Being, doing, spiritual, or material?

Healing yourself, loving the world

Being, doing, spiritual or material? Sounds like twenty questions doesn’t it?  Vegetable, mineral, or animal?  Bigger than a breadbox or smaller?

Worldly success is achieved by doing. Spiritual success is achieved by undoing.

A juicy conversation yesterday on facebook after I posted this Alan Cohen’s quotes led me to realize how much spiritual advice points to just “sitting” or “being”.  Ha!  Try telling that to a sacral defined being with energy to burn up, or a mother with children to tend to, or anyone who’s designed to be active.

On the other end of the spectrum, much business advice says we have to “plan” and “do” in order to accomplish.  Ha!  That doesn’t work for us right-variabled beings or folks with less energy in their design.

And then there’s the fact that some folks are here to be very physical and material.  Others are here to be very spiritual and ethereal.  And some of us are here to be both.

On the other hand, I don’t like having blind spots so that’s why I like to explore other’s ideas and see what’s my next leading edge.  Bottom line, I am perfectly designed to look for what will expand me on both the material and spiritual planes.  I suspect you already know what you are designed for.
