Non Action IS Action

Last week my Inspirational & Insightful newsletter was sent out with the subject in the subject line reading “Enter subject here”.  As soon as I saw that I just laughed at my self. I thought what should I do to fix it? Should I do anything?

One of Taoism’s most important concepts is Wu Wei.  This is often translated as “non-doing” or “non-action.” Wu Wei refers to the cultivation of a state of being in which our actions are quite effortlessly in alignment with the ebb and flow of the cycles of the natural world. Simply said, Wu Wei is “going with the flow”, with great ease and awareness.  Without even trying we are able to respond perfectly to whatever situations arise.

So, should I send another email with a correction? Should I email an apology? As I looked at all my options I considered Wu Wei and the value of non-action. By “going with the flow” I am allowing this error to exist and accepting everything is as it should be. Then I thought about the upcoming launch of my new website and how so often, there are minor corrections and adjustments as a new site goes live. If I could laugh at the subject line error in my newsletter I know I will be able to laugh at a few glitches on my new site. Wu Wei is excellent practice for the art of thriving as life unfolds around me! So go with the flow!
