Wow. This is a good one. Yknow…there’s no such thing as “nothing”.
Our bodies are in a constant state of consumption from everyone and everything.
Like a weed that absorbs sunlight to grow, so do we experience the stimulation of people, places, and things.
Our own mental moves us towards things that benefit our growth.
In a state of “nothing” we gravitate towards “something” that we enjoy…
And hopefully, that outputs when we decide to “do”.
Maybe not though.
I watched a hubble space telescope documentary last night.
I didn’t retain shit. I rarely do.
But I enjoyed it, and the experience influenced these words.
I’m a big believer in doing “nothing”.
Especially in a forum (medium) that can influence a person to set creative habits that drive ones own productivity to the brink of insanity.
(I write based on experience. It happened to me for months until I broke…depressed, isolated, and alone. Manically spent on the work I “believed” I needed to do to become a creative.)
And that’s the thing about beliefs.
We can change them when they stop working.
Today, I fully believe in doing “nothing”.
(Even when there’s always “something”).
