiating the bottomless well of desire.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on beingness, god, source, essence, and artist

Even a stone, and more easily a flower or a bird, could show you the way back to God, to the Source, to yourself.  When you look at it or hold it & let it be without imposing a word of mental label on it, a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you.  Its essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you.  This is what great artists sense and succeed in conveying in their art.  Van Gogh didn't say: "That's just an old chair."  He looked, and looked, and looked.  He sensed the Beingness of the chair.  Then he sat in front of the canvas and took up the brush.  The chair itself would have sold for the equivalent of a few dollars.  The painting of that same chair today would fetch in excess of $25 million.

The Path to Union

By means of Invocation, the being awakens,
and awakening becomes fullness.

By means of balancing, fullness becomes
internal wholeness.

By virtue of exteriorized attention, internal
wholeness becomes Communion.

By virtue of self-forgetfulness, Communion
becomes Union.
