“Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art.” —Leonardo da Vinci


Key Ideas about Non-Doing

  • The actor acting is not action.
  • The actor acting is mental noise, not action.
  • The actor claiming is not action.
  • The actor claiming is mental noise, not action.
  • The claim for action closes the door to action.
  • The actor is in the way of action.
  • Serve action by not acting.
  • Serve action by not claiming action.
  • Increase action by eliminating the actor.
  • Increase action by eliminating claims.
  • Grasping for action sacrifices action for grasping.
  • Claiming action sacrifices action for claiming.
  • Claiming and grasping are the life of the actor and the death of action.
  • The actions of hosting and amplifying are non-action, because there is neither actor nor claim.
  • Host action, not the actor.
  • Amplify action, not claims.

(“Action” and “doing” can be interchanged without changing the meaning. “Grasping” and “claiming” can be interchanged without changing the meaning.)


Clarification on Options

  • You can claim to host and to amplify. You can act as a host. You can even grasp your hosting process.

However, normally “acting”, “claiming”, and “grasping” are used to refer to ego and self-esteem games that interfere with right action or take place after right action has passed.
