#201 To Do Nothing

If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with death.
Perhaps the world can teach us
as when everything seems dead
but later proves to be alive. ~ Pablo Neruda

- How difficult is it for you to stop?
- To what extent does sadness and confusion enter into your life?
- What can the world (nature) teach us?
