Tao Te Ching Chapter 12-3 Five tastes


Today's Tao

Five Tastes make man's mouth injured. (Ch.12)


Do you like hot chili?

Do you like hot Tom Yam Kung?

Do you like hot Wasabi?

They are delicious, but Lao Tzu may not agree with you.

Don't be fooled by tastes.

They are part of your hologram.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 11-4 Cup


Today's Tao

Thanks to this emptiness, the cup is useful. (Ch.11)


Lao Tzu is not talking about moral.

He is talking about the mechanism of holography.

"Emptiness" means Tao, the fundamental energy.

"The cup" is a projected image.

Thanks to the holographic image created in your brains, you can feel the sensation of touching them.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 9-4 Don't be haughty


Today's Tao

If you are haughty when you are rich and noble, you are asking for calamity. (Ch.9)


There is nothing wrong if you are rich.

It is fantastic if you are famous.

But the question is "Isn't it more difficult for you to accept that the world in front of you is a hologram, that is to say, an illusion, especially if you are rich and famous?"

Tao Te Ching Chapter 8-4 Water is close to Tao


Today's Tao

Therefore, it is close to Tao. (Ch.8)


There are so many crossroads in our life.

There are so many decisions to make.

When it is hard to make up your mind, think what water might do in that situation.

Be like water.

Then, you are One with Tao.


Naoto Matsumoto adds:

It is very useful in life.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 17-5 Doubt


Today's Tao

When you lack in faith, there is doubt. (Ch.17)


When you are lacking in the faith of Taoism, that is to say, you don't believe in Taoism, you surely doubt Tao's effectiveness of transforming your hologram (=the world).

It is up to you, but why don't you give it a try.

You will see how effective it is.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 8-5 Water never errs


Today's Tao

Simply, it never contends, so it never errs. (Ch.8)


What else do I have to say?

When it is so true, there is no need to decode this.

Water doesn't compete, so it never errs.

Do not fight.

There is neither a winner nor a loser in your hologram.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 18-2 Hypocrisy


Today's Tao

After man's intelligence and discrimination have appeared, we have great hypocrisy. (Ch.18)


Many people think they are intelligent.

They discriminate one from another and judge everything.

They are stuck in the dichotomy of good and evil.

They don't know how to handle the concept of evil, so they need hypocrisy.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 9-3 No gold


Today's Tao

No one can protect gold and jade safely if they fill a hall. (Ch.9)


Remember everything you see is a hologram.

There is no point protecting it.

It is useless to keep it.

You can't protect it.

You don't have to do it, either.

Today's Tao

Big trouble is like your body. (Ch.13)


Your body doesn't belong to you.

It is part of your hologram.

Your big trouble doesn't belong to you, either.

It is part of your hologram, too.

All of them belong to your hologram.

Today's Tao

Five Notes make man's ears deaf. (Ch.12)


Don't be fooled by sounds.

They are part of your hologram.

It is there as a catalyst.

But precisely because of this, don't despise your hologram.

Love your hologram.

Accept the world as it is.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 11-3 Clay



Today's Tao

You knead clay, and you make a cup. (Ch.11)


You may think everything is tangible.

But can you touch a cup without using your brain?

Your brain needs to project a holographic image of the cup in your mind before you feel the sensation of touching it.

Are you sure everything is tangible?

Today's Tao

If you hammer and sharpen it, you cannot keep it long. (Ch.9)


Don't be sharp.

Don't be smart.

Don't use your intelligence.

If you are sharp and brilliant, it is hard for you to accept all.

If you cannot accept all, you cannot be one with Tao.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 17-4 The worst ruler


Today's Tao

The next is the one that they despise. (Ch.17)


Don't despise the world and other people.

Don't complain about them.

It is like complaining about stars and flowers.

It is resistance.

It is a waste of energy.

You are blocking the flow of energy between Yin and Yang.

You are disturbing change.

This is the worst solution if you want your hologram to transform itself to another stage.

Don't resist.

Let it flow.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 8-3 Water stays at the bad place


Today's Tao


It stays at the place which many people think is bad. (Ch.8)


It (water) never judges.

Mata ashita. See you tomorrow.


Naoto Matsumoto adds:

Water never judges, right?

Neither does Tao.

People judge, you may think.

Wouldn't it be better if they did not judge?

But remember you project your "people", so when you judge, they judge.

Well, this is how your hologram works.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 17-3 An awesome ruler


Today's Tao

The next is the one that they are afraid of. (Ch.17)


Looking at your hologram with awe is better than despising it or complaining about it.

But being afraid of the world is not good at all.

No matter how menacing your world looks at present, it is there to be a catalyst or a trigger.

Giving you a hard time is not its goal.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 17-2 The second highest


Today's Tao

The second highest is the one that they are familiar with and praise. (Ch.17)


If you can love all the world without being obsessed with it, it could be even better than the former.

Having said that, the misunderstanding of the word "Love" is a classical theme of discussion.

Obviously, many people think that to love someone is to virtually colonise him, saying, "I give everything, so he has to be mine".

Love is not possession at all.

Because of this risk, loving your hologram could be the second best in Taoism.

On the other hand, gratitude doesn't have any risk.

It is one of the best forms of Love.

Say "Thank you".


Naoto Matsumoto adds:


Shinran Shonin 親鸞上人 , the founder of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, not Zen, asked his believers to site prayers not to become a buddha but to thank Buddha.

See Tao by Matsumoto / Chapter 17 / Taoism's best way for the spoken text.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 14-2 The form without a form



Today's Tao

It's called the beginning of everything, the form without a form. (Ch.14)


Don't think Tao is an entity in the material world.

It doesn't have a form. It is the fundamental energy that creates all.


Naoto Matsumoto adds:


When we say: "Tao includes all the world or your hologram", it is more in a metaphorical sense than in a physical sense.

Please be aware that Tao doesn't have space.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 28-3 Valley


Today's Tao

Be the valley under the sky. (Ch.28)


In Taoism, the valley means "vacuum", "void", or "emptiness".

"Emptiness" means Tao.

This is one of the keys to understand Taoism.

Be Tao because you are Tao.

Forget about your mind and body.

They are part of your hologram like clouds in the sky.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 30-2 Tao likes to return


Today's Tao

This thing likes to return. (Ch.30)


Tao likes to return.

The world returns to the state before it is created.

In Zen Buddhism, this is called Bumo misho izen.

"Bumo misho izen" is an important expression.

But, unfortunately, it seems to be rarely used in English.

Today's Tao

If you are restless, you lose the root. (Ch.26)


Don't run around.

Don't try to convince others.

If you are restless, you are no longer one with Tao.

"Don't move until you are forced to."

This is Chuang Tzu's maxim.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 29-2 A god's vessel


Today's Tao

The world under the sky is a god's vessel. Don't do anything to it. (Ch.29)


Your hologram is created by you.

A god's vessel is your vessel because you are a god, because you are Tao.

You may wonder how you can control it.

By doing nothing, you can transform your hologram (=the world) through Dark Depth (=Tao).

Doing nothing means accepting all.

This attitude is called Dark Depth Female.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 30-1 Force by soldiers


Today's Tao

Helping human leaders doesn't mean forcing the world under the sky by soldiers. (Ch.30)


"Human leaders" means "people".

"The world under the sky" means "your hologram".

"By soldiers" means "by force", therefore "to act directly".

So, the first sentence signifies:

"Helping people doesn't mean that you act on them directly in your hologram".


For the translation of the whole chapter, please see Tao by Matsumoto / Chapter 30.
