Tao Te Ching Chapter 40-13 White = Black
Big's white seems black. (Ch.40)
Please read Chapter 25.
"Big" is a nickname of Tao.
Tao's white is black.
Do not judge.
Why do we keep on saying "Do not judge"?
Because judging disturbs the constant change of Tao the fundamental energy.
What seems to be white is, in fact, black. (vice versa)
Something seemingly white changes into something black. (vice versa)
Instead of imposing man-made criteria on Tao, accept and love what exists in front of you.

Tao answers your question!
-When a Japanese man is tired and have no energy to do anything, what does he have in his mind? The answer is an onsen, a traditional natural hot spring resort. Here, thanks to Amazon, you can hear a folk song of Kusatsu onsen, one of the most popular onsens in Japan. In an onsen in Japan, we will be one with nature. Then, you will realize that what seems to have been important is in fact something trifle. By being tired, your body have given you an opportunity to remember it.
