Course Overview

Usually translated as non-acting, non-interference, no deliberate action, etc. Wu wei 無為 is to let things take their own course. It is not
inertia or complete passivity, but a way to cultivate oneself to diminish personal desires, interests, ambition, etc.

The Daodejing, Book of the Way and its Virtue, presents how activities coming from this emptiness of the Heart/mind are aligned with the natural movement of life and full of an effective potency.
