Wu wei ( Chinese : 無爲 ; a variant and derivatives: traditional Chinese : 無為 ; simplified Chinese : 无为 ; pinyin : wú wéi ; Japanese : 無為 ; Korean : 무위 ; Vietnamese : Vô vi ; English , lit. non-doing ) is an important concept in Taoism that literally means non-action or non-doing . In the Tao te Ching , Laozi explains that beings (or phenomena) that are wholly in harmony with the Tao behave in a completely natural, uncontrived way. As the planets revolve around the sun, they "do" this revolving, but without "doing" it. As trees grow, they simply grow without trying to grow. Thus knowing how and when to act is not knowledge in the sense that one would think, "now I should do this," but rather just doing it, doing the natural thing.
Righteousness (also called rectitude ) is an important theological concept in Christianity , Judaism , Islam , Hinduism (dharma), and Zoroastrianism . It is an attribute that implies that a person's actions are justified, and can have the connotation that the person has been "judged" or "reckoned" as leading a life that is pleasing to the god/s portrayed in these belief systems. William Tyndale remodelled the word after an earlier word rihtwis , which would have yielded modern English * rightwise or * rightways . He used it to translate the Hebrew root צדקים ( TzDYQ ), tzedek , which appears more than five hundred times in the Hebrew Bible , and the Greek word δικαιος ( dikaios ), which appears more than two hundred times in the New Testament . [ edit ] Hebrew Bible Righteousness is one of the chief attributes of God as portrayed in the Hebrew Bible.

Two mitochondria from mammalian lung tissue displaying their matrix and membranes as shown by electron microscopy In cell biology , a mitochondrion (plural mitochondria ) is a membrane -enclosed organelle found in most eukaryotic cells . [ 1 ] These organelles range from 0.5 to 1.0 micrometer ( μm ) in diameter. Mitochondria are sometimes described as "cellular power plants" because they generate most of the cell's supply of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), used as a source of chemical energy . [ 2 ] In addition to supplying cellular energy, mitochondria are involved in other tasks such as signaling , cellular differentiation , cell death , as well as the control of the cell cycle and cell growth . [ 3 ] Mitochondria have been implicated in several human diseases, including mitochondrial disorders [ 4 ] and cardiac dysfunction, [ 5 ] and may play a role in the aging process . The word mitochondrion comes from the Greek μίτος mitos , thread, + χονδρίον chondrion , granule.
In traditional Chinese culture , qì (also chi or ch'i ) is an active principle forming part of any living thing. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] Qi is frequently translated as "life energy", "life force", or " energy flow". Qi is the central underlying principle in traditional Chinese medicine and martial arts . The literal translation of " qi " is "breath", "air", or "gas". Concepts similar to qi can be found in many cultures, for example, prana in Hindu religion (which includes the Vedantic philosophy), mana in Hawaiian culture, lüng in Tibetan Buddhism, and Vital energy in Western philosophy. Some elements of qi can be understood in the term energy when used by writers and practitioners of various esoteric forms of spirituality and alternative medicine .

Will , in philosophy , refers to a property of the mind, and an attribute of acts intentionally performed. Actions made according to a person's will are called “willing” or “voluntary” and sometimes pejoratively “willful” or “at will”. In general, "will" does not refer to one particular or most preferred desire but rather to the general capacity to have such desires and act decisively based on them, according to whatever criteria the willing agent applies. The will is in turn important within philosophy because a person's will is one of the most distinct parts of their mind , along with reason and understanding . It is one of the things which makes a person who they are, and it is especially important in ethics , because it is the part which determines whether people act, at least when they act deliberately.
