According to Taoist sage Lao Tzu, each person should find a balance between yin/yang. When faced with a problem, instead of responding with a knee-jerk aggressive action (yang), remain calm and find power and peace in the stillness. Then you will know the right course to the solution. Your thoughts often propel your body into action as a response to a problematic situation. Use your thoughts and the working of the Law of Attraction to draw to yourself solutions and opportunities by remaining in a quiet mindful (yin) place. That is the way of the Tao. You are neither advancing nor retreating. You are not buffeted about by emotions. Instead, you are anchored at the center of inner strength and power.
Day One–Hundred Thirty (130): Thursday, July 8th, 2010
There is a concept in Taoism called “not doing” or wu-wei. In a discussion of generosity of spirit, wu-wei has a place because of its emphasis on living life from the spirit, expressing harmony and love in all you do. Andrew Carnegie demanded his employees work together in a spirit of harmony because he believed it was a critical important factor in achieving success. The power behind wu-wei’s “action without action” is synchronicity. When you set forth an intent or desire in your mind and are harmoniously aligned with the energy of Tao, your power, invisible and strong, works with the laws of the universe.
