Tao Te Ching Chapter 41-1 Tao's move
Returning is Tao's move. (Ch.41)
Why are we not able to give a name to Tao?
Because Tao is not an object.
Tao is a movement.
Tao's movement is Tao. ("the movement of the movement" is the movement?)
The movement of nothingness is Tao.
What kind of movement is it?
It is a constant returning.
When you receive Tao, Tao returns to Tao.
When you emit Tao, Tao returns to Tao.
Zen masters' circle and Yin Yang circle express it.
Returning is rebirth.
This is the reincarnation without time.

Tao answers your question!
-You may be interested in reading Mishima's works, but hesitate to do so because of his image of being an ultra right-winger. In these two books, he hardly talks about his nationalist dogma. Instead, he tells us about women and their passion of love. They are an ideal entrance gate to Mishima's literature. Especially, «The Sound of Waves» has been incarnated by legendary Japanese actresses; notably, Sayuri Yoshinaga and Momoe Yamaguchi. It is quite exceptional among Yukio Mishima's novels that the audience enjoy the story of the movie and the beauty of the actress without knowing the name of the author who wrote its original. Some are pleasantly surprised when they discover the name later on.
