Do nothing...

I love it when quotes from one tradition sound very much like those from another. A favorite of mine is this:
Do nothing, and everything is done -- Tao Te Ching
Now here's one from Lama Gendun Rinpoche:
Nothing to do, nothing to force, nothing to want--and everything happens by itself.
And now the Gita:
By nature are actions done in every way, and who sees the self as the nondoer, he truly sees.
One who sees action in inaction and inaction in action is intelligent amongst men. He acts in an integrated manner
