One More Time…

May 25th, 2012

On our walk this morning I was contemplating the “why” of my life; you know, the idea of why I get out of bed each morning, that kind of thing. Certainly walking the dogs is a beautiful thing and I look forward to it. But what about the rest of my life? And I should say, what about the rest of what I DO with this life, because to me this physical life is about doing (see my previous post on Doing and Being).

What I’m thinking about today has to do with a deeper sense of expression. When I look at a tree and ask “why?” I sense that the tree is being a tree with every ounce of its life force. (Now, I used the word “being” there but it absolutely means sprouting and growing which of course are actions/doings.) There is no hesitation on the tree’s part, it doesn’t ask itself, what should I do today? In truly Being a Tree, it is doing tree things, giving us all (including itself) the fullest possible experience of its tree-ness.

So I wonder, why don’t I do the same? Why don’t I just BE the powerful being that I am and give us all the fullest possible expression I can give?

Good question….

I’m sure, in comparing myself to the tree, there is something I could say are “Karen” things, that there is some essential Self that I Am, and so all I have to do is to be that. The challenge, of course, is knowing what that essential self is, knowing what it means to Be Karen.

Well, I know what my homework is. In fact, I’ve been doing it, consciously anyways, for many years now, seeking, asking, uncovering what I have hidden for so long. In looking back at previous posts I can see this is not a new consideration for me… ah, the joy of practice! At this point I think it’s just time to step out into the world and Be what I Do and Do what I Am.

My answer to “why?” Because I Am. (I look forward to changing the name of this site one day… )
