Mother, father, husband, wife, young, old, the roles you play, the functions you fulfill, whatever you do—-all that belongs to the human dimension. It has a place and needs to be honored, but in itself it is not enough for a fulfilled, truly meaningful life. Human alone is never enough, no matter how hard you try or what you achieve. Then there is Being. It is found in the still, alert presence of Consciousness itself, the Consciousness that you are. Human is form. Being is formless. Human and Being are not separate but interwoven.
— Eckhart Tolle
