"We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being. As a result, men/women are valued not for what they are but for what they do or what they have - for their usefulness." (Thomas Merton) How important it is to recognize and live out of our true being, our true identity than to be focused primarily on our achievements. My identity is not found in my accomplishments, but in living consciously the given reality that I am a son/daughter of God. My achievements are of this world and will remain here; my being is the only thing I take with me before the Lord. It is the being God gave me. What kind of son/daughter will he see me to be when I stand in his presence?
