    You want some examples, I also need some examples before I can explain "being" to you. It's not much easy to find "being" (when it is not the noun "being") in a dictionary, but you can find examples ofcourse.

    No. Why not find some example from native speakers or writers?

    I'll provide an example:

    Tom is noisy. (A permanent state. He always makes a lot of noise.)

    Tom is being noisy. (A temporary state. He is usually a quiet person, but he is making a lot of noise now.)

    I hope that helps.
