January 14--Becoming What?

The greatest joy lies not in simply being, but in becoming.  --Oprah Winfrey

    If we are alive, we are automatically in the act of becoming. One of my yoga teacher's favorite sayings is "Evolve or die." We are different each day from the person we were the previous day. Interactions and activities change our perspective, we learn about ourselves and the world, and we make choices. I would offer that downtime, "simply being," is a state that helps us make the choices that lead our becoming in a satisfying direction.
