Tao Te Ching Chapter 11-5 Doors & windows

Today's Tao

You cut out doors and windows, and you make a room. (Ch.11)

Let's decode this.

Without an empty space, we cannot use a room.

Naoto Matsumoto adds:

Osamu Kanaya, the author of «Roshi» 老子 (Lao Tzu) alludes to yaodongs 窰洞 in north China. They are dogouts carved out of a hill.

Carving out doors and windows is thus explained.

But aren't we really carving out our reality?

Carefully carved holograms are our world.

See also Tao by Matsumoto / Chapter 11.

It has the chapter's entire English translation and Rapid Decoded.

Mata ashita. See you tomorrow.
