Inherent Significance of Being

August 9, 2011

There is an inherent significance by being itself. And, I think, that’s the difference between being a human being and the human “doings” that we’ve been forced to become today. That it all depends on performance. What healthy people have is [this]: their very value comes from their being, not their doing. That’s a big difference.

– Richard Rohr, in Crisis of Faith, a film by Four Seasons Productions.
