...being energy...

Eckhart Tolle has described,
in The Power of Now,
how women tend to be closer to enlightenment than men.
that's why the Tao is described by Lao Tzu in female terms,
as "infinite, eternally present, the mother of the universe."
masculine "mind energy" is hard and focused; 
feminine "being energy" is soft and inclusive.
men who find their hidden reserves of being energy will find that
 new pathways open up inside themselves.
women who let their "being energy" pour forth unhindered,
without trying to emulate male focus, will blossom
into their true, loving, questing selves.
~1,001 ways to live in the moment

a leaf.
on a table.
casting a shadow.
it's just that simple.
"being energy"
just BE.

I wonder if I've been spending too little time in reading others' blogs because I've missed your posts. Or is it that because of neck pain is the reason.
