There’s a saying that’s goes around meditation communities – “Don’t just do something – sit there!” It reflects the wisdom of action that’s tied to mindfulness and heartfulness.
Do not try to save the whole world
or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life
and wait there patiently,
until the song that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know
how to give yourself to this world
so worthy of rescue.
