Tao Te Ching Chapter 49-7
Not faithful
I think someone not

faithful is faithful,

too. (Ch.49)


♦  ♦  ♦


If you have no faith in anything, it is all right, too.


Whether you believe something or not, Tao works anyway.


Unless you suffer from the existence of your own self;


that is to say, frustration, jealousy, anger, or any pain you can name,


it might be better not to be conscious of faith.


But, if Tao doesn't work for you, and if Zen (=Jiriki / Self-power) doesn't work with you, either, don't worry.


You still have Tariki / Other-power.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 49-11
Close ears and eyes
People all open their

ears and eyes, but

the sage closes all of

them. (Ch. 49)


♦  ♦  ♦


The sage never

watches the news on

TV because he knows

so-called objective

information is truly

misleading.


Now it is about time we followed the attitude of Nikko's three

monkeys.


See nothing.


Say nothing.


Hear nothing.


Not just something evil.


Nothing at all because we don't judge.


Or, let's go a tiny step farther.


All what we see is a hologram and catalyst to stimulate us.


We watch and listen to all the financial disasters and environmental

catastrophes, while knowing that they are a prayer wheel or Horin

法輪, the wheel of Tao's manifestation.


And we will thank all of them for taking place, while receiving their

Love and sending your Love to them.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 49-10
Inmo & No mind
When he makes the

world under the sky,

he has no mind.

(Ch. 49)


♦  ♦  ♦


When you "make the

world under the sky",

in other words, when

you project your

hologram, true You

have "no mind".


Tao has neither mind nor intention to dictate the hologram.


Tao is not a judge.


That's why a hologram is called Inmo Butsu 恁麼物, a "what on

earth" thing in Zen Buddhism. (☞See Capable = Incapable 45-6)


We don't have to know where Inmo Butsu or a hologram comes

from.


We don't need to know why Inmo Butsu or the world is like this.


No one is responsible for Inmo Butsu.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 49-9
Have no heart
When the sage stays

in the world under

the sky, he has no

heart. (Ch.49)


♦  ♦  ♦


"The sage" means you

because you are the

one who projects your

hologram, which is the

world.


"The world under the sky" signifies your hologram.


Therefore, Today's Tao sentence is decrypted:


"When you stay in your hologram, you have no heart".


"No heart" suggests:


"Your own feelings, thoughts, senses, and even body and mind do

not exist outside the hologram".


If you think they are illusions, it will be easier for you to understand

how Tao's cycle and holograms work.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 49-8
Faith
I attain faith. (Ch.49)


♦  ♦  ♦


A: "Master Bonbon,

how can I attain my

faith?"


B: "The more money

you donate to our

organization, the

closer you get to your

faith."


You may laugh at Master Bonbon, but are you sure the priest next to

you is better than him?


Let's make it clear that salvation or Satori is free of charge.


You don't have to pay for your faith.


Let me put it another way.


Whether you have faith or not, your objective is to maintain the

circulation of the fundamental energy Tao. Nothing else.


The moment you remember this, you attain faith.

Heart, mind, and essence; all of them can be translated as Kokoro / Shin. In the process of the translation from Japanese to English, they are all mixed up, with a reason. Because the first two; heart and mind; are manifestations of Tao, which is Hannya (=Wisdom, =essence). "Learning Hannya is False Emptiness (=Koku, =hologram). False Emptiness is learning Hannya. 学般若これ虚空なり。虚空は学般若なり。" (Makahannyaharamitsu 摩訶般若波羅蜜, «Shobogenzo») Hannya = Emptiness. The world, heart and mind included, (=False Emptiness, =hologram) exists to give us chances to learn Hannya (=Tao).
