    [19:47] Lawrence Vyceratops: The topic lately seems to be a concept? called "wu wei"? are you familiar with it?
    [19:47] Paradise Tennant: yes
    [19:48] Paradise Tennant: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_wei
    [19:48] Lawrence Vyceratops: it was mentioned that it is a recurring theme. i am not familiar with this term, but from what i have gathered about it, i would somewhat agree that the concept is often mentioned in one way or another
    [19:51] Paradise Tennant: Wu wei (Chinese: 無爲; a variant and derivatives: traditional Chinese: 無為; simplified Chinese: 无为; pinyin: wú wéi; Japanese: 無為; Korean: 무위; Vietnamese: Vô vi) is an important concept of Taoism (Daoism), that involves knowing when to act and when not to act
    [19:51] Paradise Tennant: Wu may be translated as not have or without; Wei may be translated as do, act, serve as, govern or effort. The literal meaning of Wu Wei is "without action", "without effort", or "without control", and is often included in the paradox wei wu wei: "action without action" or "effortless doing".
    [19:52] Lawrence Vyceratops: yes, i've read that

    [19:53] Paradise Tennant: Really about recognizing the universe is in harmony and making sure your non action or action is fluid with that harmony
    [19:54] Lawrence Vyceratops: that has been said, but what does that mean?
    [19:54] Paradise Tennant: I think slowing down till you feel the flow of your day to day life your day to day thoughts ..actions
    [19:54] Lawrence Vyceratops: is wu wei something you agree with, don't, are impartial to?
    [19:55] Paradise Tennant: I believe it is an important feature of reality to recognize .. :) that we live already in a harmony :)

    [19:56] Lawrence Vyceratops: what is meant by harmony?
    [19:56] Lawrence Vyceratops: that thngs are meant to be as they are?
    [19:57] Paradise Tennant: no change is the constant but there is a harmony to the motion of it
    [19:57] Paradise Tennant: always think when you slow down a bit you can feel a kind of flow to your life and the world around you
    [19:58] Lawrence Vyceratops: i'm not sure i know what you mean
    [19:59] Paradise Tennant: well have you ever had a day that seem to just be unusual in that there was an obvious synchronicity to it
    [19:59] Lawrence Vyceratops: i'm not sure what you mean.
    [20:00] Paradise Tennant: a day when everything went right :)
    [20:00] Paradise Tennant: but really the same applies to a day where everything goes wrong
    [20:02] Lawrence Vyceratops: hmmm.. i don't know
    [20:02] Paradise Tennant: smiles well worth thinking about
    [20:02] Paradise Tennant: I am going to have to say good night .. late here and I have a little dog to walk
    [20:02] Lawrence Vyceratops: ok
    [20:03] Paradise Tennant: namaste Lawence :) I hope baby sleeps well :))
