Being – Not “Doing”

From Celia’s Images in a Reflecting Pool: Journal Entries Inspired by A Course in Miracles. Copyright 1995.

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.

Postscript 2023:

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.

I intend "Miracles Each Day" to offer inspiration and insight into A Course in Miracles, A Course of Love, The Way of Mastery, Choose Only Love, Mirari, and similar readings.

  1. 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.

    1. 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
