Nothing to do. Nowhere to go.
Now that sounds blissful to me.
But it was not always the case. I used o frantically, manically fill my day with lots of ‘important’ things to do: scheduling back-to-back appointments, signing up for yet another course, joining another group, checking my emails and social media incessantly, shopping for that must-have-item. It took me a long time to release my addiction to busy, even though I knew that Nothing was important. As I mention in the March be Happy Notes, Nothing is the key to unlock your creativity, wisdom, truth and happiness.
So why try to avoid it at all costs? For me, Nothing was not yet Everything (with a twist). It meant that my worth was nothing. Benjamin Hoff, author of “The Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet”, believes that many of us confuse Nothing or Emptiness or Stillness with Loneliness. All the doing in the world will not relieve you from Loneliness and only “discarding the emptiness of the Big Congested Mess, we discover the fullness of Nothing.”
Let me know what you find!
Be Happy, Kerstin
