The Action of No-Action

2208 019

My quote today is from the book “The Zen of Creativity – Cultivating Your Artistic Life” by John Daido Loori.

“In the action of no-action (wu-wei), a cardinal aspect of the true creative process is set forth.  In wu-wei, the mind is silenced and the work is allowed to express itself.”

To me, this defines the meaning of becoming purposeless in your work.

Your best work happens when it turns up all on its own.
