We spend all our lives doing stuff.
And then planning and doing more stuff.
Our life is passing us by.
And still we plan
and do more stuff.
Schedules, routines and to do lists
strap us into
this world of doing.
We accept this as normal
and yet it doesn't have to be like this.
We can get off the treadmill.
Step back from the world of doing
and see a different world.
The world of being.
Here all is calm and peaceful.
There are no timetables
and no demands.
It's a timeless place
that holds all that is important to us.
Yet many of us rarely go there.
Get off the treadmill every now and then.
You will immediately arrive at the world of being
with its peace, gentleness and with nothing to do.
Just be. Be yourself.
Let all love fill you and renew you
for the next part of your doing journey.
This is the font of resilience.
This is the source of all.
This is where we all can be truly ourselves.
It is our place of being,
where we truly belong.
