Tao Te Ching Chapter 22-3 Hollow

Today's Tao

Hollow therefore filled up. (Ch.22)

Do you remember "Thirty spokes share one hub. (Ch.11)"?

Hollow and filled. It is about holography.

If you want to be full, empty yourself.

Reduce and reduce. Particularly reduce your knowledge.

If you have nothing, you have everything.

Those words have confused many.

All right. Let's make them clear once and for all.

First, the so-called world is a hologram. That's why it is called nothing or emptiness.

Second, to learn it, your knowledge simply bothers you. Reduce it and stop analyzing.

Third, then, you will realize that the world, including your own self, is a hologram. Don't look down on it because it is a manifestation of the fundamental energy Tao. That's why it is called everything or all.

If you can love the world, you don't have to listen to all the gibberish, mine included.

-On the photo of «In Praise of Shadows», can you see a katakana character Mu ム? Shadows are nothing. Shadows are plenty. Junichiro Tanizaki, one of the most prominent writers in modern Japan, explains the importance of shadows. There is another important one-syllable expression Ma 間. It means space/void.
