A tree falls in the forest

A question to start off today’s meeting, perhaps.

To bring about [that] change you need great energy and that energy is denied or perverted, or twisted, when you act according to a concept; which is what we do in our daily life. The concept is based on past history, or on some conclusion, so it is not action at all, it is an approximation to a formula.

So one asks if there is an action which is not based on an idea, on a conclusion formed by dead things which have been.

Or, put another way, is there an action that actively does nothing but yet is not resignation?
