The Wisdom of Wu Wei

From the ancient Taoist tradition comes the idea of “Wu Wei” which is simply the art and virtue of “in-action” or “non-doing,” or said another way, “going with the natural flow” of life. This Eastern understanding of how to move though life is a difficult spiritual concept for busy 21st Century Americans, who’s lives tend to be perpetually wrapped in nearly constant motion, activity, and imagined control. Even your minister–who is supposed to be versed in such things–has difficulty reminding himself that “non-doing” and paying attention to the natural flow of life might be as spiritually important as keeping busy serving, creating and doing. Do be with us as we together reflect on the wisdom of “Wu Wei“.
