Doing Nothing.

With all of the hustle and bustle of life, day to day chores, responsibilities, stimulation, relations, fun, stress..always going and going there is an an art to doing nothing. Each and every one of us needs a moment to regain our balance, to recalibrate our thoughts, feelings, physical being and just do nothing but be alone in our own thoughts.

For some of you, that is easier said than done. Many of us are being pulled in so many opposite directions that we are uncertain where to even look next let alone take time out of our busy lives to just simply do nothing. I challenge you, make that time. What if you were on your cell phone all day nonstop and never had the opportunity to plug it in and charge it up? What if you never synced your smart phone or downloaded new updates to make it run more efficiently? Certainly it would crash and die. It would not be effective.

We are not so different from that technology and yet we often do not give ourselves the same recalibration time to be effective spiritually, emotionally or physically. The roadblocks that get in the way can be as simple as feeling guilty, lazy, not asking for what we need or even not allowing yourself to just let go and disengage for a period of time.

So this week, make a commitment to yourself to disconnect. Even if for a moment and do nothing. Take time to not be productive, not achieve a result, live in those moments to just have time alone to rest your entire being. Recharge, recalibrate, update and hold a reverence for simple moments of peace so that you can then give life your all with complete balance and gusto.

Doing Nothing.
