DoIt or DI is simply action in the physical domain. It is hammering away at nails all day, getting on the phone to call a teacher about a child, sneezing, talking, smiling, lifting a box or a baby and so on. All manner of physical action is what DI is about. DoIt can be inspiring and DoIt can be repetitive as well.
The 3 Dimensions of LeToonz also apply to DoIT. We can DI as a function of purely cognitive, visceral or spiritual basis. We DI whether it is the right thing to do or not. We DI unconsciously and without understanding of what drives us. Even if we do have understanding, it may be purely intellectual and not deep enough to change the direction or pattern of DoIt.. We know that smoking, for instance, is not healthy for us but we continue to smoke and DoIt until it becomes a habit and an addiction for us.
DoIt occurs without AskingOurselves. Your parents probably warned you to “look before you leap” and that it is far wiser to contemplate and plan your steps along the way before actually taking these steps. Sound advice that many children completely ignore. Of course this kind of DI that doesn’t ask questions first is not exclusive to the inexperienced.
Many adults themselves are “Doing” a career or job that has very little to do with who they really are or what they really should be doing based on their natural abilities, likes and dislikes. Asking Ourselves in this situation may even help us justify our choice using survival and success as very good reasons for personal sacrifice. It is important to note that the Ah-Ha’s we have while we are Asking Ourselves, Letting Go and Doing in this type of situation is all cognitive and disconnected from our innately disposed self. Thus, we DoIt without regard to our SELF. This life pattern applies to a vast majority. It is dysfunctional and it is deadly for our culture and world as a whole.
Many people will continue to DoIt without asking themselves why any more because the Ah-Ha’s that will follow and the Letting Go that occurs and the Doing what they’re supposed to be doing in life will necessitate making changes that are too uncomfortable to make. So they continue to keep on Doing It is spite of the fact they are unhappy and living without Ah-Ha’s.
On the other hand there are people who DoIt gloriously and live their lives doing what it is they like or love to do. These folks are the lucky ones . . …or maybe they’re just the smart ones who took the time to ask themselves, listened to the answers and took the actions necessary to see their ideas come to fruition in life.
