Hello all.
There is a difference between being and having. Being is a state of mind, while having are the effects of being. Being is something you are, it is your essence, having is just stuff you acquired because of who you were. For example a real salespersons job is to sell. That is who they are. They sell. If they are good at what they do, they are rewarded with money. Money is what they now have, but it isn’t what they are. They are a salesperson first, and the money comes second. That is why they say “man makes the money, but money never makes the man.”
When you focus on being, and who you are, the secondary things like money come along. I don’t understand why people work so hard for money, and forget about who they really are. When you work hard for the money and who you are being is lost, isn’t that the same thing as someone trying to find meaning in life?

Being is when you know that what you are doing is in alignment with who you really are. When it is out of alignment, then you are not “being” you. Your emotions will guide you in telling you if you are in alignment or not. For example, if something you are doing feels like a major struggle and your health is in jeopardy from what you are doing, there is a good chance you are not being you. If however you feel a strong good energetic feeling, aliveness, and goodness in your body there is a good chance you are being you and what you are doing is alignment with who you are. You have the capacity to be the real you, when you sit down and listen to the inner voice that is present in all of us. You will begin to be aware of amazing and awesome experiences when you tap into this energy of yourself. Opportunites, events, and the right people will manifest because you have focused on being.

Being is primary, having is secondary.
