Never Be Idle or Just Sits?

October 30th, 2006 by Laura Moncur in Motivation

Both of these quotations are true to me. I feel like I should never be idle, but I also believe that sometimes I need to “just sits.” It’s a point of contention in my mind with both beliefs constantly duking it out in my mind. Sometimes I believe that I should never be idle so much that the only time I get to rest is when I’m forced to.

Being forced to rest because you physically cannot work is not a pleasant place to be in. In fact, it’s part of the reason that I end up obsessing over seemingly trivial things like video games and cheap novels. I CAN’T work, so end up obsessing in a round-about way to resting.

Which is right?

I like the “just sits” idea, but I have such a hard time just sitting that I don’t know what to do with myself when I do. Meditation doesn’t work for me. Praying is useless when I feel like I’m just praying to myself. Just sitting is harder for me than resolving to never be idle, so I end up working until I can’t work anymore.

What is the answer?

I don’t know. I’ll tell you when I find it, but as it is, I’ve got a lot of things to do and I can’t just go testing that “just sits” thing right now.

    “Just sits,” hmmm, like something I do after listening to Radio Margaritaville. I pray, but not to myself. The day people start praying to guys like myself is gonna be “Dies Irae,” and He’s not gonna be amused.

    I’d try to stay on His good side.
