Waiting for your natural instincts to solve a problem

Am reading a delightful book, “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff about Money”, by Richard Carlson, Ph.D.In it, the author said it’s often the best use of our time to do absolutely nothing–to not act, to simply wait for an answer. Many times we panic if we aren’t actively doing something about a problem, even if that something isn’t wise or useful. We block our own wisdom and creativity and the problem seems larger.He says if we simply admit to ourselves that we don’t know the answer, at present, somehow it activates inner guidance and inspiration.It’s true that when I’m panicky about an issue, if I force myself to take some time and focus on something else, allowing my mind a rest, the answer or solution always comes through. It’s amazing how calming that can be.
