Tao - the yielding up of striving conscious

Do you have the patience to wait till your mind settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself?
~Tao Te Ching

"To be 'in tao' is to be in alignment with the natural workings of the universe ... through creative quietude , or wu wei. Wu wei is not idle inaction, it is a suppleness, a yielding up of striving conscious wills to the resources of a deeper self in tune with tao."
~ Gail Godwin, Heart
