Nothingness and Gratitude: Themes in Spiritual Life
The video and transcript of this year’s Beshara Lecture given by George Pattison is now available.
Love returns you to yourself
if you let it;
Love will bring you through the wild valleys
and the turbulent waters,
Until only love is speaking to Love.
From: The Way of Love, by Paul Finegan

WHAT IS BESHARA?
Beshara is a name for…
the perspective that there is only one unlimited existence, expressing itself infinitely as a gift of love.
the realization that self-knowledge from such a unifying point of view results in an understanding of the whole, by the whole.
this wisdom, which is at the heart of all the great spiritual and religious traditions.
