Nameless
Tao is constantly nameless. (Ch.32)


♦  ♦  ♦


"What is Tao?"


Many people ask this question.


Excuse me, but Tao

refuses to have a

name.


We just call it Tao for the sake of our discussion.


What do you do you when someone asks you questions like:


"What is a Calvin Klein? What is a Starbucks?"


The easiest way to answer the questions is to point out the underpants or the double mokachino.


I will do the same.


Tao is this.


Tao is constant and omnipresent.


It is bigger than a name.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 32-2
Small uncarved block
Though the uncarved block is small, no

one under the sky

can make it his

minister very well.

(Ch.32)


♦  ♦  ♦


It is a good suggestion.


Many people try to control Tao.


Lao Tzu makes it clear that it is impossible.


"The uncarved block", which is Tao, is not just small, but doesn't have any volume at all.


"The world under the sky" means your hologram.


You cannot control Tao from the side of the hologram by any means, neither by any exercise nor prayer, not to mention any scientific measure.


I hope that you don't practice Taoism or Zen Buddhism, thinking that you will be able to control Tao.

Lords and Kings
If the lords and kings defend it very well, all the material things will obey them.

(Ch.32)


♦  ♦  ♦


"Lords and kings" mean the one who creates his hologram.


If he knows how to defend Tao very well, he can control all the material beings, Lao Tzu says.


He has to know how to use Dark Depth Female.


By "doing nothing".


He has to know how to go back to Tao.


By Reverse Thinking.


Now you remember that true You are creating your hologram.


But, wait a minute.


Now you know it is useless to control any.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 32-4
True sutra / Fertile raindrops
Heaven and earth harmonize with each other, so fertile raindrops fall. (Ch.32)


♦  ♦  ♦


Heaven and earth.


You and non-you.


The outside world constitutes your feelings and thoughts, and your feelings and thoughts constitute the outside world.


"The true sutra is grasses, woods, you and non-you", says Zen Master Dogen. (Jishozanmai 自証三昧 , «Shobogenzo»)


They are part of your hologram, so everything is always in harmony with Tao however disharmonious it seems.


Please remember fertile rains are constantly falling on us.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 32-5
Balance
You don't need to order people. They balance themselves naturally. (Ch.32)


♦  ♦  ♦


This chapter is good, isn't it?


It must be Lao Tzu's true work.


Everything in your hologram; people, things, or whatever; is like

water.


They look for balance whether you give them orders or not.


Well, it is not precise.


Everything in front of us is totally balanced already.


Whether you impose your judgement on it or not, it is perfect

naturally.


Don't judge because you know very well that it is a waste of energy.
