Nothing and Nowhere

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 thatPooh bear thinking too hard 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.”

Where do you find Everthing and nothingyour Nothing? Meditation, walks in nature, dancing, playing? You may need to first give yourself permission to do Nothing and go Nowhere.

Let me know what you find!

Be Happy, Kerstin

    What a lovely post, on a particularly busy morning….one needs to constantly remind oneself to stop thinking and not start again!

    Thanks Kerstin
