Wu-Wei


Practice wu-wei and let the water seek its own level. A stirred up riverbed can only settle when left alone to clear itself. It is better to practice the Tao than to speak of it. If you do not have a dog in the fight, do not get in the middle of one. Most people will be unimpressed with your wisdom because of their delusions of what wisdom is, so it is better to maintain silence around them. Stay on a path of impartiality and go about your own affairs. This is the way of the wise.
