Tao Te Ching Chapter 43-2 No space
No existence enters no space. (Ch.43)
As water enters gaps, Tao goes into any space.
There is no space without Tao.
"No existence" means the existence without any form.
It is Tao.
"No space" means the space without any form.
Space is a concept.
The forms you find there are holograms.
Tao is everywhere.
Or rather, "everywhere" is part of Tao.
-The softest 43-1
-No space 43-2
-Valuable no-action 43-3
-Without words 43-4

Tao answers your question!
-Can you see the upper Kanji / Chinese character in the photo of Mr John Kaizan Neptune's «Dance for Neptune»? 法 [ho]. This is the same character as the [bo] of Dogen's «Shobogenzo 正法眼蔵». The Character below is 楽 [gaku]. 法 [ho] basically means rules. In Buddhism, it is used to express Buddha's manifestation, therefore, sometimes translated as teachings. 楽 [gaku] can also be pronounced as [raku], like Raku of Raku-yaki 楽焼き clay works, which means easy or happy. Happy manifestation!
