Fly straight, guīmì. Stay true, move strong, what more can you do? I’ve been calling to you. Through the mists that sweep through the old town gate and the rush of the mountain waterfalls, I have whispered your name. Naturalness. Is that what they call it? Come here to me, but come not for me, come not for the mountain. Come to be. Be in the way that the leaves turn towards the sun. Be in the way that the birds sweep across the sky in the evening. How is it to have action without action? It doesn’t mean to step slowly or to whittle away to nothing in honor of the almighty thought. One cannot chase after wu wei. It doesn’t even happen to you. It is you. You, me, here, the mountain. Turn your ear, turn your mind, turn your wing. Life has been waiting for you since you were born. [Kathleen McCampbell]
