Don’t just do something sit there

Don’t just do something, sit there!

Don’t just do something, sit there!

By Nature, I’m an action taker.  So, I feel better when I am busy and industrious…

I like to make things happen, I like change.  But sometimes I have to accept that it is not always in my power to make the changes I want.  This leads me to feel frustrated; that my life is on hold…

As I sat by the river this morning I came to understand that while it is true to say that there is a time to act, there is also a time not to act.  To stop and wait…

These days, I still find myself  to be impatient with the pace of life, even though I am a committed Yogi and teacher.  However, as I sat by the river this morning, and as I turned to the grace from nature for my inspiration, I came to understand that when when things don’t happen happen according to my schedule, I can accept that there may be a reason, and I can learn to adjust to what is.

I maybe experiencing great changes on the inside eventhough I see little evidence on the outside.  I can keep in mind that waiting time doesn’t have to mean wasted time.  Even times of stillness have something to teach me…

The truth is that the invitation to live life fully is offered to me each day.  I can accept the pace of change, knowing it will bring both times of active involvement and periods of quiet waiting.  As I sat by the river this morning I decided that I will let the suprises of the day open up before me!

“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone.  The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”
