Over the last week or so, the name Wei Wu Wei has shown up “everywhere” for me. He has not been on my radar until now, so it is definetely noticeable and I take it as a nudge to explore his writings some.
He certainly have a way with pithy statements:
Why are you unhappy? Because 99.9 percent Of everything you do Is for yourself – And there isn’t one.
We do not possess an “ego.” We are possessed by the idea of one.
Experiencing life from “ego” is akin to sitting center stage at Carnegie Hall, eyes closed, listening to the performance through the headset of a pocket radio.
True humility is the absence of anyone to be proud.
