Tao Te Ching Chapter 14-14 The evasive being

Today's Tao

This is called the evasive being. (Ch.14)

You cannot get hold of Tao.

Can you touch the magnetic field?

Can you touch radio waves?

We can only perceive things projected in our mind, that is to say, holograms.

Words are quite ironical, but one has to say: "Only illusions are perceivable".

Dogen says:

You must not think that mountains, rivers, and lands are only mountains, rivers, and lands. (Keiseisanshoku 谿声山色, «Shobogenzo»)

Naoto Matsumoto says:

Cherish your illusions (=holograms, =the world). Herman Hesse says the same thing in his «Siddhartha».
