We see ourselves as human “doings” rather than human “beings”

She:
We spend the majority of our time working hard at whatever profession that we have chosen, striving to achieve a goal that we believe will make us happy.  Many times we spend our days striving to get to Friday so that we can wind down, however when we get to the weekends we busy ourselves to the point with all our activities that we are more exhausted when Monday arrives again.

Instead of trying to “do” more, we should make a conscious effort to “be” more.

Me:
I just couldn´t restrain myself from laughing:

Human “doings” rather than human “beings…so insanely true…

Furthermore, you say that instead of trying to “do” more, we should make a
conscious effort to “be” more.

You see, the effort “to be more” is as big a misconception, as trying “to do more”.

Once you don´t know Who you are, you try “to be more”; in fact whatever
“you try” out of that inner confusion, is of no avail.

If you find out who you really are instead, you don´t need any effort to “be”,
or “do” more.

Have you ever seen a rose “putting in” an effort to grow? Or a sparrow
“trying” to fly?…I for one, haven´t.

Things flow seamlessly when you are what you are.

Once you are thirsty you drink…;)

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

  1. So brilliant – human doings. I love this so much.
    How incredible to think of all we miss because of all we do. It goes against what we would think could be true; that if we do it all we won’t have missed a thing. The opportunity is always present to do more, which directly takes us away from our ability to be.
    On top of it all, we live in a society that promotes doing over being, and the doing becomes directly related to denying our being’ness, how strangely backwards.
