Evelyn Underhill, Mysticism - 5

p. 33: "We must," says Plato in the 'Timaeus,' make a distinction of the two great forms of being, and ask, 'What is that which Is and has no Becoming, and what is that which is always becoming and never Is?"

Sounds like God (Is), and us (always becoming). I believe it is John Macquarrie whose name for this, and for God, is Letting-Be. It is the practice of mysticism that prepares us for our becoming, by the subtle (okay, sometimes not so subtle) I Am.
