Question description

  • Identify any aspects of wu wei that would be practical in the busy lives of city dwellers, especially those living in the West.
  • Explain whether or not you think that wu wei would be a reasonable way for a person to live his or her life. Explain why or why not it would be reasonable for you personally.
  • Provide your own example of the so-called “paradox of wu wei” in which you demonstrate how a person can consciously “try not to try.”

Let me begin the discussion this week with a common example - traffic. Many of us find ourselves in it every morning and evening and it is no fun. Do you think that it is possible to apply Wu Wei to dealing with traffic? What would it be like?
