You need not go beyond your household door,
to be aware of everything,
Nor peep into a lattice window
to see Heaven’s Way.
He that goes out far distances to fill (his mind),
He knows little (of value) to fill (his mind) with.
Therefore, saints will not travel to get their knowledge.
They will not see something to understand it.
They will not labor too hard on a subject in order to be a success.
By not forcing their will by leaving home or laboring too hard, they are paying attention to and using their wu-wei.
