Tao Te Ching Chapter 63-10 Don't try
Therefore, the sage never tries to do big things. Because of this, he often does them. (Ch.63)
A severe Zen master might say:
"Don't be stupid.
Don't try to change the world.
It's your hologram.
Don't be fooled by the illusion.
Don't look down on it, either.
It is the manifestation of Buddha's love.
Accept the love with respect.
Then, it is your turn to create Buddha's love."
Lao Tzu may be a little less demanding.
He doesn't mind if you change the world, or your own hologram.
He even tells us how.
"Don't do big things", he says.
The things will be done without your trying to do them.
This attitude of doing nothing is called Dark Depth Female, 玄牝 [gen pi].
