Non-Doing The way to do is to be. ~Lao Tzu Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving until the right action arises by itself? ~Lao Tzu Non-action does not mean doing nothing and keeping silent. Let everything be allowed to do what it naturally does, so that its nature will be satisfied. ~Chuang Tzu Practice not-doing. And everything will fall into place. ~Tao Te Ching A leader is most effective when people barely knows he exists. When his work is done, his aim is fulfilled, his troops will feel they did it themselves. ~Lao Tzu Without opening your door, you can open your heart to the world. ~Tao Te Ching Perfect kindness acts without thinking kindness. ~Lao Tzu What we do flows from what we are. ~Paul Vitale We are the doorway through which life unfolds. ~Wu Wei How did the Meadow flower its bloom unfold? Because the lovely little flower is free Down to its root, and in that freedom, bold. ~William Wordsworth The great man does not think beforehand of his words that they may be sincere, nor of his actions that they may be resolute–he simply speaks and does what is right. ~Mencius When you act you are one with the action, it is only afterwards that the ego appropriates the act from which it was absent, and says “I have done this”. At the moment of acting there is only acting, without an actor. ~Jean Klein If we face a situation without any intention, free from fear and desire, this openness paves the way for an intuition that will lead to a decision or an action in total harmony with that situation. Such a decision may bring about an apparent change, but this change is not an escape from or an avoidance of the situation; it doesn’t originate from the person; it emanates from intelligence. ~Francis Lucille The Holy Spirit is our harpist, And all strings, Which are touched in Love Must sound. ~Mechtild of Magdeburg In the light of calm and steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles without effort on your part. ~Nisagardatta Maharaj This is the Zen approach: nothing is there to be done. There is nothing to do. One has just to be. Have a rest and be ordinary and be natural. ~Osho There is only life. There is nobody who lives a life. ~Nisargadatta Maharaj From the withered tree, a flower blooms. ~Zen proverb If I keep from meddling with people, they take care of themselves. If I keep from commanding people, they behave themselves. If I keep from preaching at people, they improve themselves. If I keep from imposing on people, they become themselves. ~Tao-Te Ching When you finally awake, you don’t try to make good things happen; they just happen. ~Anthony de Mello So little time, so little to do. ~Oscar Levant Sitting peacefully doing nothing Spring comes and the grass grows all by itself. ~Wu-Men The world is ruled by letting things take their course. It cannot be ruled by interfering. ~Lao-Tzu Act without doing; work without effort. ~Lao Tzu The breeze of grace is always blowing on you. You have to open the sails and your boat will move forward. ~Ramakrishna Inaction may be the highest form of action. ~Jerry Brown The real “doing nothing” implies inner non-resistance and intense alertness. ~Eckhart Tolle He who sees the inaction that is in action, and the action that is in inaction is wise indeed. ~Bhagavad Gita The way to use life is to do nothing through acting, The way to use life is to do everything through being. ~Lao Tzu The breath of the flute player, does it belong to the flute? ~Rumi As you dissolve into love, you’re not thinking about loving; you’re just being love, radiating like the sun. ~Ram Dass Correcting oneself is correcting the whole world. The sun is simply bright. It doesn’t correct anyone. Because it shines, the whole world is full of light. Transforming yourself is a means of giving light to the whole world. ~Ramana Maharshi
