Stutterers don’t like to speak…

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope you’re all keeping well 🙂

Wu Wei, the Art of Non-acting — Wise & Shine

Wu Wei is a key concept of Taoism that can be translated as “do not act” or “do not intervene”. However, it is not a passive attitude.

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope that you’re all having a lovely day!
