Can you do nothing for two minutes?
I'm sure some of you have already seen this. This is a great way to take a short break and centre yourself.
See if you can......
This is also available as an App with a choice of different backgrounds and times to choose from. And it's free :)
actually the answer is no. because it is impossible to do nothing. the flesh bread and the heart pumps the cell do their jobs. and even if you are not doing anny thing with your flesh your mind and spirit are doing something. just the fact that you are aware of doing nothing for 2 minutes means that you are doing something. and lets say you unplug the flesh and the mind and go above in spirit you are still doing something. to someone outside you can appear to do nothing but it is only a false appearence made by a wrong observation or a bad deduction.

I have to tell you a story here...After a hectic day of raising four kids ten and under, alone all day, housework, laundry, all of that- I'd finally get them into bed.
I would then immediately go into my bedroom, lay down on my back, and watch the ceiling fan go around and around.
I never thought anything, just laid there, centered on the fan. I had no idea it was a form of meditation- all I knew was it was so darned peaceful and quiet....I can still do this, and Wade even has a ceiling fan in his bedroom. I just lie there, watching the blades and the patterns. I think nothing, do nothing.
I had no idea at the time that this was meditation...as I said. I just knew that my mind, body and soul all needed this break from reality.
So try this if you cannot just be still- try watching a fan go round and think of nothing.
It empties your brain like crazy!
Great post, BTW!
