Tao Te Ching Chapter 53-6 Too much money

Today's Tao

Some wear a beautiful dress with a sharp sword, tired of eating and drinking, having too much money. (Ch.53)

When you see excessive wealth, do you get jealous?

Please don't judge anyone because they are rich.

They are being "rich" for you.

Zen Master Dogen clearly says:

"The entire world is just an ume flower. Since the entire world is an ume flower, the entire world is Buddha's hologram."


(Baika 梅華, «Shobogenzo»)

The world of luxury, gourmandism, and capitalism is your hologram and a catalyst to stimulate you.

Don't doubt this.

The master also says:

"Grasp intuitively that an ume flower is a hologram. Don't look for another answer."


(Baika 梅華, «Shobogenzo»)

Tao answers your question!

☞If you are rich, your best holiday destination is an onsen (natural hot spa). If you can afford it, you just want to stay there for weeks and weeks. That's what writers and painters used to do in Japan. If you are not so wealthy, you can still go there and spend a night or two. In the 60s in the country of the rising sun, we were hard workers with small wages, so it was beyond our imagination to go to an onsen every weekend. Thanks to Tsumura Juntendo's bath salt «Bathclin» (I don't know what it means. A bath clean?), we were able to take a nice and relaxing bath, an economical onsen substitute.
