Early on in my remembering of LOVE’s truth, one of the most challenging concepts for me to embrace was the idea of BEING before doing. Every part of my human doing screamed out, “You cannot be without first doing! Don’t be silly.” And then in one moment I got it!!!
Which inspired me to write, “You can do without BEING, but you can’t BE without doing. So BE first and the doing will follow.” A simple enough explanation/reminder I thought?
But in recent weeks when I was challenged on the whole BEING/doing thing I found my Dr. Seuss style explanation wasn’t enough for the newly initiated in LOVE works. At first I was a little put off my by their unwillingness to accept, what to my mind was now an obvious truth. Then I remembered that not long ago it wasn’t so obvious for me either.
This made me realize that there are probably a lot more us struggling to grasp this vital understanding and made me understand that I needed to give a little more explanation than my nursery rhyme of a reminder.
So let me explain it this way, there is no doing without first being, period no exceptions. For example if you believe in God, then I think you can understand that first there had to BE a God before God could begin doing what God did, create. Understand? And if you don’t believe in a God then let’s use the Sun as our example. There first had to BE a Sun before the Sun could do what the Sun does shine. Clearer now?
Bottom line is this; there has never been a doing that was not first sourced from something BEING; whatever, whenever, wherever the source is.
That is why we are defined as human beings, not as human doings, as all of our human doings are sourced from our human beingness.
This truth is also true for those of us who have remembered LOVE’s path, LOVE’s way, in order to do the LOVE we have remembered, first we must choose, have chosen, to BE the LOVE we innately and ever are…
“I love, because my love is not dependent on the object of love. My love is dependent on my state of being. So whether the other person changes, becomes different, friend turns into a foe, does not matter, because my love was never dependent on the other person. My love is my state of being. I simply love.” ~ Osho
