There are two ways to feel the win: climb into the open and be still or keep moving.
Everyone alive embodies both being and doing. The wind we create by running is he energy of becoming, and the wind that comes to us be stilling ourselves is the energy of being.
Being human, there are endless times we need to be still and as many times that we need to move. But much of our confusion as modern citizens comes from trying to have the one we are more comfortable with substitute for the other.
Those of us who struggle with being still often can't find the native wind, while those of us uncomfortable with living in the world can retreat into a stillness that is open but often void of the energy of living.
Yet these concerns are more seamless than how we tend to discuss them. My godson Eili captured the oneness of being and becoming when going for a walk he Autumn he was six. He and his father were standing in an open field bordered with maples and willow when a wind lifted through. It so excited Eli that he began to twirl and spin and run with his arms wide through the brightened trees. Out of breathe and stunned, he tugged at his father's sleeve, exclaiming, "Daddy! Daddy! If you run too fast, you can't tell what's real.
Amazingly, there is great insight in children. And a great innocence. They carry a wisdom they often live but seldom know. Ironically, we spend our lives trying to regain that treasured state, where being and doing are inseparably one.
Which comes to you more easily, being or doing? Why do you think that is so?
