Edward Slingerland
“If we have to translate it, wu-wei is probably best rendered as something like "effortless action" or spontaneous action.”
Edward Slingerland, Trying Not to Try: The Art and Science of Spontaneity

“Americans “are stuck in a society that ensures none of the fundamental opportunities that people need to achieve even basic middle-class comforts. This condemns Americans to an anxiety-ridden battle where a person had better be special, because the alternative is not succeeding at all.”
Anu Partanen

John N. Gray
“In ancient Chinese rituals, straw dogs were used as offerings to the gods. During the ritual they were treated with the utmost reverence. When it was over and they were no longer needed they were trampled on and tossed aside: ‘Heaven and earth are ruthless, and treat the myriad creatures as straw dogs.’ If humans disturb the balance of the Earth they will be trampled on and tossed aside.”
John N. Gray, Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals

Edward Slingerland
“People who are in wu-wei has de, typically translated as "virtue," "power," or "charismatic power." De is radiance that others can detect, and it serves as an outward signal that one is in wu-wei.”
