Tao Te Ching Chapter 34-1 Flooded water
Big Tao is like flooded water, going left and right, and all over. (Ch.34)
Tao is omnipresent.
When we say this, what kind of image do you picture?
Is it as if everything is like an onion and you find Tao when you peel it till you reach its core?
If so, it is about time you changed your idea about the fundamental energy Tao.
Tao is bigger than objects as if flooded water or a tsunami sucks in everything.
Tao (=true You) ⊃ self (=so-called "you") + objects (="non-you")
self (=so-called "you") + objects (="non-you") = hologram
Self projects objects. Objects define self.
self = objects = hologram = prayers = manifestation of Tao
Naoto Matsumoto adds:
Please see Daisetz Suzuki's «Manual of Zen Buddhism» (IV. From the Chinese Zen Masters, 2. The Third Patriarch on "Believing in Mind"). Suzuki writes:
The Mind = the Way = the One = Emptiness
