More Doing…

April 5th, 2012

There is a lot of talk out there about “being” as opposed to “doing.” I’m sure you’ve read some of it or heard it from someone who seems to be tuned in to their life force. I have no intention of dissing any of this because I’ve even talked about it myself—there is a subtle difference between doing and being, and when I concentrate on what I am being the doing seems to just fall in line.

But this morning I woke up with this overwhelming sense that I wanted and even needed to DO something! Was this just our cultural bias towards not having idle hands? Perhaps, but the dream I woke from had to do with me waiting in a line to sign up for some classes, and while there were many to choose from I was waiting for a certain class to come up on the electronic listing (they were listed up above the “tellers’” windows like flights are listed at an airport, constantly changing depending on what was available).

I woke up and asked my guide what this was about because while the dream had that somewhat intense feeling to it, like I was supposed to not only remember it but also get something out of it, I had gotten stuck in the waiting aspect, the frustration of the particular class I wanted not being available, and the mundane quality of it all. What could I possibly get out of this dream?

My guide took me to some more windows and another queue. Turns out my dream was just showing me that there are many, many options open to me right now when it comes to Doing. Of course, the class I wanted wasn’t available yet which is very much like where I’m at in my life right now, but I won’t get into the details of that…. yet (that’s for a later post). I am practicing patience (not my strong-suit) but do have the feeling that the class I want will be open soon.

Still, right here and now, there are many things I can do and I know it.

Then I had the realization that while I’m incarnate I simply MUST DO. We all must. A life, here on Earth in a body, must have activity in it. Our bodies cannot simply sit still forever. I’m not against sitting still for short or even long periods of time, and in fact have done some serious meditating in my time. I’m just saying that overall my body is healthier and I am happier when I have some physical activity in my day, and I’m even going to go as far to say that this is true for all of us who have bodies. In this form it seems we are made for doing.

Hence the need for an activity, or a class as my dream put it. So what to sign up for? Good question….. when I have an answer, I’ll let you know. Until then I’m loving what’s in front of me and finding that there’s already a good deal of stuff to do—I’d better get busy!
