When was the last time you did absolutely nothing for at least 10 minutes? Maybe you believe you don’t have the time to sit still when you have to cook, do the laundry, or watch your favorite TV show, etc. you get the idea.
Our culture wants us always to be busy…doing something. But what if getting in touch with your spiritual side-were as easy as just doing nothing? That’s right. No journaling, deep meditation practice, or checking your social media pages. Just stepping back from your usual activities to simply be.
A good time to do nothing is anytime you feel stuck. So put the phone away, sit in a quiet place and allow the space to connect with yourself on a deeper level. Time spent doing nothing clears our monkey mind.
Don’t be afraid of the empty place. There are times we have to go deep within to be free of the stories and beliefs that entrap us.
Being present and engaged in doing nothing is a spiritually satisfying state. Let any worries and problems slip away from your mind. Allow this time to be free of any distractions and avoid writing your honey-do list. It’s in this clean state of mind that you’ll find a connection to self.
