Our instinct is to act first. As long as we take action, we move forward. Doing is being. A good offense is a good defense. Idle hands are the devil’s tools. These are all things we hear over and over. But experience shows us that sometimes the best action is actually no action. Our efforts are too often merely attempts to manipulate outcomes in response to our own insecurities and fear of uncertainty anyway. By doing nothing we trust that causes and effects will arise in the natural flow of life. We don’t have to crawl out of holes if we never dig them.
