When doing nothing, then doing meditation

A man while chatting with his friend asked,
“How’s your son? Is he still unemployed?”
“Yes, he is. But he is meditating now.”

“Meditating? What’s that?”
“I don’t know. But it’s better than sitting around doing nothing!”

Normally people are doing something (in mind) even when not doing anything. Saints when doing something also are not actually doing anything.

Meditation cannot be better than doing nothing; because in meditation there is nothing to do. There is only Being while doing is happening.
