Theme I: Habits, “To Be, or not to Do”

By Sebastian Muriel

The anatomy of a reminder is comprised of a linear process; there is nothing above or below its nature. In actualization, a reminder functions upon resurrection—the act of bringing something that was once irrelevant back to relevance. A reminder blooms from the depths of our mind and swiftly pours into our awareness. The cognitive reaction to a reminder does not include intensive deliberation; but rather, mere recognition of something that was already there. Therefore, there is no conscious effort involved in the cognitive reception of a reminder.

The composition of our essence as human beings is found in the waking moments between doing and being, in which we recognize the immensity that we are. The lifestyle of being that we function upon renders our existence locomotive with a continuous motion driven by the mere act of being. To be requires no effort, and it is through being that we divulge the beautiful tapestry that we are all composed of—the raw, honest image that resides within us all. There is no doing associated with our value as persons; but rather, only the act of being is of concern to our value. Being is the only act that has the capacity to comprehensively define us in our infinite disciplines.

There is no deliberation associated with the reminder to be, for it is the mere recognition of the presence that is already within us. Often times the rhythm of doing distorts our identity as human beings, and a reminder to once again be is necessary to bring back to relevance what was once irrelevant. The resurrection of the prepossessing fibers within us is what renders our right to uncontrived vivacity relevant once again.

Thus, we are left with the benevolently formidable challenge to break the habit of constantly doing, and take the time to be.
