Tao Te Ching Chapter 38-2 The lowest attainment
The lowest attainment is trying not to lose attainment. That's why there is no attainment. (Ch.38)
A: "Oh, my god, Master Bonbon. I'm losing my Satori. What can I do?"
B: "Fight and control yourself. Stick to your Satori."
Master Bonbon, you must be joking.
Don't be obsessed with Satori.
This is the worst attitude.
If you try to do something in order to attain Satori, you will never get it.
Just remember that you are already in the state of Satori or enlightenment.
You are looking outside in order to get what you have already got.
You see? This is a mental short circuit.

-A cat doesn't need Satori. This is a teaching of life. Life is surely prayers. Natsume Soseki's cat is complicated enough to look for Satori.
