Tao Te Ching Chapter 17-6 No hurry

Today's Tao

No hurry. Don't say a word lightly. (Ch.17)

Let's decode this.

It means:

"Don't move until you are forced to."

You don't have to convince others.

Naoto Matsumoto adds:


(荘子 外篇 刻意 第十五)

Respond after you feel it.

Move after you are forced to.

Stand up after it is inevitable.
