Non-doing: The practice of refraining from reacting to internal and external events and situations; meditation.

Woman Meditating in Field ca. 2002

My daughter balked at this thought. Whatever do you mean, Mom? Well, my sweetheart, it is being present to the moment,  being okay with stillness and enjoying the experience.  It is being in the flow, without exertion.  Jon Kabat Zinn says “the only way you can do anything of value is to have the effort come out of non-doing and to let go of caring whether it will be or not.”  To me this says that we let go of the outcome, but totally enjoy the journey. (Feel Good Now, p 61)  Explore non-doing as it relates to your life.

It is simply noticing, quietly breathing, being still, focused and allowing what comes up to simply “be” .
