My dog spends most of her day doing nothing. Some days I wish I was my dog. Some days. And some days I am sure she wishes she was me...not doing nothing.
Somewhere between doing nothing and not doing nothing is a wonderful balance. This is the place I like to be.
I've spent many, many hours trying to do nothing over many, many years. So as I explored this opening Menu Item on this Joy Diet I tried to take my past experiences and my present day experiences and figure out what this means to me in my life.
I found that the beauty in doing Nothing is the slowing down the pace. Being present to the now. Finding a clear mind to sift through all the clutter so I can have the ability to recognize my truth and my path. Examination. Contemplation. Listening. Learning. What are my goals and which ones truly matter. What can I let go of once and for all. What have I outgrown. Cleaning out the houses in my mind, body and spirit.
Wow...nothing leads to plenty. Nothing leads to happiness. Nothing leads to Joy.
Can it be that Nothing is essential? I think so.
