I give everyone in the Zen/Med room permission to do nothing for 15 minutes today at a time of your choosing.
Your-Welcome.

How does one DO no-thing? Perhaps the master (of nothing?) could give a lesson?

I do nothing all the time!

What is the curse of the human race:
Greed?

or

Laziness?

I dont know about the human race but I can tell you what my curse is!!

'master of nothing' ...I wish. I'm more of a non-master.

The non-point of the non-exercise is un-practicing anti-activity. when you can't do this, you are a non-master.

unclear so far?

I was going to not respond in a show of (non) unity, but I thought that would not be appropriate.

While I do not practice non-activity (except when I'm sleeping), I do try to take a few minutes each day to clear the mind, as it were. That may mean playing drums, hitting the bag or simply sitting there.

Doing nothing sometimes requires actually doing something to acheive the sense of ..... doing nothing.

But is actively seeking to do nothing, actually doing something? I'm serious. I don't see how it possible to really do nothing. Seeking relaxation is a endeavour unto itself, yes?

All this talk of nothing is starting to stress me out!

Matt,

You are right! Before I read your post, I was going to write a rebuttal to Kin asking how one practices to not practice? But therein lies the difficulty and the difference of appreciation when one takes time to gain perspective of one's situation...to relax...which is an endeavor. Or when one actively knows something should be and could be done, but decides not to do it.

The consequence of the former is an understanding that to perform one's best, at times, requires a departure from the activities at hand. Just like resting a day after heavy lifting, or taking a breather during a good hike. Even taking a moment out of reading a good book to blink the eyes, stretch the back, and breathe deeply before plunging back in. No moral hinderence to the decision.

The latter always leaves a burden of conscientiousness that has that nagging, harping voice whispering in the back of your mind..."You should be doing what your not doing...."

Practice at relaxing recovery...not the same as laziness. Though I excel at one and not the other...I should be washing the car.

-B
