Taoism Uncut

Naturalness

Naturalness (Chinese: 自然; pinyin: zìrán; Wade–Giles: tzu-jan; lit. "self-such") is regarded as a central value in Taoism.[55] It describes the "primordial state" of all things[56] as well as a basic character of the Tao[57], and is usually associated with spontaneity and creativity.[58][57] To attain naturalness, one has to identify with the Tao[57]; this involves freeing oneself from selfishness and desire, and appreciating simplicity.[55]

An often cited metaphor for naturalness is pu (simplified Chinese: 朴; traditional Chinese: 樸; pinyin: pǔ, pú; Wade–Giles: p'u; lit. "uncut wood"), the "uncarved block", which represents the "original nature... prior to the imprint of culture" of an individual.[59] It is usually referred to as a state one returns to.[60]

I also use the natural state to explain things and sometime you need to let the nature take its course and action because we cant stop nature from taking its course
