"The Tao does nothing, yet leaves nothing undone."
—Tao Te Ching, verse 37, Lao Tzu
Lately I've been doing everything, and leaving everything undone, so this little reminder of wu-wei is beyond helpful for me.
For me this piece of wisdom specifically applies to my inner world, where I feel so tempted to fix everything and work to achieve a blissful, peaceful state of mind. But maybe I could let go of trying to work out every little problem. Maybe I could just go on with my life and live it well, and then maybe things would naturally come into alignment.
