Rebbe Nachman on The Process Universe

Rebbe Nachman? 
"For Rebbe Nachman, living in tune meant awareness—being aware of the transient nature of this world and the eternity of the next.

From his window facing the marketplace Rebbe Nachman spotted one of his followers rushing by: 

"Have you looked up at the sky this morning? The Rebbe asked.

"No, Rebbe, I haven't the time."

"Believe me, in fifty years everything you see here today will be gone. There will be another fair—with other horses, other wagons, different people. I won't be here then and neither will you. So whats so important that you don't have time to look at the sky?!"
