Love him

 
Tao Te Ching Chapter 63-5
Love him
Love one instead of resenting him.

(Ch.63)


♦  ♦  ♦


When someone hurts you, what do you do?


Before we answer the question, let's think who "someone" is.


This "someone" is an extended part of your own self, which is a hologram. (☞See You and non-you in Keywords on the right)


If you cannot help it, you are allowed to fight back.


But fight against who?


Against your own self?


Against your hologram that you project?


The hologram is a catalyst to stimulate you, right?


Therefore, the answer to the original question is that you accept and love him.


Resenting him is simply a resistance and a waste of Tao's energy.


Every time someone hurts you, you should say:


"Uh, uh, I know what you want. You want me to send more love, don't you?"

Tao Te Ching Chapter 63-6
Complicated?
Plan complicated things while they are easy. (Ch.63)


♦  ♦  ♦


You surely agree to this, don't you?


Then, let's go a step further.


Well.


It says:


"while they are easy".


When is it exactly?


It is before things are created.


That is to say, before your hologram is projected.


It is called "Bumo misho izen 父母未生以前" in Zen Buddhism.


(☞See Chapter 63a Work no work for other useful information concerning Bumo misho izen, Hara gei, and “work”, which means  interference in the context.)


Bumo misho izen literally means "before the father and mother are born", but is a synonym of Tao.


Please remember there is no time in Tao.


So, it means "right now".


Right now right here your life may seem complicated, but in fact it is easy.


It is your hologram you project.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 63-7
Minuscule
Do big things while they are minuscule.

(Ch.63)


♦  ♦  ♦


This is the same as the previous sentence: "Plan complicated things while they are easy". (☞See 63-6 Complicated?)


Please do not be fooled by the words "big / minuscule" and "complicated / easy".


It is about Bumo misho izen 父母未生以前.


You can accomplish any dream no matter how big it seems.


Don't doubt it.


If you doubt it, you will create resistance and your dream will not come true.


Reduce your resistance to materialize your dream.


How can you reduce it?


Use Reverse Thinking.


Instead of craving something, why don't you say:


"I don't have any dreams to materialize"?


Your hologram has no defects.


Don't try to add anything to the world, which is already perfect.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 63-8
Complicated in Easy
Complicated things in the world must be created in the easy. (Ch. 63)


♦  ♦  ♦


Let's replace the expression "in the

world" with "in your hologram" as we

always do when we

see it.


Seemingly complicated things in your hologram are the manifestation of the simplest thing called Tao.


They are holograms and catalysts created in Tao in order to stimulate the circulation of its energy.


Tao is the most fundamental of all.


So, it is the simplest and easiest.


Then, why do many people say Zen and Tao are complicated and difficult to understand?


Because they cannot abandon the concept of Self.


If it's your case, let me ask you a question?


Have you ever seen the quantum physical limit of your own self?


Self is a myth.


Not Tao nor Zen.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 63-9
Big in minuscule
Big things in the

world must be

created in the

minuscule. (Ch. 63)


♦  ♦  ♦


Tao is the biggest of

all.


This is correct in a way.


But, if it gives you an impression that Tao is big, I am sorry, it is

wrong.


Please remember Tao has no volume.


So, it is the most minuscule and minute being.


Big things in the world, which is your hologram, are, in fact, not at all big.


They are just tiny elements of your hologram that you project.


Some institutions such as states, societies, or multinational corporations may seem big.


But, they are just tiny parts of the backdrop of your hologram.
