Tao Te Ching Chapter 30-13 Early end
If you are against Tao, you come to an early end. (Ch.30)
"Result is not important at all, but process is."
Many school teachers and your parents may have told you this.
Have they told you why?
Then, I'll tell you why.
Because the process means turning the prayer wheel.
In Zen Buddhism, they call it "turning the ring of the manifestation of Buddha".
This is our raison d'être.
To turn it, in other words, to keep the circulation of Tao's energy, we exist.
Not to achieve some result in our hologram.
Of course, if something is against Tao's mechanism, it doesn't last long in the hologram.

-Zenzai is sweet red been soup. Meoto means a husband and a wife. The story was originally written by Sakunosuke Oda, a commercial but good writer who is unfortunately less known outside Japan. The film is directed by Shiro Toyoda whose works you should not miss if you like Kurosawa and Ozu. He is another master film maker of the time when the industry in Japan had plenty of money available. «Meoto zenzai» could be interpreted as "keeping the relationship of a couple is like cooking Zenzai red bean soup". It takes time to prepare, but is sweet when you enjoy it.
