The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

When nothing is done, nothing is left undone

In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired. In the pursuit of Tao, every day something is dropped. Less and less is done until non-action is achieved. When nothing is done, nothing is left undone. The world is ruled by letting things take their course. It cannot be ruled by interfering.

  2. Reblogged this on dreamlanddancing and commented:
    Non-resistance, acceptance, and surrender are some of the most inscrutable aspects of either Zen or the Tao, especially to Western Minds.
    Wu-Wei or “non-doing” refers to action devoid of struggle, which flows effortlessly once the mind is aligned with the natural flow of life.
    Sometimes it is referred to “the action of non-action”.
    I highly recommend visiting Zen Flash on a regular basis.
    Thank you Lou.
