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.
