Tao Te Ching Chapter 71-2 Radio & Knowing
Not to know "knowing" is difficult. (Ch.71)
Lao Tzu is saying that it is not difficult at all to learn what "knowing" is.
"Knowing" is part of a hologram, which Zen Buddhists call Inmo. (☞See Inmo and No mind 49-10)
Knowledge is a sort of information that you receive from "outside".
It is in the same way that a radio receiver receives a signal.
As no radio program belongs to its listener, we don't own knowledge.
"Knowing" is receiving.
We receive Love through knowledge.
Knowledge is like money in your bank account.
You draw it when you need it.
In other words, you know all you have to know.
If you don't know about something, it is because you don't have to know it.
-Learn knowing nothing 71-1
-Radio and Knowing 71-2
-No difficulty 71-3
-Difficult = Not difficult 71-4
