My teacher Daizan once or more than once has said to me we are human beings.
This passage is from a book by OSHO, it really resonates for me.
In Latin there is a dictum: agere sequitur esse – to do follows to be; action follows being. It is tremendously beautiful. Don’t try to change your action – try to find out your being, and action will follow. The action is secondary; being is primary. Action is something that you do; being is something that you are….your being contains eternity, your actions contain only your past.
