Coromandel, New Zealand

Sometimes it is great not to do anything.  Not to meditate, listen to music, watch tv, surf the internet, blog, talk to someone, think, exercise, or do anything at all.  We think we always have to do something.  We feel guilty being idle, remembering everything that "needs" doing.

We can just sit peacefully, looking around (or not), our mind falling silent as the thoughts glide by our consciousness unimpeded.

There is great power in being.  Being is often more powerful than doing.  We think that we always have to do something in order to accomplish something.  Doing can be a gigantic waste of time.  Being can give us the clarity to do just the thing that we need to do.

Let's not do anything until we are compelled to do so.
