This idea of the relation between having and being came up recently:
Where the green circle (width or foundation in some cases perhaps) is the having. We are all born with certain needs that have to be met. I have to eat, I have to sleep, I have to feel safe. Through these then runs being, indicated in blue. How deep and wide the being goes depends on the person, relationships, scenarios, environment, and other factors. How the two exist together is then part of balance.
This diagram is not my design, I’m just trying to make sense of it. Any thoughts? I might get mine organized some more for a more in depth posting, but just thought I’d throw that up there for now and see if there are any takers. No wrong thoughts, all questions and comments welcome.
