Just “being” in life is affirming and good. I don’t have to “do” all the time. I have to realize that doing “more, more, more” to justify my existence is not necessary.
How many of us want to “do” to prove that we are somehow worthy to occupy space on this Earth ? I suspect that this dynamic is ego-driven, and we all know that the ego is a failed experiment.

Just “being” can feel like being lazy or unproductive. And I was raised to “work hard”. I thought I needed to “achieve”. But I have come to understand that just BEING is where the Divine dwells. It is not some future goal – but in the NOW. We humans make everything harder than it needs to be.
Yes, my dear Linda. I can understand you well. Many of us had the same rearing, and we did achieve as a result. But we also suffered in the achievements. “Being” is more conducive to a peaceful spirit. And we do still get things done. Love, Celia
