The Difference Being Doing and Being

November 17, 2019

What’s the difference between doing and being? Doing is literally making a list and getting stuff done. Your thoughts are past and future, worrying about checking things off.

Being on the other hand is truly living in the moment. Experiencing things for the first time like a small child and living in awe of all things around you.

I’ve been reading a book called Dying To Be Me by Anita Moorjani. It’s about her journey with cancer, having a near death experience, returning to her body and truly healing inside and out.

The further along I get into her story, the more I see as people we tend to look outward for answers instead of really delving in deep inward. The afterlife as she explains it doesn’t care about what you have done on earth to become a better person, it’s about realizing that you are already a miraculous being as you currently are. Unconditional love in so many words is the key to everything.

I totally jive with that but how does that work in this physical body where we can be restricted by our past and the five senses? This seems to be one of those questions like “what is the meaning of life?” It’s something you work on each day getting closer and closer to actually being in the moment.

Is It Possible To Truly Be In The Moment All The Time?
