Tao Te Ching Chapter 14-17 Distant past

Today's Tao

Stick to Tao of the distant past, and control the existence of the present by doing so. (Ch.14)

Tao has no time.

Past, present, and future is our memory, which is being created simultaneously now.

So, "stick to Tao" means "accept the present".

Zen Master Dogen says:

"A pine tree is time. A bamboo tree is time. You must not learn that time only flies away".

(Uji 有時, «Shobogenzo»)

Time is attached to your hologram.

Naoto Matsumoto says:

Forget about past. Forget about control.
