What if non-doing was the most effective doing?

We've been brought up to be constantly industrious. This is the way to effectiveness. Get stuff done.


And yes, a fair dose of that is necessary.

But it's not enough.


It's not enough when doing becomes your default because you don't know what to do. 

At those times, non-doing is your best friend. It allows a quiet wisdom to surface, a wisdom that's in you but rarely gets an outing because you're too busy.


The thing is it takes some trust to access this wisdom. Because non-doing feels like laziness and we're strongly conditioned against it.  But you have to trust. Trust that this quiet wisdom can only be accessed by quietness.

Some people call it meditation.
