In Qiguang Zhao's book "Do Nothing & Do Everything: An Illustrated New Taoism" the authour succinctly explains Wu Wei as not idleness but knowing when to act and when not to act. To achieve success we must not to overdo things and do them at the appropriate time. In this way we can tap into the invisible power of the Tao by aligning ourselves with it. In practicing pair work or push hands I interpret this principle or ideal as being mindful to listen and follow your partners' force like the Tao. It's their "push" that determines how fast, how much, when & which direction you receive their force.
These are my thoughts about various aspects of Tai Chi. They may or may not be original and I try to give credit where credit is due.
