"The Tao has no purpose,
And for this reason fulfills
all its purpose admirably.

Has the stream flowing down the hill a purpose? Has the tree that grows big and strong a purpose? Then should a human being have a purpose in everything he does? Most of the time there is no purpose: we think there is a purpose when a man works for a living. He can have any sort of work to earn a living. He can even not work and still live: he can beg, he can scrounge or even steal. One should not have an attitude that one should always have a purpose. Sometimes a purposeless action may serve a grand purpose."
