Tao Te Ching Chapter 51-10 Don't rely
Let it work, but don't rely on it. (Ch.51)
Leave the world alone.
The world is your hologram.
In fact, it is working as you like.
Don't rely on your hologram.
It will not give you any preferential treatment.
Don't be attached to it.
"I hate this world because it doesn't treat me right."
Well, why don't we stop using "I, my, me, mine".
Because Self is an illusion.
It only exists in your hologram.
Let's use the word "one" instead.
This is a nice approach to accept No Self 無我 [mu ga / wu-wo] in Zen.

Tao answers your question!
☞Although the islands are sometimes called the country of the rising sun, their inhabitants enjoy «The Setting Sun» as much. Osamu Dazai describes the strange joy of decadence. Yasunari Kawabata adored the game of go and wrote about a master who just wanted to create the beauty of it. Winning means nothing at all if the game is ugly.
