Tao Te Ching Chapter 64-14 Before completed

Today's Tao

When people do a job, they always defeat it just before it's completed. (Ch.64)

Let's talk about a less ideal approach first.

Even if you cannot suppress a desire to profit from the world surrounding you, don't blame yourself.

Just don't try to act on the world, which is your hologram.

Do you try to change something even if you are happy about it?

No, right?

You try to change it because you are not happy.

This refusal of your hologram creates resistance.

It will block the natural flow of Tao "just before" the hologram comes to exist.

With a seemingly disfigured world, you get frustrated, and it will increase the resistance.

How can you profit from the situation!

Let's discuss another approach tomorrow.

Tao answers your question!

☞Osamu Dazai and Yukio Mishima detested each other. One was jealous of the other, one did not like the other's political views, or one despised the other's writing style. While Dazai's style was based on the oral tradition of story-telling in Japan, that of Mishima was more solidly constructed in terms of the signification of a word or a phrase. One thing is quite clear. Because of the difference, it is easier to translate Mishima's works than those of Dazai. Though it does not at all mean that the latter's works are better than those of the former, it explains why Mishima is internationally better known than Dazai.
