Chuang Tzu - How vast...

Heaven does nothing: its non-doing is its serenity.
Earth does nothing: its non-doing is its rest.

From the union of these two non-doings
All actions proceed.
All things are made.

How vast, how invisible
This coming-to-be!

All things come from nowhere!
How vast, how invisible

No way to explain it!
All beings in their perfection
Are born of non-doing.

Hence it is said:
Heaven and earth do nothing
Yet there is nothing they do not do.

Where is the man who can attain
To this non-doing?

~ Chuang Tzu
