Getting/having, going/doing, ignores/discounts/dismisses/disregards what arises spontaneously within in response to what is happening, or needs to happen, in each situation as it arises. Living in response to the moment leaves a lot of time between actions. What needs to happen is usually not quick on the heels of what just happened, but waits for circumstances to develop in their own time in order to call for what needs to be next. Spontaneity has a lot of down time about it. "Island time" is that way. Fast tempo impulsive living has no time to consider the Tao's flow or the moment's need. In order to live well, we have to change the pace of our life. We have to change the way we are living. It will take a different world to accommodate the Tao. Or a life that lives to the rhythm of a different world, and is, thereby, out of sync with this world and its idea of what needs to be done when, where and how-- with no interest in what actually needs to be done, when, where and how.

The out-of-sync Divine is right on time!
