Tao Te Ching Chapter 71-3 No difficulty
The sage has no difficulty. (Ch.71)
A: "Master Bonbon, it is too difficult to attain Satori. I don't care how much it costs. Can I buy Satori?"
B: "Idiot! Of course, you have to go through plenty of difficulties and adversities before you buy Satori. But, you know, there is a shortcut. The price is negotiable."
No one has to go through difficulties before he gets what he wants.
As you know all you have to know, you have got all you have to have.
We discussed it yesterday. (☞See Radio and Knowing 71-2)
Trust the world you project (=your hologram).
"The sage" means you.
You have no difficulty unless you think it is difficult.
That's why Lao Tzu tells us:
"Do not judge".
