Tao Te Ching Chapter 11-7 Nothingness is working


Today's Tao

Thus, something can be useful because nothingness is working. (Ch.11)


"Nothingness" means Tao.

Tao is working behind all the material beings.

Nothingness is you. (True You are Tao.)

You project your body.

You project everything in your mind. (Even your mind itself.)

Nothingness is working because you are working.

Do you means "Tao" is the "life energy" in our body, which it can generates (stimulate) the emptiness become existence, and/or silence become excitement.

Naoto Matsumoto said...

That's exactly it, Mr tikno-san!

The Life Energy can be called the flow of Love, and exists in and outside of our body.

Emptiness=existence

Silence=excitement

This is truly the teaching of Zen Buddhism.
