What is Your Honey?

Watching a beehive bustle can be confusing. At first it may appear as if the activity is for the sake of being a busy bee, but after some time the honey begins to appear and the activity now seems to have purpose—it seems to make sense.

If you look at your own life, and it’s activity, many times our business never produces the honey. Other times, we are thinking about honey and doing research on how to make honey. Sometimes, we are making honey, but it’s hard work and we wonder how long we can keep it up. And other times, we seem to be cranking out the honey—we are “on a roll.” It’s finally all come together for us. Consciously or unconsciously our actions will fall into one of these four categories of honey making.

Here’s what I want you to notice:

We call anything other than ‘the roll’ bad; when in fact, it’s the other three categories that provide us with the data necessary for successful honey production.

We value being busy as a means to ‘the roll.’  This leaves us little room for finding a new ‘roll’ or a new honey.

We lack an understanding of the purpose of “getting the roll’ is to enjoy ‘the roll.’

Quiet mind, peaceful mind, is the only meaningful navigational tool we have to ensure our busy produces the honey. It also ensures that everything is blessed in the production of the honey, yet we don’t thoughtfully consider its place in Sustaining our honey production.

What is your honey?  What is all your busy about?

Some might answer it’s a job, a relationship, a goal. If so, you’ll find yourself constantly doing-constantly worrying about the honey and always needing more honey.

If your honey is Goodness, Kindness, Love, Sustainability, Integrity, you know the reward already—Peace of mind that only equanimity brings.

You can discern if you’ve done your honey production ‘rightly’ by how you feel sustainably. Feeling good for a day or two is the achievement of ego. Dwelling in equanimity is the achievement of Spirit.

I know, you know, all this about doing, and aligning with your honey-but why do you think it’s so hard to practice what you know?

Now that’s something to quiet your mind about– don’t you think?
