“It is a sacred moment when there is a meeting beyond the person, beyond the personal sense of self. When there’s no thought as you look into the eyes of another person… through awareness not through thinking… and then the meeting is sacred because that meeting is the realization of not two, but one.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
BTW: In a Speaking of Faith radio show, host, Krista Tippett, interviews Eckhart and he shares his youthful experience of depression and despair — suffering that led him to his own spiritual breakthrough, and ultimately, freedom and peace of mind. He also explains his view of what he calls “the pain body” — the accumulated emotional pain that may influence us and our relationships in negative ways. And Tolle talks about spirit and God, and what those concepts mean to him.
