Tao Te Ching Chapter 65-8 Return to Tao
You return to Tao with things. (Ch.65)
There are two key functions here.
The word indicates the energy cycle.
This cycle is Tao, therefore, true You.
Everything returns to Tao.
This is Big Natural Flow, that is to say, Tao's perfect integration 大順 [taijun]. (☞See Chuang Tzu's teachings 42-8)
2. "With things".
The word "things" suggests a hologram.
The key is the preposition "with".
This implies a hologram's function as a catalyst.
Your mind and body are part of your hologram along with mountains, rivers, flowers, and stars, in short, with all other elements of what you see (and you cannot see).
All of them return to the neutral state of Tao (=the state before your hologram is projected, =Bumo misho izen).
What we call "one life" is the emission and return of a hologram.
But, remember there is no time in Tao.
The moment something begins, it ends.
The moment something ends, it begins.
No life, no end of life.
不生不滅 [fusho fumetsu].

Tao answers your question!
☞There was a band called "Japan". There is a band called "Tokio Hotel". A few decades ago, it seemed that Japan had abandoned being "Japan" and was transforming all its territory into "Tokyo". All the provincial areas wanted to be as sophisticated as Tokyo, and the country was on the verge of a successful transition from "lost Japan" to "Greater Tokyo". Old soldiers did not disappear easily, and now it seems that the pendulum has changed its direction completely. The fastest aging industrialized nation is creating a bigger and bigger mass of post-comsumers. The younger Japanese haven't got cash to spend for sure, but they are still happy because spending money is no longer "sexy" there.
