In the last analysis, this is how we should understand the "nonaction" of the sage. Of, to be more precise, the fact that he can "act without taking action." What might have seemed a paradox now dissolves: the sage "acts," we are told, but does so "before reality is yet actualized”. Action certainly does take place but upstream; and it happens so far upstream that it is not noticed. For instead of trying to manage reality by grappling with it head-on and hoping to succeed by dint of great exploits, a sage knows (and he who knows is a sage) that it is always necessary to pass through a process in order to reach an effect.
