Tao Te Ching Chapter 23-5 Man's responsibility
How can man keep on doing it for a long time if heaven and earth cannot do it. (Ch.23)
You are not responsible at all.
"Wait a minute, Matsumoto-san! You said: «I am responsible for everything.» yesterday."
Certainly I did.
I said: "true You are responsible because true You are Tao".
Please do not mix true You and your own self.
Your own self, or ego, not true You, is part of your hologram along with man, heaven, and earth.
The Today's Tao sentence means:
"Even heaven and earth's influence is ephemeral. How can a man or your own ego affect other objects in your hologram!".
Your own self is not responsible for anything.
