Tao Te Ching Chapter 67-2 Parents

Today's Tao

Simply I am Big, so I resemble an idiot who doesn't look like his parents. (Ch.67)

Big is a nickname of Tao. (☞See Ch. 25 Manifestation and Big 25-9)

Then, what is "an idiot who doesn't look like his parents"?

Please do not mix this expression with Bumo misho izen: before the father and the mother are born.

This expression is the translation of the Kanji / Chinese characters 不肖 [fusho].

It means an idiot, but the two characters originally signified "not to resemble the parents" (Osamu Kanaya, «Roshi 老子», Kodansha Gakujutsu Bunko)

Today's Tao sentence means:

"Simply true You are Tao, so you resemble an idiot who does not look like others in your hologram".

Don't be intelligent, and you will remember Tao is true You.

☞Osamu Kanaya (1920 - 20060) was a Japanese specialist on Chinese philosophy. It seems that his works have never been translated into English. It is a pity.
