Tao Te Ching Chapter 45-1 Completion
Big's completion seems missing something. (Ch.45)
The word "Big" implies Tao.
Tao has completed its work, but it doesn't look perfect.
This is Tao's perfection.
Look at the world in front of you.
This is a good example.
It's perfect, isn't it?
Well, aren't you judging it by someone else's definition of a perfect world?
Not by yours?
Your hologram (=the world) is always perfect although it "seems" missing something.
Today's Tao sentence can be understood from the point of view of Attainment = Beginning.

Tao answers your question!
☞In Kitaro's album «Impression of the West Lake» there is a piece called «Zen». What is Zen really? People ask the question. Kitaro tries to answer it with music. This charming piece is a good answer. Nevertheless, if you need something less abstract, Master Ikkyu does help you. It would be nice if you read Yama Uba the Zen play while listening to Kitaro's musical representation of the beautiful «West Lake 西湖» of Hangzhou in China.
