Being

You were born an original. Don't die a copy.

It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not.

Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?

~ Fanny Brice

Being-Doing

To do is to be.

~ Descartes

Being-Doing

To be is to do.

Doo-bee-doo-bee-doo.

Being-Doing

I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with fates and actions of human beings.

~ Albert Einstein

Being-Doing

The most important human endeavor is the striving for morality in our actions. Our inner balance and even our very existence depend on it. Only morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to life.

~ Albert Einstein

Being-Doing

How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.

~ Coco Chanel

Being-Doing

Each of us literally chooses, by his way of attending to things, what sort of universe he shall appear to himself to inhabit.

We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being. As a result, men are valued not for what they are but for what they do or what they have, for their usefulness.

It's not true that nice guys finish last. Nice guys are winners before the game even starts.

Being-Doing

We think there’s someplace other than here to get to that’s what drives the whole pursuit. Only when the pursuit ceases, is it possible to recognize what comprises you: pure being, pure consciousness. This is actually the very substance of your own self and being.

~ Adyashanti

Being-Doing

Does the rose have to do something? No, the purpose of a rose is to be a rose. Your purpose is to be yourself. You don't have to run anywhere to become someone else. You are wonderful just the way you are. This teaching of the Buddha allows us to enjoy ourselves, the blue sky, and everything that is refreshing and healing in the present moment. We already have everything we are looking for, everything we want to become. We are already a Buddha so why not just take the hand of another Buddha and practice walking meditation? Just be. Just being in the moment in this place is the deepest practice of meditation. The Heart Sutra says that there is "nothing to attain". We meditate not to attain enlightenment, because enlightenment is already in us. We don't need to search anywhere. We don't need to practice to obtain some high position. We can enjoy every moment. People talk about entering nirvana, but we are already there. Aimlessness and nirvana are one. We have everything we need to make the present moment the happiest in our life, even if we have a cold or a headache. We don't have to wait until we get over our cold to be happy. Having a cold is part of life. I am happy in the present moment. I do not ask for anything else. I do not expect any additional happiness. Aimlessness is stopping and realizing the happiness that is already available.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Being-Doing

Wherever you focus your mind that is where you will be.

~ Michael Cole

Being-Doing

We seek an enlargement of our being. We want to be more than ourselves... We want to see with other eyes, to imagine with other imaginations, to feel with other hearts, as well as with our own . . . We demand windows.

~ C.S. Lewis

Being-Doing

If you find out what it is you love to do and give your whole life to it, then there is no contradiction, and in that state your being is your doing.

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

Being-Doing

Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses its purity and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind.

~ Leonardo da Vinci

Being-Doing

To do nothing at all is the most difficult thing in the world, the most difficult and the most intellectual.

~ Oscar Wilde

Being-Doing

To do nothing is also a good remedy.

~ Hippocrates

Being-Doing

Nature takes away any faculty that is not used.

~ William R. Inge

Being-Doing

In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.

~ Anthony Robbins

Being-Doing

One's action ought to come out of an achieved stillness: not to be a mere rushing on.

~ D.H. Lawrence

Being-Doing

Beings are owners of their action, heirs of their action.

~ Buddha

Being-Doing

Your action, and your action alone, determines your worth.

~ Evelyn Waugh

Being-Doing

Life, is not a having and a getting, but a being and a becoming.

Being-Doing

This is what I do for a living. It's not who I am as a human being.

Being-Doing

I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I've written for myself, and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part.

~ Shirley MacLaine
