From Activity to Action
Sadiq Alam has posted an interesting entry on the difference between action and activity. It's in the first part of his 1 June 2009 post.
Action arises out of a natural response to a given situation. Activity, on the other hand, arises out of restlessness.
To requote Osho from Sadiq's post:
"Action comes out of a silent mind -- it is the most beautiful thing in the world. Activity comes out of a restless mind. Action is moment to moment, spontaneous; activity is loaded with the past."
