Let me give two definitions of “beingness.”
First would be the identity I or you assume.
For example, part of my beingness is my name, “Carl Watts.” I am also
“@Poet_Carl_Watts.” My family call me “dad, daddy or grandpa.” Those are
all my beingnesses. Also, I am a “writer” and a “poet.”
Beingness is also the amount of space I occupy. If I occupy a space, I can
potentially create effects in that area.
In looking at my Questions of the Day page, I found 30 mentions of being or
beingness that I thought fit this article. I've included these below the video
Concept of Size
Many people do not think they have size and only think they are an object,
Some people are only their body in terms of space. I know people that are
also the space of their automobile.
Some people are their offices or stores.
They, as beings, are larger than their body and their beingness is bigger than
Your beingness is limited only by your idea of how big you think you are.
Here is a test, the last time you drove, how many cars did you look ahead?
Did you mainly focus on the car immediately in front of you? Or did you view
many vehicles ahead and several behind while viewing both sides?
When you walk, where is your attention, on the ground up close or far ahead?
As you sit there reading this, how big are you (not your body :-)?
Are you smaller than your body or larger? How about the room, are you as
large as the room? The building? City, planet?
Try it, just put yourself out there.
You expand my beingness!
Now, why do I say that? I'll come right back to that.
When you Tweet someone, do you ever feel you are there with them a little?
How about when you read an article, do you ever get the idea you're being
talked with or read to?
As you read this, see if you can get the idea I'm talking to you because I am!
As we communicate, to some degree, I'm where you are. If our conversation is
an active two way communication, I'm definitely sharing space with you.
That means I'm occupying or being the space between us to some degree. It
means you're occupying or being the space between us to some degree at the
When I communicate with many people all around the planet and as I
communicate, my space becomes pretty much planetary in size.
The Ocean, Mountains and the Moon.
When people go to the ocean or mountains, they get space. They expand!
This is healthy!
There is a tranquility that comes with a lot of space.
When I see the moon or the stars, my space expands hugely.
When I come back inside, it shrinks-normally but sometimes I stay out in the
Sitting here typing, I can expand to encompass the moon and many stars. I'm
not sure how many but I suspect I can be the size of the universe!

An Injury or Ache
If part of your body hurts or is uncomfortable, your attention is drawn in. The
ache may cause you to focus on the body's problem.
That may bring your size down to a point. Normally, you are not a point! So
expand out! The ache or pain will not bother you so much.
I love to communicate. I love people!
You are part of my life and my space. Feel free to include me in your life and
space. Together we are stronger.
