Love

 
Tao Te Ching Chapter 67-6
Send Love
The first one is to send Love. (Ch.67)


♦  ♦  ♦


The first treasure is "to send Love".


This Love signifies not only the feeling between two people but the energy that sustains all the beings.


You can call it Tao, Buddha, Zen, the Higher Being, or whatever you think appropriate.


The expression is the translation of the Kanji / Chinese character 慈 [ji].


Receiving and sending this energy Love is the basis of the mechanism, which has plenty of names, including 心 [shin], 転法輪 [tenborin], and Yin Yang circle.

There is no doubt about it. The best Japanese actor ever is Toshiro Mifune. Of course, we have some Japanese actors who contributed to the establishment of "Japanese" theaters such as Zeami, the banished founder of Noh, and Izumo no Okuni, the shamanic actress of Kabuki. Nevertheless, who on earth knows these names outside Japan? Along with Akira Kurosawa, Toshiro Mifune will remain in the hearts of many people who adore and admire Samurai and their way of living. The life is a floating world, not the one and only objective world. Please watch the Japanese duo's masterpiece «Rashomon» for explanation.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 67-7
Don’t waste holograms
The second one is not to waste any. (Ch.67)


♦  ♦  ♦


The second treasure is "not to waste" any in your hologram.


Don't waste any because everything is the manifestation of Tao.


It is a catalyst asking you to emit more Tao (=Love).


Accept all with gratitude whether they are good or bad, and you will not waste any.


For example, chew everything well.


You are eating someone else's life whether it is an animal or a plant.


Assimilate its energy into your body with respect.


Not only food but everything is Master Dogen's "painted rice-cake / Gabyo 画餅", which stimulates you to fill Tao's mechanism with the energy of Love (=Tao).

Not the first
The third one is to try not to be the first under the sky. (Ch.67)


♦  ♦  ♦


The third treasure is "to try not to be the first".


You don't have to be the best.


Don't try to be the number one.


You don't have to control the world "under the sky".


Because you are "the only respectable being" as the baby Buddha said. (☞See Ordinary? 67-3)


Because you are the one who projects the world, which is your hologram.


Try not to be the first.


Lower yourself. (☞See Verbally 66-2)

Tao Te Ching Chapter 67-9
Be brave
I send Love, so I can be brave. (Ch.67)


♦  ♦  ♦


Be brave.


But how can you be brave?


Lao Tzu asks you to send Love.


When you are afraid of something, you are doubting life.


The doubt is generated from the lack of Love, or the fundamental energy Tao.


In other words, doubt and fear are generated in order to increase the amount of Love.


So, what you have to do is quite simple.


Just send more Love.


Accept all.


This is "doing nothing".


A byproduct of "doing nothing" is making you remember that everything is a hologram and catalyst asking you to send Love.


Now you are brave.


How can you be afraid of a catalyst!

Tao Te Ching Chapter 67-10
Be vast
I don't waste any, so I can be vast. (Ch.67)


♦  ♦  ♦


You are vast because true You are Tao.


No matter what you do, you are not wasting Tao's energy.


You (=Tao) receive the energy through the world, which is your

hologram.


In Zen Buddhism, they say:


"尽十方界是自己光明


[jin jippo kai kore jiko no komyo / jin juppo kai kore jiko no komyo]


Ten nooks and crannies of the whole world are your light".


(Komyo 光明, «Shobogenzo»)


You are as vast as the world.


You may not like this world.


You might think that you refuse to accept it.


But it is not possible because you are the world.
