Actionless Action

Swimming with, rather than against the currents. It is not a fight. There is no trying. Letting go of ideological demands of where we want things to be. Accepting where things are. Not passively. Seeing and responding to the true demands of the situation. Taking the steps that are natural, easy, desired, and inevitable. Flow is the point of engagement where we are pushing ourselves, but not anxious. It comes with engagement, curiosity, focus and connection to things as they are. It comes with a release of awareness of our self-conscious separation from what is going on around us. 'Through gentle persistence and a compliance with the specific shape of a problem, an obstacle can be worked round and gradually eroded.' (Wu Wei - The Book of Life)
