Being is what you are. Nothing you do will make you more or less than that.

 

Whether you are a criminal or a saint, your state of Being is unchanged and eternal.

 

Only the awareness changes.

 

Nothing you do in the world will change your state of Being.

 

Whether you are a good spouse, devoutly religious, a high achiever or a dope fiend -

there is nothing to be done to make you better or worse

at the level of Being.

 

Building temples does not bring about salvation

when nothing needs to be saved.

 

Your state of Being is untouched

 

by this world.


The voice within the mind that resists what has been said here is the Doer.

The Doer seeks comfort and invents stories of success,

righteousness and salvation

in order to manufacture

such a feeling.


But comfort is always temporary.

And so is pain. Two sides of the same coin,

made of the same

ingredients.

 

And there appears to be no shortage of things for the Doer to do in this world.

But Being existed before

and exists after.

 

Doing goes in circles.

Being is

eternal.

 

- Eric Allen Bell
