don't just do something

Many people have taken action, but if their state of being is not peaceful or happy, the actions they undertake only sow more troubles and anger and make the situation worse. So instead of saying "Don't just sit there; do something," we should say the opposite, "Don't just do something; sit there."

— Thich Nhat Hanh

  1. You know I love this :) Yes, when our actions are only re-actions to what is and we are not "connected" to the deep place of Inner Being within our actions are often ineffective. (I certainly know this for myself!) And we wonder why the world is in chaos :)


Welcome. If you would like to say something, rest assured that I will respond in my self, even if I do not respond in word.
