In every situation there is what needs to be done and what does not need to be done. Nature appears to be particularly attuned to what needs to be done here/now. A lot of that has to do with waiting for something to nudge things along toward something else, doing that and waiting some more. Some human beings work that way, but most of us have to have something to do to fill the time. "Let's go bowling, Dude!" is all it takes to move us toward bowling, whether that actually need to be done or not. It is something to do, and that is better than nothing to do! Nature doesn't mind nothing to do. That is waiting time. Waiting for something to spur nature to action. Something more pertinent to the time and place of our living than, "Let's go bowling, Dude!" Nature is not filling up the time, but responding to the time that is at hand, and doing what is called for by the moment that is at hand. Learning to sense what it is time for, here/now, is at the heart of the natural world. Waiting for the right moment to act-- for the time to be right to act-- in the service of what needs to be done is the purview of instinct and intuition. We cannot think our way there, but wait in the emptiness, stillness and silence for the right thing to occur to us, alert to how the awareness of the right thing is different from thinking about all the other possibilities. Knowing the right thing is not the same as considering a number of options and settling on bowling, for instance, in lieu of any better idea. And knowing the difference is essential knowing.
