Let It Be

I have heard of leaving the world open to its own way and not interfering, but I have never heard of trying to control the world. We let the world be, fearful of spoiling its innate nature; we leave it alone, fearful of those who adversely affect the world’s Virtue. If the nature of everything under Heaven is not distorted, if the world’s Virtue is not despoiled, then what need is there to govern the world?

Chuang Tzu
