In order to find God, you must welcome everything.
Rabindranath Tagore (1883-1902) Bengali polymath who worked
as a poet, writer, playwright, composer,
philosopher, social reformer and painter.
“When I awakened out of the dream state of ego identity or separate self, my experience, my direct lived experience was leading up to what Tagore wrote. As I integrated not myself as a separate entity, I knew my true nature, as the godness. The totality is within me, God is everything. God, not as an entity or a being, but the essential nature of reality is godness or goodness. I don’t know how else to describe it. In order to know my fundamental nature, I must welcome everything, which means, yes, yes, this is taking place. This is happening. This is what I’m feeling. This is what is here. That’s the end of the argument. And when I read that statement, I was actually writing my very first book, which is a sort of very basic version of my other books. It just spoke to me because that’s what I was writing about. And so, it became the title of my book, How To Find God In Everything.”
