Wu Wei


The Sage is occupied with the unspoken
and acts without effort.
Teaching without verbosity,
producing without possessing,
creating without regard to result,
claiming nothing,
the Sage has nothing to lose.
- Lao Tzu

Lao had his shit together, don't you think?
~
His concept of Wu Wei, or Action through Non-Action is central to ultimate success.   It means that all striving, all action should be done in a natural, uncontrived way in perfect response to the flow of events that the Universe passes before us.
~
Which reminds me.... need to get some Nanepashemet Telecom invoicing out today.
~
But shouldn't Wu Wei mean that the Universe just sends me the money, without all of the accounting and mailing that invoicing entails?
~
And no Peeps.  I am not the Sage referred to by Lao Tzu.    Not by a freaking long shot.  
~
Obviously I remain unenlightened.
