Excerpt About Being (Total)
For many of us, the understanding of Total Being initially might feel like a loss and might feel disorienting, because we still feel the need to be or the need to be something. Total Being is not a Being. The language is tricky—I don’t mean Beingness, but I don’t mean nonbeing either. Both of those are experiences that can happen. You can experience Being, you can experience nonbeing, and you can experience Being and nonbeing inseparable from each other. From the view of Total Being, none of those experiences is privileged. The realization of Total Being is that whatever is happening at any moment, whatever you are experiencing—whether you are experiencing it as what you are or as what you are not—is Total Being.
