Tao Te Ching Chapter 61-4 Female beats male
The female always beats the male because of its stillness. (Ch.61)
This is Lao Tzu's useful message, which you can apply to life without any complicated interpretation.
The word "male" suggests direct action.
Inaction beats action.
If you are still, you are better.
Passiveness defeats activeness.
Use Dark Depth Female rather than acting directly on your hologram (=the world).
Use Reverse Thinking, swapping the cause and the result.
If you are confused, don't move.
If you are forced to do something, do it without feeling ashamed.
When Chuang Tzu asks you not to move until you are forced to, he is not prohibiting you from moving.
On the contrary, if you sit still against any force, it shows that you don't understand his teachings at all.

Tao answers your question!
☞If you are interested in non-verbal communication, Japanese Haragei the belly art must be a fascinating subject to study. "Hara", which means one's belly in Japanese, is a key in many martial arts. Even in performing arts you cannot ignore this center of gravity in one's body. Besides, if you are a businessman negotiating with a Japanese, it is a must to overcome this art of communication without words. (☞See also Tao by Matsumoto / Haragei the belly art) Read this «Haragei» book with «With Respect to the Japanese: Going to work in Japan» if you are planning to settle in Japan. Don't underestimate Golden Silence.
