What would you do if there was nothing to do?
No website to fiddle around with, no whales to save?
What if all the children were fed, all the diseases cured, and all the wars had stopped?
If we lived in utopia and no one needed your help anymore, what would you do with a day?
Could you stand it?
What if …
...the message we’ve gotten from our culture and the world at large is totally wrong?
That actually, you do have value even if you’re not doing.
What if it were true that your value is in the being? (click to share on Twitter!)
That your value is you, sitting beside the lake, watching the sun break into a million fractals of light, marveling at the grand design, simply relishing the cornucopia of art, music, love, beauty, and divinity on the planet?
And that your value is to stay in dance with the divine spirit of creativity, however it expresses through you ~ in your care of relationships, your art, your ability to access overwhelming awe in any moment?
What if it were false that your value is tied to your job, your activism, how many hours you work, your grades, your GPA, the size of your business, or how many people you reach with your service?
What if it were false that your worth is tied to how many letters you have after your name, how much training you have, and to what degree you are keeping up with the neighbors?
What if the truth was that your worth, your value, is already inherent inside you, that you were born valuable and you never, ever, ever lost that value?
Just curious. I’m just curious how that might feel to you.
How it might impact your day. How you might go about exploring the space between doing things.
Well, in case no one told you today, you’re really, really valuable, no matter what you do.
Or don’t do.
Your purpose is in the being.
