“Don't underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering.” Winnie the Pooh

Can you do nothing?
Or are you, like most people, not able to just sit and be? Do you have to have your senses (or at least one of them) fed with sensation? If you find yourself sitting on the couch, must you turn the TV on before thoughts enter your head. If thoughts enter your head do you have to stand up and put the kettle on, pick up the phone and make a call, decide that there is surely something you should be doing rather than just sitting there doing nothing?
Aaa what a misguided life you are living. What a pity you have been pulled into the flow of humanity that has lead you into thinking that you need to be doing something all the time. To me it is a poor show that time with yourself, with no computer,book, television, phone, food or music; is uncomfortable and to be avoided.
If you feel there is more to your life than just that which is there to entertain you or keep you busy, then stop and listen, with no intention or expectation. Not for just a few minutes and not once a year. Listen to yourself and take things from there...

I suffer from a bit of ADD, so sometimes I do absolutely nothing when i should be doing something else. I find myself just staring into space lost in my own thoughts. Does that count?? If it wasnt intentional.... heehee :) Wise words though. Alot of people feel lost without something to do most of the time.
