Tao Te Ching Chapter 65-5 Rules of Tao
Both of them are rules. (Ch.65)
Don't try to control your hologram, which is what you call "the world".
Don't control it especially by intelligence.
It is the rule to follow if you want to be one with Tao.
But wait a minute!
True You are Tao.
You are one with Tao from the beginning.
If so, you don't have to make a particular effort to follow the rule.
You are following it.
You are not using intelligence.
You are not trying to control your hologram.
That's it. That's the point.
No matter how much you think otherwise, you have neither intelligence nor desire of control.
You are perfectly integrated with Tao.
So, do nothing.
Just accept your hologram.

Tao answers your question!
☞Is it more difficult to talk about the way of Samurai when a warrior is no longer needed? Read «Hagakure» along with «Yukio Mishima on Hagakure». Both were written when arms were more or less considered a hindrance. The original «Hagakure» about 1716. More than 100 years had passed after the period of civil wars in Japan ended. Yukio Mishima narrowly "escaped" the draft just before the end of World War 2 because of some health reasons. He published «Hagakure Nyumon (The introduction to Hagakure)» in 1967 in Japan. «Sun and Steel» in 1968. More than twenty years had passed. It was just twelve years before the release of Nintendo's Game Watch, the predecessor of their DS.
☞The English translation of «Hagakure Nyumo» was published under the title«Yukio Mishima on Hagakure: The Samurai Ethic and Modern Japan» or «The Way of Samurai».
