Tao Te Ching Chapter 48-4 Get the world
You always get the world by doing nothing. (Ch.48)
Doing nothing signifies accepting the fact that we are doing nothing.
It is about time we stopped bragging we are in control.
We can't even control our body, emotion, or mind.
"The world" is part of your hologram.
So, "get the world" means "accept your hologram".
We can do it right here right now, can't we?
Or, do you still want to say that you need years of mortification and meditation before you receive Satori as a diploma or something?

☞«Manual of Zen Buddhism» By Taisetz Teitaro Suzuki is a good book. It is not a "manual" in the sense of a training manual in which you can find out how to do a thing, but is a manual in that of "a book of the forms to be used by priests in the administration of the sacraments." (Apple Dictionary) The book has a comprehensive collection of sutra prayers from India and admonitions by Chinese and Japanese masters.
