Tao Te Ching Chapter 72-4 Know yourself
That's why the sage knows himself and doesn't show himself. (Ch.72)
"Learn what the Self is!"
This message of Lao Tzu is often repeated in Tao Te Ching.
Not only in Taoism, but also in Zen Buddhism among others, it seems to be a crucial question.
You may have heard all the bla, bla, bla about it and be tired of hearing more.
So let's get straight to the point.
The so-called Self does not exist.
That's why in Zen they say: "無我 [mu ga], No Self".
There is no such a thing as Self.
What we believe to be Self is part of the collective information (=hologram) that stimulates Tao, which is true You.
