The Art Of Being…

The value of life does not depend upon the place we occupy. It depends upon the way we occupy that place.  - Thérèse of Lisieux

do

We focus mostly on our ‘place’ in life. I.e. what we’ve earned or achieved in life or in our jobs. In other words we underscore what we’ve done and what we’ve gathered along the way.

be

The ‘way’ we do our job, play our roles as a child, sibling, spouse or parent appears to be more important. The ‘way’ we show up as a human being, as a student, a worker and as a world citizen seems more crucial. Being must come first. Being must come from our core values and from our high ideals. Being must also come from our aspirations and hopes. Then what follows, the doing, will be of greater value! More here: BeZenDo Revisited!
