The to-do list
Maybe we should be putting some attention on removing things, on decluttering our life and creating some spaciousness around us.
Doing nothing (no thing)
I have been alerted to the metaphor of the archer by Dr Mark Reid, an academic hospital doctor who works in Colorado. He reminded me that for the experienced and well-trained archer, there is nothing new to add or to learn. Improving the accuracy of the arrow is as a result of less. “Less movement. Less distraction. Less effort”.
For the non-archer learning, these skills are available through a daily meditation practice. Less anxiety. Less stress. Less pain. Less fatigue. … longer healthspan.
