Get Out Of Your Own Way

Do not lift a stone to only drop it on your toes. It is most unfortunate that we ourselves often are the cause of our greatest sorrow, disappointments, and troubles. It would behoove us to stay out of our own way. We would be wise to let things happen in accordance with wu-wei. We must know what needs doing and do it and learn what needs to be left alone and leave it alone. There is not a reason that we have to get involved in everything. We will find that many things resolve themselves without our interference. Sometimes our interference only exacerbates the problem. If we have a muddy stream in front of us, we can let it alone and let is settle on its own. No amount of thrashing about is going to make it clear any faster no matter how good our intentions.
