Tao Te Ching Chapter 66-3 Physically
If you want to be before people, be after them physically. (Ch.66)
There are two things I want you to remember.
1. Every time you hear the word "people", please ask yourself where they are.
They are part of the hologram you project.
Often, in Tao Te Ching, the word "people" is a synonym of a hologram.
2. After = Before.
There is neither time nor space in Tao.
They are parameters to reconstruct the world in the mind.
"After you" is "before you".
(☞See also Before and after 2-7)
Let's practice 自未得度先度他 [jimitokudo sendota]:
Though you haven't crossed it yet, let others cross it first.
This is the best way to learn you and non-you are in fact the same.

-Never heavy 66-4
-Don't compete 66-7
