«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. You know all four corners clearly. Are you capable of not knowing anything? / Usted sabe las cuatro esquinas con claridad. ¿Es usted capaz de no saber nada? (Ch.10 / Tao)

2. Therefore, without mind, you can see the surprising Tao. / Por eso, sin la mente puede ver el Tao que sorprende. (Ch.1 / Good luck)

3. Though everything moves, he does not explain it. / Aunque todo se mueve, el sabio no explica nada. (Ch.2 / Tao)


«Interpretation»

Tao - Good luck - Tao. Do you wonder why a certain person hates you? There is no identifiable reason why he (or she) doesn't like you, but he (or she) keeps on telling you and doing the things that get on your nerves. Then, please remember that the world is a hologram that you project. You know everything in Tao's level, but you don't have to know anything in your conscious level. When you accept that your personal «mind» is part of the hologram, you will be surprised that true You are not your «mind», but Tao itself. Now you see that it is useless to analyze why he (or she) behaves like that. Neither you have to explain to the person why his nastiness bothers you. Instead, let's thank him for his hatred because it is part of your hologram.

«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. The second one is not to waste any. / Lo segundo es no malgastar nada. (Ch.67 / Tao)

2. Learning constancy is called enlightenment. / Aprender la constancia se llama la iluminación. (Ch.16 / Middle luck)

3. Though the uncarved block is small, no one under the sky can make it his minister very well. / Aunque el bloque sin tallar es pequeño, nadie bajo el cielo le puede bien hacer su ministro.
(Ch.32 / Middle luck)


«Interpretation»

Tao - Middle luck - Middle luck. Why are you interested in learning Taoism, Zen Buddhism, or Shintoism? Do you want to obtain some oriental secret to control the rest of the world? Or, you just humbly want to keep your mind in a calm state while living in a harsh reality of life? I do not discourage you to take either way because you will reach the same conclusion although it will take much longer than the easiest way. «Don't waste any.» is one of the three treasures in Taoism. The enlightenment in Zen Buddhism is called Satori. In fact, they are telling you the same thing: "Accept every moment as it is with gratitude." The true teachings are simple. Do you still want to suffer an exotic mortification?

«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. The farther you go away from it, the less of it you know. (Ch.47 / Little luck)

2. Therefore, things sometimes gain by losing them. They sometimes lose by gaining them.
(Ch.42 / Good luck)

3. By doing so, descendants never cease to worship. (Ch.54 / Emptiness)


«Interpretation»

Little luck - Good luck - Emptiness. Do you wonder why you have to live? For what purpose? The answer is simple: to learn yourself. Live your life as meticulously as you can, as if you were a Zen monk who cleans and arranges the gravel in the rock garden of a Buddhist temple. It doesn't matter what you do. It is important how intensely you emit Love/Tao by doing it. This is how you learn your own nature and become a Buddha. That is to say, you will learn that you are Buddha/Tao in reality. Chuang Tzu puts it this way: "When the Attainment peaks, it is the same as the beginning. Being the same means being void. Being void means being big." This is how you keep on recreating yourself. This is the true reincarnation.

«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. If you don't learn constancy, you will act stupidly and a calamity will happen. / Si no se aprende la constancia, va a actuar tontamente y una calamidad va a suceder. (Ch.16 / Good luck)

2. I see them go back again. / Los veo regresar de nuevo. (Ch.16 / Good luck)

3. I am alone as if I had left it. / Estoy solo, como si la había dejado. (Ch.20 / Middle luck)


«Interpretation»

Good luck - Good luck - Middle luck. Have you been practicing Tao or Zen for a long time? Have you achieved anything? Particularly, something called Satori? Well, if you are looking for an enlightenment called Satori, your spiritual calamity is happening. You will never get it exactly because you are desperately looking for it. You are stuck in your hologram while seeing all the rest going back to Tao. Please remember: "Above heaven, below heaven, you are alone, who is the only respectable being." Accept your life as a sequence of holograms. You have already left it because from the beginning you were not there. True You are outside your hologram.

«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. And can you make the body soul and the spirit soul keep Tao with them? / ¿Y puede hacer que el Tao mantenga con ellos? (Ch.10 / Good luck)

2. He remains in its fruit and stays away from the flower. /  [Un gran hombre] permanece en el fruto y se mantiene lejos de la flor. (Ch.38 / Emptiness)

3. If you know constancy, you can accept it. / Si se sabe la constancia, lo puede aceptar. (Ch.16 / Tao)


«Interpretation»

Good luck - Emptiness - Tao. When you die, what's gonna happen later? The Chinese used to think that your spirit soul goes up to heaven and the body soul descends into earth. On the other hand, the Zen Buddhist in Japan think that there is neither life nor death, Fusho Fumetsu 不生不滅. They explain it with the Tao/Hologram cycle, using the expression: "the flowers of manifestation / turn / the flowers of manifestation. (Hokke ten Hokke 法華 転 法華)" That is to say, a hologram projects another hologram (while recirculating Tao's energy). That's why, if you want to transform your world, you have to accept it first. Is it difficult? Then, remember «No life, no death». There is just a hologram, right?
