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.

Thomas Merton
