Tao Te Ching Chapter 56-13 Ennoble it?
You cannot ennoble it. (Ch.56)
Tao has nothing to do with human values.
You cannot ennoble Tao.
So, don't worship Tao.
Don't give a special status to Tao
It is counterproductive.
Tao is neutral.
Don't make a wish to Tao unless you cannot help it.
No matter how much you ask Tao to do something for your benefit, it won't help you.
If you worship Tao, you cannot regard the so-called reality as a hologram.
For the same reason, don't worship yourself.
Don't feed your ego.
Your own self doesn't belong to you. (☞see You and non-you)
