A Lifetime Doing Nothing (Story 65 excerpt)

December 21, 2022

Story 65 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

From my small hut atop a hill in Maharashtra, I could watch the farmers on the plains below. Late afternoon was my favorite time of day. The cow dust hour, it was called, and for good reason. The cows kicked up reddish dust as they were herded home from the pastures. The farmers sang...

Story 64 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

When someone says hello to me in Korean, I invariably reply “kamsahamnida.” My response is immediate and trips naturally off my tongue. Unfortunately “kamsahamnida” does not mean “hello.” It means, “thank you.” But I don’t care. To my ear, “kamsahamnida” sounds like a greeting. It sounds more like a...

A Lifetime Doing Nothing (Story 63 excerpt)

December 14, 2022

Story 63 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

I like to bake bread. Actually, the bread bakes itself; I simply facilitate the process. I add the flour to the yeast and water. I then knead the mixture, but even in this most tactile of experiences I am more an engaged observer than a creator. Kneading continues until the mixture reveals to my hands and fingers that the mixture is well kneaded. I do not know how long this takes,...

Story 62 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

Because we aren't trying to get better or happier or stronger or wealthier, our life advice no longer needs to come from style gurus and lifestyle coaches. (What is a lifestyle anyway? And why does it need coaching?) Of course, we aren't trying to get sadder or weaker or poorer either. We are simply living a more unconditioned life, a more honest life, more content with our lot. We have not exchanged one overtly conditioned mindset for another,...

A Lifetime Doing Nothing (Story 61 excerpt)

December 07, 2022

Story 61 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

When I was young, we were a family of four living in a small apartment. At the time, especially as a teenager, I bemoaned my lot in life and wished I lived in a far grander home like a few of my friends.

My mother fancied herself a philosopher. She read Lin Yutang and Richard Needham of the Toronto Globe and Mail. My father was an army guy, a vet who lived for hockey and football. My mother had no one with whom she could discuss the issues of the day until I came along. Newspaper in hand, she would come at me as I was getting dressed to go out and play and begin by saying, “This is quite interesting…” Then...

A Lifetime Doing Nothing (Story 60 excerpt)

Story 60 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

As one proceeds on the non-doing path, the simpler life becomes. The simplicity refers to a lessening of inner confusion, not necessarily to fewer possessions. A letting go or a discarding happens naturally to all the habitual mind patterns that we immerse ourselves in. Again, it’s the craving for and our attachment to our chosen modes of escape...

A Lifetime Doing Nothing (Story 59 excerpt)

November 30, 2022

Story 59 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

I have spent most of my adult life avoiding gainful employment. I remember telling my guidance counselor at the age of fourteen that I wanted to be a shepherd. I pictured myself lazing under a giant oak, my trusty staff at my side, ready to rescue any wayward sheep. But shepherding was not on his list of future occupations, so he checked off actuary for me. For years I thought the two were synonymous.
