Tao Te Ching Chapter 62-1 Hidden Tao
Something called Tao is hidden at the bottom of everything. (Ch.62)
Everything is your hologram, that is to say, an illusion.
Having said that, this does not mean at all that the hologram is ignorable.
On the contrary, it has to be cherished.
Everything in your world, which is your hologram, contains the fundamental energy Tao.
Whether it is qualified as good or bad, at the very bottom of anything, Tao hides itself, waiting to be received.
Be nice to Tao.
Be nice to the world in front of you.
Be nice to your own self.

☞While Genshin and Honen worshipped the pictures and statues of Amida, the objects of Shinran's worship were written characters. There were three sets: 南無阿弥陀仏 [namu amida butsu], 南無不可思議光如来 [namu fukashigi ko nyurai], 帰命尽十方無碍光如来 [kimei jinjippokai muge ko nyorai]. The last of the three contains the word "muge 無碍 ko 光", which means "Infinite light", "undisturbed light", and "the light that lights up everything". Rennyo is the second founder of Jodo Shin shu / Pure Land Shin school. Daisetz Suzuki was not only a Zen specialist, but wrote about Shin Buddhism and Amida Butsu / Amitabha Buddha.
