When you suspend your inventory of assumptions and perceptions (which are only real for you in this moment, soon to be washed away) and merely perceive what is occurring you enter the realm of grace which is characterized by the art of Not Doing. You have dropped into heart space.
When you accept that of yourself you can do nothing, you move into the grace of heart, having humbly surrendered your human conceptions of what is possible and impossible. You come to recognize, accept and appreciate that things are done through you not by you.
Ultimately the act of not doing is the simple act of faith that there is a higher power that given the opportunity, can and does act through us, hence….. Not Doing. Construed and drawn from the writings of Richard Bartlett.
