“I’m a human being, not a human doing”

Before we start to talk about this topic, let’s clarify this one firstly: what defines human being?

I checked it up the dictionary, and that’s the answer I found as the following : Any individual of the genus Homo, especially a member of the species Homo sapiens. a person, especially as distinguished from other animals or as representing the human species

Secondly, what’s the difference between Human being and Human doing?

There are two ways we can function in this world. We can navigate using the spirit, or using the mind. The spirit, will put us into contact with soul expression and expansion, while the mind, will put us into contact with schemes and strategies.

Nowadays, the issue our society facing is that we are struggling so hard to measure up to other people’s demands and expectations, and we never have time to learn who we are, we rarely have the chance to be really ourselves. We are more human DOINGS rather than human BEINGS.

Taking it one step further, living through the mind is fear-based while living through the spirit is love-based.  Setting an intention for the life you want, and taking small steps towards it with love each day – are the most profound things you can do to tap into your being. It sounds simple. However, it takes courage and work. The mind loves to control; that is its job. But with control comes a domino effect of other hindrances, such as worry and fear, that end up blocking our vast potential.

The choice is always ours. If you feel you’ve done all you can do, yet feel there is more that can be attained, then let it go. It takes courage, faith, belief and trust to surrender. Attaining these traits requires training the mind. But when you do so, and live from being rather than doing, then you are actually living. You are moving towards Oneness with all that is. You are opening yourself up to the greatness that resides within you, waiting to be released. Our function is to know what we want, believe we can get it, surrender to the process and wait for the miracles to unfold.
