Chief Joseph Newsletter
Conversations with Chief Joseph & John Cali

November 17, 2009


Listen to our Chief Joseph podcasts here.

Doing

If you grew up the way I did you know our elders were forever
pressuring us to work hard if we wanted to succeed in life. We always
had to be DOING something.

John Cali

We live in an action-oriented society today. Even during our so-called
"leisure" time, we have to be doing something productive. We work hard
at relaxing. After all, working hard is the only way we'll ever
achieve anything worthwhile.

Right?

I used to think so. But no longer.

The Taoists have a concept called "wu wei." It has various shades of
meaning, including doing without doing, acting without action. But it
does not mean doing nothing. Sounds like a paradox, doesn't it?

Chief Joseph often talks about be-ing as opposed to do-ing. But, as
with the Taoists, he does not advocate doing nothing -- becoming
lifeless lumps of clay. Quite the opposite.

Here's Chief Joseph.


Chief Joseph

Friends, you cannot live in your physical world without taking action.
Even a choice to take no action is, in a sense, an "action."

Where the imbalance lies is in the pressure your society puts on you
to always be doing something. To do nothing is a mortal sin. You feel
guilty even when you take time from your busy schedules to relax and
enjoy a little "down" time.

Often you act almost out of desperation, doing something -- anything
-- as opposed to doing nothing.

That is almost always counterproductive because it's forced. It feels
uncomfortable. Whenever your force yourself to do anything, especially
for the sake of avoiding inaction or to please others, you're getting
yourselves way out of alignment with your higher selves.

That is our real point here today.

When you stay aligned with your higher selves -- that is, when you
feel good -- your actions will be productive. You will find yourselves
able to do much more in far less time.

We call that inspired action.

Any time you do anything that does not feel good to you, you are going
to feel frustrated and will accomplish little or nothing.

Inspired action springs from that quiet center of power within you. It
springs from your alignment with your higher selves, with the God you
all are.

So it behooves you to take time from your busy lives to "do" nothing
-- meditate, watch a sunset, sit in silence with a loved one, pet your
dog or cat, listen to the birds or the wind, and so on.

"Doing nothing" is good for you. Then you will find all your actions
easy and effortless. You will create what you want in your lives in
the quickest, most powerful way.

Enjoy your "doing." But enjoy your "being" first. Then all will be
well.

=========================================================
Since 1992, John Cali has been communicating with a non-physical
entity called Joseph. In one of his many physical lifetimes, this
spirit
was incarnated as the legendary Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe
in what is now the state of Oregon in the northwestern USA. These
messages are a blend of information from Joseph, other spirits in the
"Joseph group," and John.
