IMG_0587Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it, How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness. ~ Eckhart Tolle

  1. Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin, And yet I say unto you that even Solomon , in all his glory, was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith.—JESUS…Matthew 6:28-30.
    You see your own awareness, I see God.

    • Thanks for sharing your perspective, Barry. I interpreted Tolle’s quote, given the capitalization of the B in “Being”, to be pantheistic in nature (so to speak). In other words, I think he is suggesting that the natural world is holy and when we are still and focus our attention on or contemplate the subtleties of nature, we experience God.
