A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on timeless, luminous bliss, deepening mystery, oneness, ever-changing event, spectacle, and spectator

One, two, three, four....The clock in the kitchen struck twelve. How irrelevantly, seeing that time had ceased to exist! The absurd, importunate bell had sounded at the heart of a timelessly present Event, of a Now that changed incessantly in a dimension, not of seconds and minutes, but of beauty, of significance of intensity, of deepening mystery.
"Luminous bliss." From the shallows of his mind the words rose like bubbles, came to the surface, and vanished into the infinite spaces of living light that now pulsed and breathed behind his closed eyelids. "Luminous bliss." That was as near as one could come to it. But it---this timeless and yet ever-changing Event--was something that words could only caricature and diminish, never convey. It was not only bliss, it was also understanding. Understanding of everything, but without knowledge of anything. Knowledge involved a knower and all the infinite diversity of known and knowable things. But here, behind his closed lids, there was neither spectacle nor spectator,. There was only this experienced fact of being blissfully one with Oneness.

Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963)

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on steve pavlina, soulful relationships, relationships, oneness, and connectedness

Everyone you meet in your life - even total strangers - is already intimately connected to you.  The idea that we are all separate and distinct beings is nothing but an illusion.  We are all parts of a larger whole, like individual cells in a body.

A Quote by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee on llewellyn vaughan-lee, oneness, spirituality, people, wisdom, truth, sufism, work, consciousness, feminine, and divine feminine

As this era of masculine dominance comes to an end and a feminine understanding of life’s wholeness is included, we are beginning to experience a different world in which physical, mental, and spiritual well-being are interdependent. We see the signs of this in the new age movement. But the new age movement is often limited by its focus on individual well-being. Our real concern is the well-being of the planet and the whole of humanity. Central to this is the understanding that the physical world cannot be healed from a solely physical perspective, but requires a shift to an attitude that contains a multi-dimensional approach.

A Quote by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee on llewellyn vaughan-lee, oneness, spirituality, people, wisdom, truth, sufism, and work

Oneness is very simple: everything is included and allowed to live according to its true nature. This is the secret that is being revealed, the opportunity that is offered. How we make use of this opportunity depends upon the degree of our participation, how much we are prepared to give ourselves to the work that needs to be done, to the freedom that needs to be lived.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on chanting, holy, listening, spiritual, superficialities, murmur, stream, prayer, tao, beads, sacred, oneness, breathing, and

Chanting is no more holy than listening to the murmur of a stream, counting prayer beads no more sacred than simply breathing. . . . If you wish to attain oneness with the Tao, don't get caught up in spiritual superficialities.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)
