As I have been working on listening more carefully for promptings of what I am supposed to be doing with my time, I have been getting an overwhelming answer of “do nothing” or even “just wait.” Several times it was simply to keep my mouth shut. I think that is the hardest thing for me personally to do. Nothing – or less – or the seemingly unproductive.
Other than the fact that I have had a cold and probably needed the rest anyway, it has been interesting to see the results. I have probably accomplished just as much as other weeks, but I think I have been guided to more things that I would not have personally chosen to do with my time. The things that have gotten accomplished were simply different types of things than I had intended to get done. I have been much more patient with both others and with myself. I hope some doors have even been opened so that I can act on them when the time is right. A few things even worked out fine without my intervention. Some didn’t.
Does anyone else have trouble “doing nothing” even when they know they shouldn’t.
