"Meditation on Being"

Being is what you are. Nothing you do will make you more or less than that. 
Whether you are... a criminal or a saint, your state of Being is unchanged and eternal. 
Only the awareness changes. 
Nothing you do in the world will change your state of Being.
Whether you are a good spouse, devoutly religious, a high achiever or a dope fiend - there is nothing to be done to make you better or worse at the level of Being.
Your state of Being is untouched by this world.
The voice within the mind that resists what has been said here is the Doer. 
The Doer seeks comfort and invents stories of success, righteousness and salvation in order to manufacture such a feeling. But comfort is always temporary. And so is pain. Two sides of the same coin, made of the same ingredients.
And there appears to be no shortage of things for the Doer to do in this world. But Being existed before and exists after.
Doing goes in circles. Being is eternal.

  1. Increasing awarensss resides in my being, and I am grateful.

    Doing what is effective assists in opening spiritual doors within my being.

    I don't think it is manufactured to know contentment with growth, for it becomes an underlying condition, and ceases to be temporary.
