How to Practice Wu-Wei
Summary: The Taoist idea of Wu Wei means “actionless action” or “action without effort.”
One of the essential elements of the Taoist philosophy is that of Wu Wei, or “actionless action.” By acting without intention or aggression one can find a more peaceful and satisfying path.
