Tao Te Ching Chapter 36-2 Weak = Strong
If you want to weaken something, you must strengthen it for a while. (Ch.36)
Weak is strong. Strong is weak.
All the masters say we have to stop judging.
Some wonder why.
Please look at this picture.
This is weak, and that is strong.
We think that weakness leads to strength and vice versa.
This cycle helps us understand the relation between a hologram and Tao.
The hologram stimulates Tao, and Tao creates the hologram.
Eventually, we come to realize that this cycle is one.
Therefore, no judging.
