In Taoist philosophy, the wise man is the one who ceases to ask and lives his life naturally, without trying to find explanations or reasons for his existance or for how things are. The wise man recognizes that by letting go, life naturally unfolds. When he does that, all things naturally fall into place and he achieves enlightnment through that natural experience. His mind does not cloud his perceptions anymore, and what he sees in the universe is what actually IS. So... why do we ask? Why do we think? Is it worth going through all this? Or the chinese are truly the wisest ones?
