Tao Te Ching Chapter 59-3 Return & Repeat
Returning early is said to be repeating and accumulating the attainment. (Ch.59)
Let's make it clear.
Attaining Dark Depth
Turning the prayer wheel
Remembering that true You are Tao
Returning early to Tao
Repeating the attainment
Accumulating the attainment
Remembering that you are sustaining Tao's cycle by receiving and emitting the energy Tao.
Do you remember there is no time in Tao?
If you do it once, it is the same as repeating it.

Tao answers your question!
☞Exploring Japanese literature is never easy. The cultural gap used to be insurmountable between where you are and where geisha and samurai lived. Besides, there is a question of translation unless you are fluent in Japanese. How can you translate a Kotodama (=the spirit of a word) based on and developed from onomatopoeia into an abstract concept! In this sense, Yukio Mishima's works are a good and accessible entrance gate to Japanese literature since the author is supposed to have detested the dependence on onomatopoetic expressions.
