Tao Te Ching Chapter 38-14 Tao's Flower
He remains in its fruit and stays away from the flower. (Ch.38)
Certainly, "its fruit" means Tao, and "the flower" its hologram.
You always remain in Tao's "fruit" because true You are Tao itself.
Nevertheless, holograms are important, too.
In Dogen's «Shobogenzo» 道元の正法眼蔵, he explains 法華 転 法華 [hokke ten hokke]:
the flowers of manifestation turn the flowers of manifestation.
It is a beautiful way to describe "holograms provoke holograms".
This makes a circle or a cycle, which is the wheel of manifestation 法輪 [horin].
Keeping the cycle is precisely turning the wheel of manifestation 転法輪 [tenborin].

-There are many ways to turn the wheel of manifestation / Horin. You don't have to look for Satori. You can learn how to rely on Tariki / the power of non-self. Eventually you will find out self and non-self are the same thing. A contemporary Japanese novelist Hiroyuki Itsuki talks about his experience of evacuation from Korea during WW2 and tells us how to "embrace despair".
