From Becoming to Being

One of the most important milestones along the way back to our own true self is not just to have an intellectual understanding of, but to actually see, to feel, to experience, the difference between becoming and being.

Being is always here and now.

Becoming is always somewhere else, in another time.

And the way to discover Being is by watching becoming. Being is the vantage point from which one witnesses becoming.

-purushottama

This post is from a collection of essays, stories, insights and poems that have occurred to me along the Way titled Here to Now and Behind.

Here Osho speaks more fully on becoming and Being here.
