Non-doing does not mean inaction. Love yourself through stuckness.

While there will always be a part of you that finds comfort in complacency and overwhelm in the presence of change, the key is to encourage yourself in every step, and to be patient when results may vary, so you can support yourself in learning that positive change won’t always be fast or easy but it’s never as difficult as we believe it to be.

When we love ourselves too deeply to be stagnant and respect the divine too deeply to stand in the way of our next incredible milestone of expression, the beauty of tangible change is a gift to receive and never a punishment to endure. To find this truth and embody it fully, we must dare to love ourselves more, not less, no matter the time it takes to change, regardless how often we seem to miss the mark, and despite the kicking, screaming, begging and pleading that only needs more of your loving support to shift old patterns into new possibilities.

— Matt Kahn

My take aways from the above quote:

  • Complacency feels good because no risks are taken. Comfort zone is defined by fears.
  • Non-doing does not mean inaction.
  • It is natural to be overwhelmed by change and uncertainty.
  • Love yourself through complacency, inaction, stagnation, stuckness.
  • Trust the dharma, the process, the Universe, move out of its way and let it unfold.

  1. Very true. That time a creative work is “just sitting there” is when it really comes to fruition.
