Tao Te Ching Chapter 28-10 Under the sky
Be the valley under the sky. (Ch.28)
Valley = Void
Under the sky = Hologram
So, "Be the valley under the sky" means "Be one with Tao the nothingness while living in your hologram".
Don't look down on your hologram you are living with.
It is the manifestation of Tao.
Zen Master Dogen says:
"The true prayers are «ten nooks and crannies of the whole world», «mountains, rivers and lands», «grasses, trees, you, and non-you»". (Jishozanmai 自証三昧, «Shobogenzo»)

-There are always people who say something and the others who don't. There are always some whose ideas and stories are heard and the others whose cries and way of living are completely ignored. Some people have the power to write a history and the others don't. When we talk about this island nation called Japan, we really have to know who we are talking about. Some say that the society is homogenous. Is it right? Does a homogenous nation truly exist? I really want to hear stories ignored by the establishment. Unfortunately, they were not allowed to leave stories that might make the upper class feel ashamed.
