“We can think of life as having three levels, and we can call those levels “beingness,” “doingness,” and “havingness.” Beingness is the basic experience of being alive and conscious. It is the experience we have in deep meditation, the experience of being totally complete and at rest within oneself. Doingness is movement and activity, it stems from the natural creative energy that flows through every living thing and is the source of our vitality. Havingness is the state of being in relationship with other people and things in the Universe. It is the ability to allow and accept things and people into our lives; to comfortably occupy the same space with them.
Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: They try to HAVE more things or more money, in order to DO more of what they want, so that they will BE happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first BE who you really are, then DO what you need to do, in order to HAVE what you want.”
