You must arise in the morning as if your property were burning in a fire, and you make haste to rescue it; as if the King had summoned you for a task and you must make haste so as not to be accused of negligence; so you must arise every morning.

This is what stopping can do. There is nothing passive about it. And when you decide to go, it's a different kind of going because you stopped. The stopping actually makes the going more vivid, richer, more textured. It helps keep all the things we worry about and feel inadequate about in perspective. It gives us guidance.
