inaction requires a decision too

Sometimes it is a bigger decision to not proceed with an activity than it is to go ahead. Sometimes it is much harder to make the decision to do nothing than to go ahead and do something. Most of us feel that activity and action define work and sometimes, even define us. Often, as we race through life chasing hopes and dreams, we find that in our need to get into action, we are doing so in order to appear to be busy rather than from a deep-seated conviction. We often feel guilty for not following a path while making much noise about our progress.
It often takes more courage to exist in the stillness, awaiting the light of revelation and knowing that truth and peace are an act of human being rather than human doing.
