Tao Te Ching Chapter 57-12 Desire

Today's Tao

"I have no desire and the people become an uncarved block by themselves." (Ch.57)

A: "Master Bonbon, I want to have 'no desire'. What can I do?"

B: "Meditate for thirty years, and you will have no desire."

You don't have to meditate and wait for thirty years.

You have no desire from the beginning.

It doesn't belong to you.

Like your mind, feelings, and the clouds in the sky, desire comes and goes.

This is Inmo 恁麼 in Zen Buddhism.

It is part of your hologram.

"Have no desire" means "Accept the fact that you do not possess desire".

If you do it, you will remember that true You are "an uncarved block", which means Tao.

From now on, you don't have to suffer from your desire.

Tao answers your question!

☞Some gifts can save one's life. He may be suffering simply because he cannot name the cause of his sufferings. Once he names it, he can move on to the next stage. He may find a solution to heal the pain, or he might discover that he was not suffering at all. True gifts of life will help him find his way. These are the books of the kind: Ronald D. Davis's «The Gift of Dyslexia» and Daisetz T. Suzuki's «Manual of Zen Buddhism».
