Tao Te Ching Chapter 57-10 Don't move

Today's Tao

"I like being still and the people correct themselves." (Ch.57)

A: "Master Bonbon, people are not 'correct' politically, morally, and financially."

B: "Stand up and do something. Correct all those evildoers!"

Master Bonbon, please stop saying things contrary to Lao Tzu's teachings.

Lao Tzu doesn't move, and people will transform themselves naturally.

Of course, yes, because the word "people" suggests your hologram.

You don't have to do anything, and your hologram (=the world) will find the best way.

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

When your body doesn't move naturally, this maxim of Chuang Tzu will give you the courage not to react.

Tao answers your question!

☞Masanobu Fukuoka's idea is revolutionising agriculture. He worked in many projects of replantation of deserts in Asia and Africa and won Ramon Magsaysay Award, an Asian Nobel prize. He doesn't interfere with nature, he just let it work. He does nothing. Some call him "Modern day Lao Tzu". ☞"Mu 無", which is the title of Masanobu Fukuoka's book on the right, means "nothing" in Japanese like "mu 無" of "mu-i 無為 (=do nothing)".
