So much of our lives are spent striving, judging, calculating— always trying to do something to maximize value. However, we mustn’t forget:
Infinite value lies within us, just by existing.
The universe is constantly working its wonders without us having to move a muscle. The sun brushing the rosy horizon, soil springing forth with fresh new life, the vibrating humdrum of noises in even the most isolated of spaces: all of that exists regardless of what we do.
So, instead of always forcing our thinking towards optimizing the next action, we can try taking a seat, breathing deeply, and striving for nothing.
And as we sit in nothingness, we’ll start to hear our hearts beating with the rhythm of the universe. And as the rhythm grows louder, we’ll eventually realize that everything was right here all along.
