As an atheist, I have a hard time with anything that professes anything along the lines of 'spirituality'. It's hard to relate to what seems, at the surface, to contradict what you might believe. Wei Wu Wei, however, expresses his own ideas about the nature of man and our view of existence in a manner that borders on the irrefutable. Our efforts to understand something that could be called 'true nature' are futile, and ultimately we are only left with what we find in our own lives; a separate but equal peace with the rest of the world. Highly recommended.
