Daily Tao - 43

The softest force in the universe
can overcome the hardest of objects.

can pass through the space between atoms.

That's how I know
about the power of doing nothing.

The silent teachings
and the power of doing nothing
can only be understood
by a few people.

Daily Tao - 43   

wu wei, deliberate non-action, conscious non-action and spontaneous action
Daniel Berrigan had the Buddha say: "Don't just do something, stand there."
