One intention that we can all apply to our lives involves striving to be a “human being” instead of a “human doing.” Admixed with our culture is the idea that doing nothing is bad, unpatriotic even. And yet there has been a fair enough amount of coverage in the press highlighting the fact that we all work too many hours and we do not take enough time off in order to maintain healthy, balanced lives. Most of us still accept the annual, two-week vacation as the norm. The bigger danger is that we are passing this lifestyle on to our children who are getting carpooled right along with us, in this—the relentless stream of organized activity that we call “life.”The problem this creates is that many of us do not even know how to relax once we do take the time. We’re unwilling to take the cell phone, laptop or Blackberry out of access range. Whether at work or at play, filling every moment has become an end unto itself. It is as if constant activity makes us feel more productive. It gives us a sense that our life has meaning—the “I am what I do” mentality.
