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…;)
