Excerpts from the book by Smith, Huston. The World's Religions, Revised and Updated (PP. 252-254). HarperOne. Kindle-Version.
Covered here in 4 minutes:
Perfecting a life of wu wei. Meanings of wu wei, pure effectiveness, and creative quietude. The way to do is the way to be. The secret lies in seeking out the empty spaces in life and in nature. Chuang Tzu and his story of a cook cutting up an ox are mentioned here. The natural phenomenon that the Taoists saw close to wu wei was water. Water, the way it finds clarity when let alone and still, and the way it moves through obstacles effortlessly.
