Tao Te Ching Chapter 13-10 Trouble and body



Today's Tao

I have big trouble because I have my body. (Ch.13)


Love your trouble because it is part of you.

You project your trouble, and your trouble projects you.

Zen Master Dogen uses the expression "You are mountains, rivers, and lands".

We can say, "we are mountains, rivers, lands, clouds, flowers, our happiness, our contentment, and, of course, our trouble".

Without them, we do not exist.
