Far away
It's going away, so it's said to be far away. (Ch.25)


♦  ♦  ♦


Tao is big.


It spreads itself all

over.


"Far away" means the limit of the world.


Of course, Tao goes beyond the limit because it is bigger than the world, which is your hologram.


Having said that, we have to remember that there is no space in Tao.



[Note]

Since there is no time and space in Tao, everything happens simultaneously without distance. (☞ Read also Chapter 20 East mother)

Shiki Masaoka, one of the greatest poets of modern Haiku and Tanka, is the one who translated the game of baseball into Japanese. Without Shiki, no Ichiro.

King is Big
One of them is the king. (Ch.25)


♦  ♦  ♦


"The king" means you because you create

your hologram, the

world.


Lao Tzu emphasizes it here.


The one who project the holographic world is also Tao.


Is it difficult to tell true You from your feelings and body?


If you accept that you are Tao, all your troubles will disappear.


Or rather, you will realize that there is no problem from the

beginning.



[Note]

We often forget that we are Tao itself. (☞ See also Chapter 20 Eat mother)
