Tao Te Ching Chapter 57-5 No prohibitions
The more annoying prohibitions there are in the world under the sky, the poorer the people get. (Ch.57)
"You must not do this!"
"You must not eat that!"
Look at the people around you.
Aren't they saying things like that?
Prohibitions make people poorer.
They create resistance and block the free flow of Tao.
Don't impose your prohibitions on others.
If others impose their prohibitions on you, what can you do?
Love them, and accept who they are, but you do not necessarily have to do what they are saying.

☞«Forbidden Colors» is the title for the theme of «Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence / Furyo / Senjo no meriikurisumasu», in which David Bowie, Takeshi Kitano, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and Nagisa Oshima got together. The tune was originally composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto acting in the film as a Japanese officer. Gyasi sings beautifully the song. Besides, Yukio Mishima wrote the novel «Forbidden Colors».
