Doing Nothing

One of the most rewarding activities is no activity. Many meditation tutorials warn that this is harder than it sounds. And it indeed is. Doing nothing may be one of the hardest things to do, but it is surprisingly powerful. I recently inherited some balcony furniture from a friend who moved to an appartment with no balcony. I always thought that it would be nice to have such furniture to sit outdoors doing nothing for a while, but paradoxically I was always too busy to think about it. So now, two years after moving in, I finally take the time to be on the balcony to meditate or listen to something on headphones. And it is nice. Who would have said.

Getting some plants for the balcony definitely goes too far ;-)
