- The sutra
- (Chapter 2: Sutra 4)
- All things take their rise but he does not turn away from them; he gives them life, but does not take possession of them; he goes through these processes, but does not take possession of them; he acts, but does not appropriate, it is because he lays claim to no credit that the credit cannot be taken away from him.
- Question 1
- What is the place for method in Lao Tzu's philosophy of life? How can a man reach his goal whose aim is not doing but just floating? And is effort not necessary to reach the goal? Lao Tzu's method of no-doing, to be inactive, also establishes a goal. And can we call it wisdom to let ourselves loose on unknown and unfelt ways? Is this the characteristic of a wise man or an unwise man?
