Tao Te Ching Chapter 15-7 Disintegrating

Today's Tao

Disintegrating, as if he were ice about to melt. (Ch.15)

If you know Tao, you are disintegrating.

Hang loose.

Never mind falling apart.

Don't try to structure things.

A Buddhist monk, Bassui Tokusho 抜隊得勝 (1323-1387), said:

"When you are lost, you are like ice."

(«Bassui Kana Hogo» 抜隊仮名法語)


Other Zen Buddhists say:

"When you are tight, you are lost. When you are loosened up, you are Buddha."
