Tao Te Ching Chapter 56-9 Closer to Tao
Therefore, you cannot get close to it. (Ch.56)
There is no point trying to get closer to Tao because you are Tao.
You are the fundamental energy.
Tao, Buddha, Love, the higher being.
You can call it whatever you like.
How can you get closer to it if you are the energy!
Don't try to get closer to Tao because it is counterproductive.
If you try to leave your hologram (=the world), the act will make you stuck there.
You must not try to get out.
You just accept it.
That's why we say:
Then, you will remember true You are outside the hologram.

Tao answers your question!
☞The Japanese used to adore Judo. We still like the sport, but it is a little difficult to imagine that some Japanese companies invest their money in a musical or cinematographic venture about Judo these days. Hibari Misora sang a song with a national sucess: "Yawara", which means Judo. She sang another one "Yawara no Otoko / A man of Yawara". Akira Kurosawa made two films about "Sanshiro Sugata", who is the legendary (but imaginary) character of modern Judo.
