TO AVOID BURNOUT, DO NOTHING: December 2, 2020

There is a certain simplicity
about doing nothing.
For one thing,
it’s free
and extraordinary
in its emptiness.

It doesn’t even require
that you get out of bed.

Its tastes are simple,
like a boiled egg,
or a glass
of water,
or just the air
and awareness
of the moment
where nothing
more
is needed.

You don’t have to put lights on it,
or lean into it,
or binge on it,
or navigate it,
or fix it,
or finish it.

You can just allow its
nothingness
to fill your soul
with just
being.

Nothingness
and plenty of it
is the center
of a mindfulness practice,
the sensation
of not needing
anyone,
or anything
in particular.

For today’s meditation,
give yourself
the gift of doing nothing,
whenever you feel like it,
or not at all,
except breathe.
Breathe into the
space
where nothing is.

There is nothing
that you can do wrong.
Nothing makes it all
right,
just being
aware
of nothing.

Nothing gives us the space
to surrender to what we feel
without judgment.

Only if you feel like it,
be one with
all of your imperfections,
and feel the harmony
they have
with no worry,
no pain,
no need,
nothing.

To avoid burn out,
do nothing.
