Tao Te Ching Chapter 58-1 Dark government
When the government is dark and obscure, the people are naive. (Ch.58)
A: "Master Bonbon, is our government bad?"
B: "Yes. Your government is dark and obscure because the people are bad."
Lao Tzu doesn't agree with you, Master Bonbon.
He thinks that, when the government is less visible, the people are close to Tao.
Don't be upset by "the government" or "the people" inside your TV set.
They are part of your hologram.
When the hologram looks "dark and obscure", in other words, when you don't pay attention to it, you are "naive" like a baby.
Then, you don't doubt that you are one with Tao.

☞Here we have nice Christmas gifts from Japan. The word "matcha" means the tea power for a tea ceremony in Japanese. Have you ever tried a Matcha ice cream? It is delicious. ☞Buckwheat is "soba" in Japanese. The Japanese enjoy the noodles made out of it and use its husks to stuff a comfortable pillow.
