«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. When you get it, it excites you. (Ch.13 / Little luck)

2. It's just a result. Don't force any. (Ch.30 / Tao)

3. At the dark depth of this Dark Depth, lies the gateway to the various surprises of Tao.
(Ch.1 / Little luck)


«From Yama Uba»

If you sing it, you will set me free from the obsession to this imaginary world.


«Interpretation»

Little luck - Tao - Little luck.

Do you love your life? Do you love your life because it gives you what you want? Do you get frustrated when it does not give them to you? It is just a result. Don't try to act on it directly. You know the gateway to Tao lies at the dark depth of this Dark Depth. But you want to know how to open the gate. You want to know how to set yourself free from the obsession to your holographic life. But how? Yama Uba the hag answers your question: "Sing the song of Tao." It means: "Live every moment of your life, consciously emitting Love/Tao/Buddha."

Hag
Right!
I’ve come all the way through many, many mountains only to hear you sing about me divinely, with my own ears.

«Interpretation»

Middle luck - Bad luck - Good luck.

Do you wonder why your life is like climbing like a mountain? Do you wonder why you have to be always going through hardships and troubles? Do you wonder why life is not fair? Some are rich. Some are poor. Some refuse to be poor. Some don't want to be rich. Do you wonder why you cannot control your life? You find Zen Master Dogen's answer at Inmo chapter in his Shobogenzo: Because neither life nor self is yours. Zen Master Ikkyu have Yama Uba the hag say his answer: You travel all the way through your life to hear Tao's divine song.

«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. This act is making the mean their root, is it not? (Ch.39 / Bad luck)

2. How do I know that all the roots of material beings are like that?
By the name of Tao. (Ch.21 / Good luck)

3. Make them settle in their dwellings. (Ch.80 / Good lick)


«From Yama Uba»

Diva
It is very bizarre.
Are you saying that you are a real witch in the mountains?

«Interpretation»

Bad luck - Good luck - Good luck.

Do you wonder what Tao is? Do you wonder why Tao exists? But, don't you think it is bizarre? While you want to know what Tao is, when it appears, you don't like it. Tao is the circulation of nothingness. When you think about it in English, your thought process has to stop right here: Nothing cannot circulate because nothing exists. Have you ever thought about the probability that while you are thinking in English, you can never accept the nonexistence of Self? This might be the reason why you are not happy about your life.

«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. The more intelligent the people are, the more evil acts take place. (Ch.57 / Little luck)

2. Neighboring countries can see each other. (Ch.80 / Emptiness)

3. Seeing the small is called enlightenment. (Ch.52 / Good luck)


«From Yama Uba»

And, you know, then I can go back to the real world of love where I belong.
That’s why I have been so desperate to see you.


«Interpretation»

Little luck - Emptiness - Good luck.

Do you wonder what you are doing in this world, where the grass seems to be always greener in your neighbor's backyard? Do you wonder why you have to live in this world, where the intelligent people seem to take advantage of the less intelligent? Do you wonder why it is too difficult to accept that the very living itself is Satori the enlightenment?
Then, listen to this:

"I am always doing this desperately."

吾れ常に是に於いて切なり / 吾常於此切

 (Zen Master Tozan Ryokai 807-869 洞山良价)
[Tung-shan Liang-chieh / Dongshan Liangjie]


By living desperately, you can go back to the real world of Love.

«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. Living after his life is a long life. (Ch.33 / Emptiness)

2. What people don't like are surely "orphan", "less virtue", and "no good". And kings and lords use them to call themselves. (Ch.42 / Middle luck)

3. This act is making the mean their root, is it not? (Ch.39 / Bad luck)


«From Yama Uba»

If you dedicate that beautiful song to Buddha, how wonderful, it will purify me and I can forget about the obsession to the material world.


«Interpretation»

Emptiness - Middle luck - Bad luck.

Do you wonder why some people are so obsessed with the material things? Do you wonder why some people are so obsessed with the eternal youth? Do you wonder why some people are so obsessed with the surgical beauty or the non-surgical beauty? Do you wonder if Lao Tzu might call them "orphan", "less virtue", "no good" or "mean"? Or rather, do you wonder how you can forget any obsession? Then, listen to Yama Uba's answer: "Sing your beautiful holographic song to Buddha." You know what this song is, I suppose.
