Inaction

Standard

the greatest action is inaction. That is what I believe. People want to act so much that it makes me angry. “Save the poor!” “Save the country” “save the world” act, act ,act.

But really. Try to stay silent for 10 minutes straight. don’t move. Don’t talk to yourself in your head. You wouldn’t have felt more awkward in your entire life. That’s saying something to you. To act is easy. To deny it is hard.

Don’t act. You would be liberated to know that the world would still revolve without your concern.

And sometimes you would see how misguided all your efforts to help others were.
