wu wei , do or don’t do


The fourth episode in Rarasaur’s ‘Prompts for the Promptless’  is WU WEI – please click on the image and see what it’s all about, I love it!





“Wu wei, or non-doing, is a Taoist practice involving letting one’s action follow the simple and spontaneous course of nature rather than interfering with the harmonious working of universal law by imposing arbitrary and artificial forms.  In other words, it is the action of non-action.”


Wu wei, non action

Busy making other plans?

Life just happens

  11. Found your blog through a prompt page on Art of Leo. I am not a haijin, but a reluctant poet in training. Loved some of the thoughts and images (the other thoughts and images, not just the poetry) here. Liked your about page too. I too am deeply influenced by the ideas found in Buddhism, though am an atheist by religion. Will be looking out. 🙂
