Being does not need to be figured out in order to be...
I think I get your point . . . and . . . at some . . . uhhh . . . point in one's growth, I think it's a valid observation.
Probably a majority of folks--particularly . . . the old theme . . . those mangled the first years of life resulting in bone marrow insecurities . . .
--tons of performance orientation
To tell such folks to JUST BE is typically met with incredulity and mystified cluelessness as what they "should" or "shouldn't" do next. I remember. I
was one of those blokes in my youth and probably into my 20's or even later.
For millions of folks, it takes a LOT of pondering, LEARNING . . . and even no small amount of experimentation to sort out even WHAT the difference is
between BEING vs DOING.
And even when they begin to get a grasp of that difference . . . they begin to ponder--
Oh, I can BE me? Hmmmmm . . .
What is me?
Who is me?
How is me?
What do I want me to be?
Telling some folks to JUST BE can readily result in long moments of mystified catatonia.
Then there's 'the art of becoming' . . .
