Tao Te Ching Chapter 64-13 Don't stick
He doesn't stick to anything, so he doesn't lose anything. (Ch.64)
In Chapter 29 and this Chapter 64, Lao Tzu says:
"If you stick to it, you will lose it".
(☞See If you stick to it 29-4 and Stick and Lose 64-11)
Why do you "lose" something if you are attached to it?
Because it is fundamentally against the function of a hologram, which we sometimes call the world, life, or self.
The objective of a hologram is to stimulate Tao's energy to flow.
That's why constant change is very important.
If you are attached to something, you are refusing the change and blocking the natural flow of Tao.
Did you get it?
Then, let's go a step farther.
Can you really stick to something if you don't possess your own self?
No, you can't, right?
Attachment is also part of your hologram, Inmo butsu 什麼物 the what-on-earth thing.
We don't know where it has come from. (是什麼物恁麼来 [ze inmo butsu inmo rai])
If you don't have anything from the beginning, you cannot lose anything.

☞Yukio Mishima's «The Sound of Waves / Shiosai» has been cinematized five times. The stars of the times such as Sayuri Yoshinaga and Momoe Yamaguchi acted the leading role Hatsue. Yukio Mishima said that he had been inspired by «Daphnis and Chloe», and Hatsue is the Japanese Chloe. Unfortunately, the DVDs with these legendary actresses are not available at Amazon. This «Animated Classics of Japanese Literature» is "family friendly" and will not embarrass the parents while viewing it.
