The undoing of continuous doing can take a long time.
And it may not seem like anything needs to be undone.
But vision becomes blurry, mind remembers less details, body feels shaky.
Like something in your throat, yet nothing is there.
Sleeping hard, too hard, strange dreams—or not sleeping at all.
Never feeling restful, rested. Never able to stop.
Doing nothing is important, and is a lost art.
When was the last time you saw someone doing nothing?
Why is it that people are always doing something?
What does doing nothing really mean?
Sitting, noticing, looking around, breathing.
Or even reading, single mindedly, pausing, looking up,
thinking about what was read.
That special state, not the frenetic, but the smooth
of flow that a mind can come into.
