“In Latin there is a dictum: agere sequitur esse – to do follows to be; action follows being.  It is tremendously beautiful.  Don’t try to change your action – try to find out your being, and action will follow.  The action is secondary; being is primary.  Action is something that you do; being is something that you are.  Action comes out of you, but action is just a fragment.  Even if all of your actions are collected together they will not be equal to your being because all actions collected together will be your past.  What about your future?  Your being contains your past, your future, your present; your being contains your eternity.  Your actions, even if all collected, will just be of the past.  Past is limited, future is unlimited.  That which has happened is limited; it can be defined, it has already happened.  That which has not happened is unlimited, indefinable.  Your being contains eternity, your actions contain only your past.” ~ Osho, Love, Freedom, Alonenss: The Koan of Relationships
