Sometimes, it seems that no matter what we do, it's not enough. We feel like we are pedaling backwards. Nothing seems to be happening; noth-ing seems to be working. We all go through these times when everything in our life seems on hold. And we don't quite know how to get things moving again. Perhaps we need to just not do for awhile. As I like to say to my students about meditation: "Don't just do something, do nothing." When things in our life seem to have come to a standstill, maybe we just need to stand still too; get quiet inside, let go of our needing to make it happen, relax and listen. This may just be a time to rest, release and let go. During these times of rest from outer effort, we can begin to feel a profound sense of inner renewal; a new energy begins to magnetize a new outer momentum, and soon we find ourselves back on track and moving forward with new enthusiasm and joy.
