Be the change by BEING instead of DOING……..



“The Universe contains three things that cannot be destroyed; Being, Awareness and LOVE” 
Deepak Chopra 

I had a friend recently ask me via text – how I was doing and my reply was, “not doing just being.”  This stirred some thought in him and he asked me to write a blog – so here it goes and you know who you are…..

So many of us feel as if we have to “do” in order to earn our keep, feel worthy and accomplished.  It’s our society’s way and system – listen to the words around you.  What do people ask – “what are you doing?” It’s the “go, go, go” attitude.  Now don’t get me wrong, nothing wrong with feeling accomplished and earn a clean living but when did we become human “doings” instead of human “beings then we may have to look at some things.”

Some of us really have a hard time to just “BE.”  We can’t sit down and be still.  We move from one thing to the other.  Our brains constantly chatting and our bodies feeling the abuse of it all, we get tired and rightfully so.

So how do we go from “doing” to “being” and not feel guilty for just “being?”

I  feel the best way to do this is by being “present” in the moment – this is where you will find the “BE” in Be-ing…….this allows total fulfillment in the here and now!

As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the most simple action.”  Eckhart Tolle

“In this moment, there is plenty of time. In this moment, you are precisely as you should be. In this moment, there is infinite possibility…….

The breathe helps too – when we are feeling overwhelmed with things to do and having not enough time – STOP – HALT – and breath… will enjoy the moment that you reconnect with the breath of life and the breath resets our rhythm.  Just breath and live in gratitude and joy in your state of being.

“With awareness on the heart center, one breathes in smooth five counts for the inhalations and exhalations as if from the front and back of the heart center…..


Be the change by changing our human “doing” into human “being”…….. for being is enough

Remember, may the possibilities of today excite us all!

    You hit the nail on the head for us humandoings. There is guilt in not accomplishing. I did find a way to be, in the midst of my do-do though.

    • Hi David,

      Glad I hit the nail on the head! That “dirty” “G” word! Go to the guilt and find where it’s coming from and you will be free!

      Keep finding your way to BE!!!!

      Peace and love,

  3. Dear Nancy my BFF –

    It takes courage to be instead of constantly doing.

    Many of us go to bed at night with the question –

    “What doI do today that was productive?”

    It’s a curse on our humanity to sometimes do nothing and not feel guilty.
    Corinne Edwards recently posted…WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT TO BE? – from Sales, Lies and Naked TruthsMy Profile

    • Dearest BFF!

      Yes it truly does take courage to be instead of do!

      Isn’t it so true that some of us have to ask what we have done to be productive? I can’t even imagine!

      You are so right Corinne – such a curse the feelings of “guilt”!

      Big love your way,
