A good traveler leaves neither wheel tracks nor footsteps.

A good speech has no flaws.

Good reckoning doesn't need counting sticks.

Good shutting doesn't need either bars nor bolts, but no one can open it.

Good tying doesn't need either strings nor cords, but no one can untie it.

Therefore, the sage always helps people very well. So, he abandons no people.

He helps things very well. So, he abandons no things.

This is called entering enlightenment, which means knowing the constancy of Tao.

So, a good man is the teacher of a non-good one.

A non-good man is the resources of a good one.

If you don't value your teacher, if you don't love your resources, no matter how wise you are, you will be lost completely.

This is called the profound truth.



<POINT> Love the world and accept all. That's why we are here.

When you do something according to Tao, you don't leave any traces.

When you say something according to Tao, your speech is perfect.

Don't calculate with limited human intelligence.

Don't try to protect something. It is the best way to lose it. If it is supposed to stay with you, it will be there. If not, let it go.

The best way to keep something with you is to let it go. Without strings or cords, everything is tied with Dark Depth. To use it, let everything go. It is called Dark Depth Female.

Therefore, you should accept and love others. They are characters in your hologram. You are the one who creates them. So, you cannot throw them away.

You should accept and love all what happens around you. By doing so (=turning the prayer wheel), you receive the fundamental energy through your hologram.

This is absolute acceptance called Satori in Zen Buddhism. Satori is not a hallucination or something like that. It is not just understanding the total acceptance, either. It is to actively receive the fundamental energy by accepting your hologram (=the world) and emitting it by loving the world (=your hologram). Thus, you can participate in the constant circulation of Tao the energy.

Do not judge. There is no good man.

Do not segregate. There is no bad man.

Value your hologram (=the world). Love the world (=your hologram). Don't be wise. Otherwise, you will be profoundly lost in the abyss of intellectualization.

This is the truth.

Who was a Geisha? Etymologically speaking, "gei 芸" means art; "sha 者", a person. She was an artist. An artist of what? She was an artist of love-making. Like any true artist, she was not just a business person. Of course, business was important, but it was not all. Besides, her art of love-making was not just a libidinous unification of the two bodies. It included music, dance, and sophisticated conversations about any subject. She even discussed love. She was not supposed to show her really self as a lawyer or a actor is not supposed to. Nevertheless, if she could not help it, she exposed her own fragile self. That was the very moment of sheer pleasure only available to the limited number of the privileged gentlemen. When Komako the Onsen - hot spa Geisha in Yasunari Kawabata's «Snow Country / Yukiguni» defenselessly showed her pure love to her client, she was as beautiful as white snow. On the other hand, the real professional Geishas in Kafu Nagai's «Rivalry / Udekurabe» took pride in their psychological love technique.  川端康成「雪国」 永井荷風「腕くらべ」

-Chapter 48 Reduce and reduce. When you study, you accumulate your knowledge everyday. When you do Tao, you reduce everything everyday. Don't study. No intellectualization.

-Chapter 2 Do not judge.

-Chapter 2b Satori. If you accept all, you will reach there.

-Chapter 16 Go back. Satori is not an altered state.

-Chapter 52 Enlightenment. Sometimes, Satori is translated so in English.

Love has many forms. The love story of the love stories in Japan is no doubt «The Tale

of Genji / Genji Monogarari» by Lady Murasaki Shikibu. The irony here is that, to the

modern Japanese girls who have started seriously believing that a prince is supposed

to be blond, this Japanese aristocrat Genji's love affairs hardly seem to be "love"

stories. The quest of perfect beauty and the creation of an ideal woman do not attract

girls as much as a colorful princess and her beau in an American theme park in Tokyo

do. It is interesting to read Ihara, Saikaku's «The Great Mirror of Male Love / Danshoku

Ookagami» while ignoring the context of homosexuality. You can find plenty of

emotions universally shared by all the human beings beside the homage to Lady

Murasaki's masterpiece. You never know, modern boys rather than girls will be the

torch bearers of Japan's traditional "princess-hood" in kimono. In the old days, even

before the arrival of samurai, Japanese male aristocrats were not stereotypically

masculine. Now no longer samurai men live. It is about time we went back to the matriarchal basic.
