“The truth is that whatever it is we’re wanting to fix, all the desperate things we think about doing will have precious little effect on influencing our experience. Nor does it matter HOW we do what we do, or how much, or how often, since most of our doing is initiated out of negative, flap-around energy rather than inspired, breeze-along activity.
Give us a situation we don’t like, and, depending on our nature, we do one of two things: we throw up our hands in frustrated resignation, bowing down to accept our fate, or we leap on our big white horse, as the Lone Ranger used to do, and gallop blindfolded (rather than masked) down the trail bellowing, “Hi Ho Silver, Awayyyyyy” to frantically search for some heroic action to overcome the dastardly injustice befallen us. Either way, all we’re doing is blowing up bigger what we’d like to blow out of our reality.
Does this mean we stop doing? Of course not. We just substitute inspired doing for wasted doing by stopping our constant knee-jerk responses to everything. Then, with our focus held enthusiastically on what we prefer in life, the right moves to make come TO us.”
Lynn Grabhorn, in “Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting”
