Tao Te Ching Chapter 60-1 Boil fish
Governing a big country is like boiling a little fish. (Ch.60)
A: "Master Bonbon, I am the president of a big country. What do I have to do to govern my country?"
B: "Boil your little fish."
Well said, Master Bonbon.
But this gentleman is a president not a cook.
When you govern a big country, you treat it as if you were boiling a little fish.
What does it mean by "like boiling a little fish"?
If you stir the fish with a spoon, you may spoil it.
Therefore, if you govern a country, you do not meddle or intervene.
"A country" signifies your hologram.
So, the Today's Tao sentence means:
"Do not try to control your hologram".
