The Tao Te Ching speaks of the Master doing nothing. And in this sentence, the essence of not-doing is revealed.
Just as the path of least resistance has nothing to do with laziness, not-doing has nothing to do with magical thinking.
Not-doing is simply ceasing to be oriented around action for the sake of action – essentially being a hamster on the wheel. Motivational speakers talk of taking action like that’s the thing that causes movement in life. Moving your body does not constitute the only movement in life. Being busy is not everything.
Just like the gardener knows there is much that is happening between the time the seed is planted and the sprout breaks ground, so too is much happening in a life that has nothing to do with physical action. Learn how to have movement while being at rest. This is the magic of life.
