There is nothing going on, except that we make it so. There is no purpose except that which we give to things.
I have always thought that goals, and visions and a path to the future were really important, and they are up to a point. But if we are living a life that is always on a path to somewhere, when do we ever stop and just be. Maybe there is nothing going on except our thoughts and actions. Maybe our tomorrow’s never truly come because we are so busy chasing after them. A dreamer that never awakens.
What if our purpose is to be the best that we can be in this moment, and in this moment, and in this moment. A series of moments where we are being the best. So that when a child asks a question, we can actually stop what we are doing and pay them the full attention they deserve. When a co-worker wants our help, we turn around from the computer or the phone or whatever it is that is soooo important, and make them more important….just for the moment.
And when a partner, spouse, family member or friend needs our focus, instead of being too busy to give them time, we remember that we are human beings first and foremost. It is our connection to each other which holds the purpose of life. It is our relationships that hold the meaning of life. There is nothing going on which is more important than taking a moment to be with another human being and showing that we care.
Today my friend, be a little bit of nothing going on. Take a moment to be with a person that you enjoy being with. And if someone asks you a question, or needs your attention, turn away from whatever it is that you think is so important, and turn towards that other human being and put your focus on them. Be no thing so that you can be everything.
