Tao Te Ching Chapter 39-5 Filled valley

Today's Tao

The valley attained One and got filled. (Ch.39)

In Taoism, "the valley" means emptiness.

"Valley God exists any time any where", says Lao Tzu in Chapter 6. (☞See also Valley God 6-1)

Once the emptiness gets Tao's energy, it gets filled and becomes a hologram.

The hologram constitutes the so-called world.

What you think has colours is in fact a hologram and emptiness.

色-[shiki]=colour (☞See Tao by Matsumoto / Chapter 4b / Color)

即-[soku]=just (or immediate)


空-[kuu]=emptiness (or sky)

色即是空 [shiki soku ze ku]

空即是色 [ku soku ze shiki]

"Colour is justly nothing.

 Nothing is justly colour. " (Heart Sutra 般若心経)

That's how the Buddhists summarize the mechanism.

-You can compare Japanese society before and after the bubble-economy. Everything has changed? Not exactly. We still eat. We still sleep. The sun rises. The moon shines.
