Tao Te Ching Chapter 23-9 Bonno soku bodai
When you don't have enough faith, you doubt it. (Ch.23)
Faith and doubt. You know them very well.
Today, let's learn a powerful spiritual tool called "Bonno soku bodai / Being lost is justly Bodhi, or the spiritual awakening".
If you don't have enough faith, you cannot accept all.
Then, you create resistance against accepting your hologram (=the world).
Your resistance create images or feelings that bother you. These hindrances come about in your hologram.
Then, you are completely confused and lost in Mayoi.
But, do not worry.
Their goal is not to make you suffer but to lead you to the attainment of Tao.
That's why in Zen Buddhism they say:
"Being lost is justly the spiritual awakening".
Bonno soku bodai 煩悩即菩提.

-I have been waiting for this truly for decades. I have been thinking for ages that someone has to translate this underrated master's works.
There is nothing wrong with being commercial. Futaro Yamada's imagination and originality deserve a place in Japan's history of literature. I sincerely want to thank Mr Geoff Sant, the translator, and his editor for their contribution without snobbism in introducing the excellent literary works in Japanese into English.
