Tao Te Ching Chapter 54-15 Because of Satori
It's because of this. (Ch.54)
It's because you are the one who creates the world, which is your hologram.
Forget trying to reach Satori.
Because you are already in the state whether you are aware of it or not.
Master Dogen says:
"It doesn't matter if you have reached Satori or not.
It doesn't matter if you reached Satori a long time ago or not.
If you have a hologram, you are Buddha."
(Ganzei 眼睛, «Shobogenzo»)
Therefore, you know everything.
Everything is in harmony.
Because our everyday world is Satori itself.
No matter how hard you refuse to accept this.

Tao answers your question!
☞W. Somerset Maugham spent much time in the Southern Pacific Ocean and wrote many short stories about the people there. «Rain» might be one of the best. ☞While Lao Tzu may be the name for a collection of old wisdom rather than an individual, we are fairly sure that Chuang Tzu really lived in China in the 4th century B.C.. Nevertheless, both «Tao Te Ching» and «Chuang Tzu» now contain notes and comments written by later hands. On the other hand, Dogen's «Shobogenzo» has been kept relatively untouched by misleading interpretations.
