“When drastic change and chaos occur in your life, a very effective antidote is inactivity. During the period of chaos, when everything you attempt to do to remedy a situation backfires, or you have to undo everything that has been done and start all over again, stop immediately and do nothing. Wait until the dust settles and most likely, you will see a clear path obviously laid in front of you.
Doing nothing is easier said than done, especially when one’s life has been turned upside down. It requires tremendous power of endurance and the ability to act against every instinct of our nature, which attempts continuously to repair the situation.
When you immerse yourself in inactivity, you are also gathering and nurturing your inner strength. By doing so, without anxiety and with a detached spirit, you are able to focus yourself and thus create a force of powerful momentum and unshakable clarity. When you recognize the proper time to act, this new found energy will aid you in realizing your desired result.”
Chin-Ning Chu, in “Thick Face, Black Heart”
