being vs doing

big subject, coming up a lot lately, still need to burn that altar ... but I have to want to really do it to make it happen. came up in class tonight ... if i'm not doing something but really say i want to, what am I getting out of NOT doing it? hmm. uncomfortable question. I think i get to make a yardstick for myself, and also others (or even more so) that says if i complete X number of visible, countable, measureable things then I've done well. Not always true, in fact often NOT true, and quite well into the crap pile.

Being, living in the moment, whatever you want to call it, you know the feeling. I think Anna had a corner on that market ... maybe time to read her again and get a glimpse of her perspective. It's certainly a powerful one.
