Student or Learner
I am reading a book "Healing Words" ---The power of prayer and the practice of medicine writen by Larry Dossey.
I am citing some sentences as follows:
" The impulse to do when sick is understandable--to take the antibiotic with a cold's first sniffles, to rush to surgery, and so on--and a certain amount of doing is always valuable and can even be lifesaving. But doing must also be supplemented by being--looking inward, examing, focusing, wondering, asking. Being and doing are not incompatible; they can and should coexist."
My question is: what is the meaning of Being here?
Thank you for your time and help in advance.
