Action/non action #21

Are action and non-action related?
In our daily thinking, we see through beliefs; justification for culture, tradition, history, love and faith.  
By thinking, we implying something is moving from a sorrowful place to one of clarity. For example, we believe action is good for getting things done, brighter future and a good life.  
Realize that thought is not an action and that non-action is represented by the following. 
    • Fear, rules, expectation, doubt, desire and belief.
    • Indecision about oneself, others and the future. 
    • Troubled by the days, tomorrow and yesterday.
    • Conflict with friends or yourself.

Looking closely at non-action, (seeing the origin and purpose of boundaries) frees us to experience the full exhilaration of action in its purest forms.  That means--
    • Recognize that boundaries (rules, procedures, fear) are within us. 
    • Be honest with yourself, and see that you are a limited being. (Don’t see it as a criticism)
    • Meditation frees us of our non-action behavior, reacting as a transcending action.

As we all desire freedom, understanding non-action, frees us into action and from form.
