Tao Te Ching Chapter 64-5 Before existence
Do it before it has come to exist. (Ch.64)
That's what they say in Zen Buddhism.
"A flower opens. The world gets up".
A flower symbolizes a hologram.
A hologram opens up and the world comes to exist there.
This is a so-called "reality" that is reconstructed in our "mind" as a catalyst.
"It is like a man with bleary-eyed vision seeing the flowers in the middle of emptiness."
（Shuryogon Sutra Book 4 首楞厳経 第四巻 ☞See also Wild field 53-4）
But, watch out.
Zen Master Dogen cautions.
We must not ignorantly interpret it as: "Since we are lost, we see illusions in the air".
In Buddhism, "a man with bleary-eyed vision" means a man of Satori.
(Kuge 空華, «Shobogenzo»)
Let's decode Today's Tao sentence.
Send love "before" your projected hologram "comes to exist" in the world, asking you to send more love.
The world = your projected hologram

Tao answers your question!
☞Was Godzilla "born" with a grudge? Surely, the monster had been asleep when human beings experimented a hydrogen bomb. He was just a gigantic animal asleep in the middle of evolution. In Akira Kurosawa's «Ikiru», was the man living with a grudge against bureaucratic work? Surely, the man was working to earn a living. He was in the middle of spiritual evolution. Godzilla left his body in Tokyo Bay. The bureaucrat left a small park for children. The director of «Godzilla», Ishiro Honda, worked as an assistant under Akira Kurosawa during the production of «Stray Dog».
