Being and Becoming

We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being.  As a result, men are valued not for what they are but for what they do or what they have, for their usefulness.   ~ Thomas Merton

Life, is not a having and a getting, but a being and a becoming.   ~ Myrna Loy 

- What do you do?
- Who are you as a person?
- What are you becoming?
