The Great Awakening

I just finished listening to the book A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. Chapter 8 is about inner and outer space and stillness.
It has been said:
"Stillness is the language God speaks, and everything else is a bad translation."
Stillness is beyond form and time. In stillness we connect with the spirit (formless), it cannot be achieved by thinking about it. Thought is form. Being conscious of the stillness we can connect with the presence of God.
Einstein said:
"I want to know the mind of God, the rest are details."
Through quantum theory, we became aware of the space within the atom. Even solid matter is not very 'solid' at the molecular level. Watching that space, being aware of that stillness, paying attention to the 'no thingness', that's were we meet with God.

The Vedic seers say:
"Have your attention on what is and see its fullness in every moment. The presence of God is everywhere. You have only to consciously embrace it with your attention."
Deepak Chopra, in his book, Creating Affluence, says:
"It is the quality of our attention that is bringing a certain probability amplitude in the field of infinite possibilities into material existence. In fact, all of material creation is nothing but the self experiencing itself through different qualities of its own attention to itself. If our attention is fragmented, then we are fragmented. If our attention is on wholeness, we are wholeness."
Every day becomes more exciting since I have discovered this PRESENCE.
