The Book of the Right Way of Laozi – 48

48

The scholar seeks to learn more daily.
The follower of the process seeks less every day.
By consciously seeking less and less
One will come to complete non-action.
By the non-action of non-action
One controls everything under the sun without effort.
Trying to exercise direct control
Will only elicit the resistance of everything under the sun.

 

為學日益,為道日損。損之又損,以至於無為。無為而無不為。取天下常以無事,及其有事,不足以取天下。
