Lao Tzu discusses Wu wei often in the Tao Te Ching. One of our Members, Marla H. is looking for a job. We discuss "effortless effort" – a principle known as Wu wei in Taoist thought. What is "our part" in whatever we are doing? Whether we are looking for a job, our recovery, friends, relatives, or other affairs?
