The life balances between Being and Doing
To exists, to survive, you have to do much. And then, by and by, your activity becomes a barrier to knowing your being. Your activity is your circumference- you live on it, you cannot live without it. But it is only the circumference, it is not you, it not the centre.
Life has two balances, one is of being and other is of doing. Your being is your nature. It is with you always, you do not have to do anything to get it. It is already the case, you are it. It is not that you possess it, not even that a distance exists between you and it- you are it. You are your being. Doing is an achievement what so ever you do is not already the case. IF you do it, it will happen, if you do not do it, it will not happen. All that is not already the case is not your being.
To exists, to survive, you have to do much. And then, by and by, your activity becomes a barrier to knowing your being. Your activity is your circumference- you live on it, you cannot live without it. But it is only the circumference, it is not you, it not the centre. What so ever you have is the achievement of your doing, having is the result of doing. But the centre is surrounded, engulfed by your doing and your having.
What so ever you have is not your being. And what so ever you do or can do is not your being. Your being precedes all doing. Your being precedes all your possessions, all your having. But the mind is constantly involved in doing and having. Beyond mind or below mind exists your being. How to penetrate into that centre is what religions have been seeking. this is what has always been the search of all those who are interested in knowing the basic reality of human existence, the ultimate core, the substance of your being. Unless you understand this division between the circumference and the centre, you will not be able understand the whole.
So, note the distinction. What so ever you have- money, knowledge, prestige, what so ever you have - it is not you. You have them, they are your possessions, you are different from them. Secondly what so ever you do is not your being. You may do it or you may not do it. For example you laugh but you may laugh or you may not laugh you run but you may run or you may not run. But you are and there is no choice. you cannot choose your being, you are already there.
Action is a choice, you may choose you may not choose you may do "this" your may not do "this" you may become a saint or you may become a thief but your sainthood and your thief hood are both doings. You can choose, you can change. A saint can become a thief and a thief can become a saint but this not your being. Your being precedes your saint hood, your thief hood.
