Most people have it reversed. Most people believe if they “have” a thing (more time, money, love—whatever),
Then they can finally “do” a thing (write a book, take up a hobby, go on vacation, buy a home, undertake a relationship),
Which will allow them to “be” a thing (happy, peaceful, content, in love).
In actuality, they are reversing the Be-Do-Have paradigm. In the universe as it really is (as opposed to how you think it is), “havingness” does not produce “beingness,”
But the other way around.
First you “be” the thing called “happy” (or “knowing,” or “wise,” or “compassionate,” or whatever),
Then you start “doing” things from the place of beingness
Soon you discover that what you are doing winds up bringing you the things you’ve always wanted to “have.”
