My heart medicine includes wandering around beautiful places like my beloved Florence with no plan.
This zero agenda method helps me to quiet that part of brain often bugging my #heart to”do something.” For me the antidote is therefore to practice the beauty of doing nothing, “il bel far niente.” I walk and walk and now and again drop into some yoga. Then I sit and wait until spirit moves me to walk some more. Until I experience “la dolce far niente.” The Sweetness of doing nothing. It’s in those moments I meet my purest most simple self. ❤️
