Tao Te Ching Chapter 55-15 Anti-Tao
This is called being against Tao. (Ch.55)
Let's review this chapter.
What do you do to avoid being against Tao?
1) Be like a baby.
2) Don't worry. You are safe.
3) Accept that your own self does not belong to you.
4) You don't have to know about Tao's mechanism.
5) Relax. Without knowing it, you are using Dark Depth Female 玄牝 [gen pi].
6) Don't forget that you are always in harmony.
7) Don't seek Satori.
8) Reduce all.
9) Don't try to manipulate Tao.
10) Don't be strong.

Tao answers your question!
☞Zen and a dancing girl. You might think they have got nothing to do with each other. Then, how about Zen and a motorcycle? Or, a motorcycle and a girl in Izu. A Zen father travels across North America with his kid on the motorbike. An Imperial University student could have traveled on a Honda through the Izu Peninsula, where winding roads and ocean views fascinate latter-day seekers of the Way on a two-wheeler. But, there is one thing incoherent here. Imperial universities in Japan no longer exist because we do not have an empire any more. On the other hand, Honda Motor Company, Ltd. had not even produced a motorbike while the empire was intact.
