I love the word “becoming”- it includes the word “be”, which is a holy word as the God of Jewish/Christian history introduces as “I am”.

“Being” means “not doing”. “Being” means “not having”. “Being” is an awesome experience of the “here and now”.

“Coming” means “movement from the future”. “Coming” means “something arrives and I do not have to force it”. “Coming” is the awesome experience of “the future and now becoming one”.

Be-coming” then means that our essence, the core of who we are is fully present, fully there (though we often do not know this space in us well).

“Be-coming” means that our essence, our core is being met by the future with its endless possibilities.

And the “I am” smiles at us humans, and at creation and whispers: “Become”!
