Are You A Human BEING or Human DOING?
Sadly, most of us human beings are totally caught up in doing. doing, doing, becoming, becoming, becoming that we miss being. We miss the joy, contentment, love, and simplicity of just Being.
Even though we’re supposed to be Human Beings… Not Human Doings!
We’re in such a rush to go somewhere that when we get there, we’re dissatisfied with where we are and already thinking how it will be so much better someplace else.
Have you ever noticed, no matter where you go, it has never been the final location?! It’s never been the end destination. There’s always like the next chapter, the next place to go, the next thing to become, the next thing to do.
In our culture, and probably most cultures, the simple art of being is overlooked.
Our own being is very easy to overlook. Even when we’re with a group of other people and there is a room full of Beings, it’s easy to miss.
The mind is so caught up in doing… trying to do it right, trying to figure out what you should do next, and how to do it so you arrive at where you want to go?
In this pursuit, Being is totally missed and we don’t even give it a second thought.
Your mind keeps making you believe if you understand just the next thing “to do”, everything will work out.
And listen, don’t get me wrong, there’s a need and time for understanding and doing. But, all the time?!
We believe we will arrive at a preferable state of being through doing the right thing. If I just get my doing right, if I do the right thing, then I will get to a state of being that will be perfect and I’ll have the Life I really Want! “What do I DO to get there?”
You spend your lifetime doing, and doing, and doing. You keep asking what do I need to do, so I can be who I need to be, to have what I want to have? Do you see how backwards that is?!
And Why Is That Important?!
Because the doing is only as good as the BEING doing it! Who you’re Being must come first, for the doing to ever produce the results you desire.
It’s very difficult to let go of the mindset that tells you to just keep doing more and more. So, we just keep doing and doing and doing and miss the place where the joys of life truly reside and make our doing effective…in the Being!
You don’t get to a “preferable state” of Being through doing more. You only get tired and frustrated. There is no “preferable state” of Being. There’s just Being!
But when you stop long enough to Just Be, which is your true essence that is always and already available to you, you’ll find the Freedom, Power, Joy, Peace of Mind, and the feeling of Wholeness you’ve tried so hard to create through doing!
Your most peaceful moments, greatest inspirations, and divine guidance will all be found there! It’s not something you want to miss!
