Tao Te Ching Chapter 16-9 Satori
Learning constancy is called enlightenment. (Ch.16)
Some people are too obsessed with Satori, or enlightenment.
Here, Lao Tzu says quite plainly learning constancy is Satori.
Then, what is "constancy"?
It is to return to Tao.
How can you do it?
By leaving your hologram.
The easiest way is to accept all.
If you can love all, it is much better.
-Do emptiness 16-1
-Guard stillness 16-2
-Material beings 16-3
-Go back 16-4
-Know constancy 16-11
-King = Heaven 16-14
-Heaven = Tao 16-15
-The body decomposes 16-17

-Satori is everyday life. Everyday life is Za-zen. As Master Dogen said, just squatting is not Za-zen. Accepting life is Za-zen. Emitting the fundamental energy Tao is Za-zen. Satori is not a state. It is an act of receiving and emitting Tao the energy. Do you need a DVD or a CD for it?
