The non-action of the wise person
Is not inaction.
It is not studied.
It is not shaken by anything.
The sage is quiet
Because she is not moved,
Not because she wills to be quiet.
Her quietness is the mirror
Of heaven and earth
The glass of everything.
Emptiness, stillness, tranquility,
Silence, non-action:
This is the level of
Heaven and earth.
This is the perfect Tao.

Chuang Tzu
