I have, for some time now, been working out in my own life what many may call; first things first or the cart before the horse.
Truth be told, we all have some type of flavor of this human desire to comport our lives so that we may become who we are created to be. I mean everyone wants that don’t they?
Over the course of these last two decades, I have been deeply interested in this dualistic life where we seem so often to be moving between “Who We Are”, which we we’ll label our BEING and “What We Do”, which we’ll label our DOING.
This practice of moving betwixt and between we assume is helpful, and while that may at times be true, it will also keep us from our quest. Does that word quest make you think of Medieval times? It does me. Anyway, my point here is that we are in deep need of a conversation around LIFE and how a LIFE that is vibrant and flourishing can be lived.
To that end, there are a number of differing views, and I would love to in some way be helpful in moderating the truth around these dissimilar ideas about LIFE itself. I believe it all begins with
first things first.
You and I, along with all of humanity, have vacillated between the two primary options of living LIFE; Being vs Doing, Who We Are and What We Do. These two words aren’t at odds. They are simpatico. Always have been, always will be.
In my next post, we’ll look at why one must lead the other. And why the other must prove the one.
Hope you’ll keep close with this series of three to four posts. As always, your comments are needed and appreciated.
