Tao Te Ching Chapter 23-4 Heaven's responsibility
Who is doing these? Heaven and earth are. (Ch.23)
Who is causing the high wind and downpour?
Of course, heaven and earth, the Nature is.
Who is provoking the global warming?
I know some people want to blame someone else.
Here, you can test yourself whether you truly embrace Lao Tzu's teachings.
Can you say:
"I am responsible for everything"?
True You are Tao, which is the source of your hologram.
"It is the government's fault!"
"Multinational companies are responsible!"
When you stop saying so, you truly make a step forward in Zen and Taoism.
There is no objective world to blame outside you.

-Shusaku Endo was a Christian. Christianity was often the center of his works. Always you can hear his question to himself: "Why did God make this Japanese man a Christian?" In Deep River, he finds an unconventional way to look at Christianity. At the very depth of this Japanese writer, do you see an ineffaceable trace of Buddhism and Shintoism?
