The great enlightened Master Chuang Tzu lived from approximately 369 to 286 BC. He is considered one of the greatest literary and philosophical figures of China. His philosophy is contained in the book bearing his name, Chuang Tzu. His teachings were true to "wu-wei," the Taoist doctrine meaning to refrain from action contrary to nature. Today, we present to you an excerpt from Chapter 13, “Heavenly Tao” from the teachings of Chuang Tzu. "The Way (Tao) of Nature is to continue moving without stopping to accumulate anything, thus all living things flourish…. One who understands clearly the Way of Nature, the Way of Sages, and is perfectly familiar with the virtue of emperors and kings, acts and lets things act spontaneously from themselves. Even when in the dark, they would invariably remain calm."
