No action at all

| Philosophy and poetry | 2 Comments

The way I see it there is never enough time to learn everything that you want to learn. In fact, the more you learn the more you realize that you will never get there within one lifetime. The chances are even less if there are indeed more than one lifetime to experience. Nor within two lifetimes, three lifetimes, nor more. There is simply too much catching up to do, so why even start in the first place? Starting all over again that is. Perhaps in that regard the best action to take is no action at all. So let us then assume that you decide to take no action at all. Where will that lead you then?


hmmm... wrote a poem about this once... i got burnt though when someone looked at it and philosophized it away. In respect to your thought it would be something like "the decission to take no action is, in and of itself, an action, thus there is no way to start taking no action without an action of its own and bam, your in a perpetual circle of actions"

I guess you could look at it that way, though this viewpoint was not my original intent.
