A true samurai doesn't fight.

A true warrior doesn't get angry.

A true winner doesn't compete.

One who uses people well puts himself lower than them.

This is called attainment by no competition.

This is called the use of other people's power.

This is called matching the limit of space and time.



You shouldn't fight because the one you fight against is part of your hologram.

You shouldn't get angry because the one you get angry with is part of your hologram.

You shouldn't compete because the one you compete with is part of your hologram. It is useless.

"People" means your hologram. If you want to use your hologram "well", you have to "put yourself lower", which is to say, accept all. This is called Dark Depth Female.

If you don't compete, you can accept all the world (=your hologram) much more easily. When you accept all of it, you are one with Tao. It is Dark Depth Attainment, or the attainment of Tao.

Don't use your own power. Use other people's. Don't act directly. Do nothing.

Space and time only exist in your hologram. If you accept all of it, you can go beyond the limit of space and time. In other words, you can comprehend that space and time are constituted in your mind. A true miracle is not something magical, but your own hologram, or what we call "reality", Master Dogen says in Shobogenzo.「運水の大神通なること」(神通)

Japanese Zen Master Dogen was able to speak and understand Chinese remarkably. In his «Shobogenzo» he often uses the syntax of Chinese to make the meaning clear. How can you translate this into one Indo-European language? 道元禅師

-In Chapter 3 Do nothing, this principle is discussed. It is not the same as what you think of "doing truly nothing".

On the left, in Shusaku Endo's «The Samurai», a Christian samurai travels from Japan to Rome. He doesn't fight like a samurai. He suffers as a Christian. On the right, a man fight like a samurai with the famous banner of Takeda, Shingen: fu rin ka zan Wind, Forest, Fire, and Mountain. Be swift like a wind. Be silent like forest. Be fierce like fire. Be stable like a mountain. «The Samurai Banner of Furin Kazan» was written by Yasushi Inoue.  遠藤周作「侍」 武田信玄  風林火山
