The Art of Doing Nothing
There is no time
because we are too busy –
could we live longer doing nothing?
Nothing’s harder than doing nothing
Nothing’s easier than doing nothing
We need more time
growing our courage to wait
and see what happens next –
then we can simply be present
without leaping to solutions
No one dies from doing nothing
‘The Greater Mandala of Uselessness’
The Violence of Doin
There is a pervasive form of contemporary violence to which the idealist most easily succumbs: activism and overwork. The rush and pressure of modern life are a form, perhaps the most common form, of its innate violence.
To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to violence.
The frenzy of our activism neutralizes our work for peace. It destroys our own inner capacity for peace. It destroys the fruitfulness of our own work, because it kills the root of inner wisdom which makes work fruitful.
