Ten years ago when I told people I was retiring, many were concerned that my only plan for retirement was to do nothing.  I felt misunderstood and down.  I went for a walk in the garden of the monastery where I was making a retreat.  I was walking toward someone who I thought was the gardener.  When I got closer, I saw that it was one of the monks.  He asked me why I looked so glum.  I told him.  He replied, "Many people don't realize that being is more important than doing."
