Tao Te Ching Chapter 39-11 Gods rest
If gods were not spiritual, they might rest. (Ch.39)
Everything is a god.
You are a god, too.
In Shintoism in Japan, we express it as "yaoyorozu no kami gami 八百万の神々 (=eight million gods)".
All the objects, all the living beings, even words and thoughts, of course, your own self; all of them are gods.
Your so-called reality is a collection of gods. You must respect every aspect of it.
Don't waste your food because it is a god.
Chew it completely and receive its life with respect.
Don't throw away your ball point pen before you finish all the ink inside.
For the ink is also a god like you.
Everything is the manifestation of Tao.
Don't let the Tao/hologram cycle rest.
