    Non-Action is a very high level achievement. if one simply stays still for a long time without any movement, that is not Non-Action, because his heart is still jumping, his blood is still flowing, etc. even if one dies, he is not necessarily Actionless either, because his souls will move, think, etc.

    The Scripture of Forty-nine Chapters says:
    When one's six-roots are clean, and both his outer and inner part are thoroughly illuminated, and he is free from all defilements, then, he is able to practice the Non-Action (non-doing/Moe-Whai).

    The Scripture of Forty-nine Chapters aslo says:
    All beings are illusory created; they fall into various appearances because of their various causes. You should realize that enjoyments are equal to sufferings, and terminate all of them by One thought to reach the Non-action.

    Nice post, Alphone.

    Non-action does not exclude action, it just means there is no-one there who is acting. Just the action is there, and it is perfect in all aspects since it comes from the source of being.
