Every moment in life is a happening that life itself creates. The problem lies in the doing that people think is needed for fulfillment; life itself is fulfillment without anything needing to be done.
Life is more of a happening than a doing in the sense that what happens in life isn’t personal. Life doesn’t happen to you although things happen that do affect you. But regardless of what it is, when one considers it good, bad, or indifferent, thats when they go from a happening to a doing and the doing becomes a created burden.
The true nature of life is never a doing, it’s always happening. Think about it, you never really do anything because as soon as something is done it’s over with; this is what makes it more of a happening than a doing. You can make it a doing, but then it becomes something that needs to be done. And usually when something has to be done it becomes a burden. A doing is personal and directly affects you and others, but a happening is something that just occurs, it’s not personal nor burdensome its just what’s there; it’s not occurring because of an actual doing, its just from whatever is going on in life at that particular moment.
A person allows what happens to affect them by the way they’re conditioned. It may seem like life is doing something to us, but there really isn’t anything being done except in the mind. Our thoughts make what’s happening a personal doing. Things happen the way they happen as they happen. Even if you alter what’s happening it’s still not a doing because it’s what’s happening.
So except to one’s own mind made story, life is never doing, it’s always happening. It’s always the way that it is regardless of how one is viewing it, it can’t be any other way. By understand life can only be the way that it is, not because of your doing or anyone else’s, but because it’s just what’s happening in that given moment and since it’s always the given moment, life is always happening, it will never become the burden that a doing creates unless it’s allowed.
