Tao Te Ching Chapter 49-6 Tariki / faithful
I think someone faithful is faithful. (Ch.49)
Why don't we regard faith as a tool?
If you have faith in something, you are less prone to be fooled by your gigantic ego or Self in Mayoi.
Shinran shonin's Tariki / Other-power is an excellent tool in order to activate Dark Depth Female 玄牝 [gen pi] and change the world (=your hologram).
By asking Tariki / Other-power to do all the work, logically you do nothing.
You create no resistance while your hologram, which is the world, is transforming itself.

Tao answers your question!
☞«Tariki: Embracing Despair, Discovering Peace». The subtitle of the book is a nice and correct way to explain the word "Tariki / Other Power". Of course, the Other Power embraces happiness and joy, too. But the idea is that you should embrace something hard to embrace. For the very hardship is a manifestation of Buddha's love as well as a miracle. Japanese novelist Hiroyuki Itsuki talks about his teenage experience of the Japanese repatriation from the Korean Peninsula. "Even good people will become Buddha, not to mention evil people." (Shinran's Akunin Shoki Setsu)
