Being – Belonging – Doing

Here I am again. Deep inside myself and trying to share something with all who have the ears to hear (or ability to understand).

What do us all as humans need to live a balanced life? We need to be who we are, while we belong to something greater than ourselves. The missing link in it all is the “doing” that leads us toward the balance of both at the same time.

Being – Simple really; who am I? Answer that question and you are half way there. Are you that person that you want to be? Are you someone who knows what you value most?
Belonging – Do I belong to something greater than myself? Be that a friendship, a family, a relationship. This could be more than one entity at the same time. Do you feel connected to something that gives you back as much as you put into it?
Doing – Here is the hardest part. Are you doing the things that keep you connected to that greater entity without violating your personal values therefore your being?

We all feel a need to be loved and cared for. What do we do to reach that caring? Almost every human in the world will say family is the most important value that they have closely followed by either friends or their personal self. Within the top 5 you will find being respected by others and honesty.

What is most important to you? How you go about achieving connection? THAT is balance. It is hard to achieve and even harder to maintain.

Reach inside yourself and find who you are and what you value. Find your BEING!

Reach outside yourself and connect with a greater entity than your personal self. BELONG!

Balance what you believe with what you belong to. DOING!

That is the path to true peace through enlightenment. AND the secret truly rich people know!

Love and peace to you all
