Tao Te Ching Chapter 20-16 Sea
Calm as if it were the sea. (Ch.20)
Tao resembles the sea.
It is calm, but has plenty of energy inside.
Let's stop the beautiful comparison here, though.
Otherwise, you would be Chuang Tzu's frog in the well.
If you think that Tao is the energy surrounding you, you are surely the frog.
Tao is the sea without its mass.
It is the energy without its volume.
So, you cannot be stuck in there.
You are the energy.

Hokusai's print above certainly inspired Quiksilver's logo, but waves are never that big at Tokyo Bay. Well, who knows. Probably, once every one hundred years when a typhoon hits a right spot. The image on the left is much closer to its reality. So, please do not pack your travel bag to try to catch a huge Tokyo Bay monster wave.
