Interesting Chinese Proverb

I was reading slashdot, and the fortune on my slashdot home page was the following:

The universe is ruled by letting things take their course. It cannot be
ruled by interfering.
-- Chinese proverb

An interesting proverb from country that seems to prefer order to liberty. Now I'm painting with very broad strokes here, well more like a 12" roller than a brush. However, though provoking none the less.

It reminds me of some concepts presented in the 道德經 (Tao Te Ching). Still, you do need to be careful when something is labeled a "Chinese Proverb". Not all of them are, and of those that are, some are taken so drastically out of context as to have lost it's meaning.

I have no idea where this phrase falls. Still. Just saying.
