In the same way that we leave time between a delicious main course and dessert, allowing ourselves time and space to digest all that happens within us and around us is an important practice. Just like exercise, Nothing is a practice, a discipline in itself. We spend so much of every day, of our lives, running around like blue arsed flies, distracting ourselves with things to do, places to go, and people to see we can go for days, even months and years without truly connecting to ourselves. And why? Do we associate our self worth with our achievements and successes. If we do nothing we consider ourselves lazy. Nothingness delivers a clarity about our existence. It supports us in choosing what we do and don't desire. It gives us the chance to get to know ourselves intimately. And can create something beautiful out of nothing at all. It can make our hearts sing and ground us to every moment.
