Being rather than Do

“The Kingdom of God is within you.” – Jesus

Rather than thinking you need to go out and do compassionate, creative, loving things or do things to bring peace and hope into the world, concentrate on simply being these attributes or being the Kingdom. Here’s the logic: God’s Kingdom is within you, and therefore is you. So, be that Kingdom. Not random acts of love, compassion and creativity, but being these attributes in every moment and every place you go, whatever you are doing. Wherever you go, the Kingdom of God goes.

…if the source of inspired living and leadership is unconditionally available and accessible in every moment within you, then the only thing that changes is whether you are choosing to depend upon it.
