doing, BEING, Part 1

There is a wonderful article in issue Number 28, Spring 2000 written by Cynthia Lenssen. I find it most helpful in my personal journey to BEING. I want to share it with you, my readers.

doing, BEING (part 1)

My needs were urgent; my daughter suffered from a fatal genetic illness. The fears – and hopes – I’d brought to my first seminar with Mary fueled me. Shy as I was, within the first hour of class my hand shot up. “Mary, what do you do when…?” “I don’t do anything.” “But when you do the XYZ Flow…?” “I don’t do anything.” “I mean, if you do the …?” “I don’t do anything.” Embarrassed, I gave up until, an hour or two later, excitement again swept caution away: “Mary! What do you do if…?” “I don’t do anything.”

Okay, what was up? How could she be so cruel? Surely my questions were important! I had a sick child to take care of! I needed help, to know what I could do, how I could make Lucy better!

After five or six of these interchanges, I carefully phrased my questions, avoiding the word “do”, so as to get the information I wanted. It was years before I began to hear the Truth Mary was offering me: There is No Thing to be done – only BEING. In Jin Shin Jyutsu there is nothing to fix, to force, to prod, to convince, to direct. There is listening to the Flow, BEING the Flow, listening for and appreciating each unique, momentary expression of the Perfect Blueprint.
