Tao Te Ching Chapter 59-6 Never-ending cycle
If you don't see the end of this cycle, you can keep the country. (Ch.59)
A: "Master Bonbon, banks are bankrupt. Our country is collapsing. Do something for us!"
B: "Trust your bank managers and political leaders. Leave your money in the stock market. Meditate and wish that stock prices will go up."
When Lao Tzu says "the country", it means "your hologram".
Zen Master Fuyo Dokai 芙蓉道楷 (Fu-jung Tao-k'ai) called it "blue mountains".
"Blue mountains walk constantly. 青山常運歩"
This is the Tao / hologram cycle.
It is Hokke ten hokke 法華転法華: Buddha's manifestation turns Buddha's manifestation (=Tenborin 転法輪).
This cycle of the manifestation of Love will never stop.
In the chapter of Hokke ten hokke in «Shobogenzo», Master Dogen guarantees you that the spin of this cycle has never stopped nor will stop.
You know why?
Because you are the cycle.

Tao answers your question!
☞Intelligence has the least importance for Lao Tzu. Nevertheless, some books are worth reading. You can get information in order to reduce your knowledge in general. One is Lynne McTaggart's «The Field». Thanks to the book, I learned plenty of information about the recent discoveries in various academic fields that correspond to Lao Tzu's teachings. Another is Shusaku Endo's «Silence». The Japanese Catholic author tries to look for the answer to the question: "Why did God keep silent at the very moment when one needed his voice?".
