`To Be` is fashionable
To be more than happy with what you have achieved so far, and less enthusiastic about all the material wealth accumulated so far.
„We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meanwhile, the man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and every particle is related, the eternal ONE.
What do you say about this: `To be` more in control of your own thoughts and free from any attachement that holds you in place? Isn’t it more appealing?
There is also the option `to be` trully honest with what really matters. This happens when you are not tempted anymore by beautiful words, that are actually false, lying to life no matter in which tone their are sang.
`To be` is now more fashinable to the disappointment of `to have` and `to do`, simply because the first is the one making a difference in life. What you now own can dissipate in an instant. You can accumulate wealth that you may never enjoy for real. It happens that you feel that you would stand upside down to get everything you dreamed … but nothing ever happens. Why is that? Well those dreams are empty of you, seeker of happiness … and this is what they’ll be: empty things you own, that offer you the illusion of richess.
To have the results that others expect from you, without enjoying every small successes is just like when you give energy and precious minutes on a platter of gold for the benefit of obtaining intangible assets. Completely vide!
Just remember this one last Emerson idea Only what we have inside can be seen in the outside!
