Don’t Do, Just Be

Not doing anything is generally considered wrong in a society completely dependent on people doing stuff. All the progress that man has made has been due to action. This has given rise to a doing mentality in the developed world.

The trick for any spiritual practice like Yoga Nidra, mindfulness, or meditation is to not make it a task, where you feel like you are doing something, but let it just be an awareness of your body, thoughts and where your mind is going, acting as a silent witness.

We just have to be, not do anything.
