Taking time to actively make space for "doing nothing" is not easy for anyone. It is especially tough for active, achieving people to just sit quietly and “do nothing”, to engage in practice and behaviors that do not produce tangible results.
The basic nature of the mind is to dwell in the past or to worry about the future. Our uneasiness about what’s to come is actually our strategy to prepare for the future – our mind’s ingenious way of ensuring that we’re equipped to survive. Without such readiness, the mind can’t prepare the body to thrive and survive.
