Tao Te Ching Chapter 19-6 Reduce desire
Diminish self and reduce desire. (Ch.19)
"Reduce your desire and learn contentment."
"Meditate calmly and diminish your own self"
Even some Zen masters say so.
But there is no such thing called "self" from the beginning.
How can you reduce or diminish something that doesn't exist!
Don't worry about so-called self and desire.
If they seem to bother you, just leave them alone.
They are part of your hologram like the snow on the roof. They will melt eventually.
Self and desire are just part of a nice Christmas photo.
