Human Beings vs. Human Doings

"When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind." Seneca

     We are all born as complete humans with a purpose for being here. As we grow, life begins to chip away at us until we identify more with what we do and have, than who we are. Before we know it, we're wanderers, not knowing for sure why we're here or where we're going. We get up every day, and go through the same routine, without a deep sense of purpose and direction.

     What matters, is going back to who we are, instead of being caught up in what we do. The goal is to develop fully into a human being, not a human doing. We find our purpose and direction by learning to be fully with self, which is accomplished by connecting to our Spirit in silence. When we do this, we soon realize our life is coming into focus.

     Take five minutes today to find a quiet place, take a few deep breaths, and connect with Spirit.
