Tao Te Ching Chapter 50-2 Life
Men of life are three in ten. (Ch.50)
30 percent of people are obsessed with "life", Lao Tzu said.
Compared to his time, the number has gone up considerably, I suppose.
It is about time we changed the tendency.
Your life is just a catalyst and hologram.
True You exist outside it.
In other words, your own feelings, thoughts and body come along with the sky, the sea, and the news on TV.
You don't own them.
Therefore, you don't have to suffer from them.
-Life non-life 50-1
-Thick of life 50-5
-Excellent life care 50-6
-No one-horned water buffalo 50-7
-No tiger 50-8
-No blade 50-9
-No desperate situation 50-10
-Tao by Matsumoto / Tao Te Ching / Chapter 50

☞Miyamoto Musashi, the swordsman. Here are some of his precepts. 1. I do not regret things. [ware koto ni oite kokai sezu]. 2. I respect Buddha and gods, but I do not rely on Buddha and gods. [busshin hakkishi, busshin wo tanomazu] 3. Think superficially about body. Think profoundly about life. [mi wo asaku omoi, yo wo fukaku omou]
