“You need do nothing” … is a common statement with regard to so-called ‘spiritual development’. This has been spoken of by many well-known spiritual ‘teachers’ throughout the ages and essentially means that ‘ALL is predestined’ and is ‘already done’. It also means that YOU [not the personal you] is already Home, already Free and has always been so … so that no matter ‘what you do’, the result is already Present.
All of this is True since the world-universe is a dream, and ‘nothing’ is really happening. It does NOT mean however, that no action or ‘doing’ should EVER take place … or further, that ‘nothing really matters’. The mind [tainted and sculpted out of conditioning based on the belief in separation as it is] has a plethora of tendencies to ‘act’ or ‘do’ with regard to every conceivable circumstance, however when one has come to the moment when they ‘live through the Heart’ rather than the mind, IF they are to ‘DO’ anything - in any situation … they are shown precisely ‘what to do, where to go, what to say and to whom’ – with no thought required.
THIS is the so-called ‘action’ of the FREE.
