The one who sees inaction in action, and action in inaction,
is a wise person. ~ Bhagavad Gita

When I Googled quotes about inaction versus action, most of them touted the latter, stating that the former would basically get you nowhere.  However, I am beginning to think along the lines of Gita — that sometimes it’s in the inaction when monumental action(s) take place.  Things like healing (ills of the body, or of the heart).  Or maybe you’re in the waiting place and there’s really nothing you can do but sit back and be patient, trusting that all variables are in place and everything will work out in the end.  I believe it’s the wise person who knows when to act and when not to in order to achieve whatever it is they’re banking on.  It’s better than spinning our wheels, anyway, and I’m betting we’ll have a lot more energy to enjoy our success(es) in the long run.

Do you ever allow inaction to guide your steps?
