Wei Wu Wei Speaks

Why are you unhappy?

Because 99.9 per cent

Of everything you think,

And of everything you do,

Is for yourself —

And there isn’t one.

— Ask The Awakened, Wei Wu Wei*

*Between the years 1958 and 1974 eight books and articles in various periodicals appeared under the pseudonym “Wei Wu Wei” (Wu wei, a Taoist term which translates as “action that is non-action”). The identity of the author was not revealed at the time of publication for reasons outlined in the Preface to the first book, Fingers Pointing Towards the Moon(Routledge and Kegan Paul, 1958). Eventually it was revealed that the author had been Terence Gray. – Wikipedia, Wei Wu Wei. July 5/2013.
