I’ve felt on my skin these last times how difficult it is not to do something than doing it.
It’s really difficult remaining silent or saying casual stuff when you have so much else you’d like to say.
Inaction takes more effort than action would take. It’s not a matter of effort, it’s about how disastrous it could be if any action would take place.
And I’m not thinking about me when I avoid acting disastrous. I feel like I don’t have the right to do it and inaction, even though very challenging, seems to be the best choice.
The Tao abides in non-action,
but leaves nothing undone.
If rulers observed this,
Then several things would develop naturally.
If they still wished to act,
They would act to return
to the simplicity of formlessness.
Without form there is no desire.
Without desire there is calm.
Thus all things would be at peace.
I’m not taoist [just like to read about it though I don’t know I understand it completely] and in my case I have no internal balance about the matter I mentioned.
I just don’t want to unbalance things outside too.
