My Practice is Nothing

Doing Nothing is difficult.  It feels uncomfortable.  But I’m committed to my practice.

Sitting back and doing Nothing allows me to see where my tendency to control presents itself.  My tendency to jump in, instead of allowing things to unfold naturally.  Sitting back and doing Nothing allows others the opportunity to step forward.  It gives them space, allowing them to take the lead.  It allows me the space needed to learn how to follow.  Doing Nothing helps me appreciate the wants of others, and to remember, it’s not all about me.

I’m learning how to sit with the discomfort of doing Nothing.

I’m committed to my practice.

  1. This is a practice we share! Yes, it can be a challenge sometimes to get there: nowhere! Such irony is life, I suppose.

    I like that Suzanne! Very similar to what i learn. The best meditation is to do nothing, just as you describe it. Thank you, great reminder 🙂
