  1. Hello everyone! How do you personally interpret Wu Wei - non-action? Do you see it as being passive, phlegmatic, "going with the flow"? Do you see it as being so skilled in something, that it becomes natural for you to do it, without effort? I believe Wu Wei can be accomplished by great practice and learning in a field. When you have a goal or a dream and you are set on it, you must act based on what's most natural to you and what seems to be the easiest, non-agressive and natural way. I don't think Wu Wei denotes passivity or having no plans or goals, but just that you accomplish those things in the most efficient and elegant way. It's simmilar to Occams razor - we examine and accect the simplest, most elegant theory. Wu Wei is accepting the most elegant and simple, most natural action to accomplish something. When one has attained Wu Wei, one does the right thing without much thinking. It is natural to him. It is a higher state of consciousness. It can be called enlightment. Am I on the right track? What do you think? Thanks in advance! --- P.S. If there was a simmilar topic or if this is the wrong subforum, I apologize!
