Stillness



  • Try to do nothing
  • And you are doing something
  • Not that it matters

The greatest sound is silence. In movement, there can be stillness. One often accomplishes the most by doing nothing. Do not be enslaved to the modern idea that time spend doing nothing is wasted. There is nothing to do, yet all gets done. Spend the morning just laying in bed. Listen to the raindrops on the roof and the window. They are speaking to you.
