Tao Te Ching Chapter 77-1 Bend a bow
Heaven's Tao is like bending a bow! (Ch.77)
"I'm in Heaven... I'm in Heaven..."
Some call it a silly love song.
Others see a profound truth in the silly love song.
The point is: you are always in Heaven.
You don't go to Heaven because you are already there.
Your Heaven is "right here right now".
One thing has to be clearly understood.
Please do NOT think that you will go back to Tao after you finish your life or hologram.
This is wrong.
You are always "inside" Tao while projecting your holographic life because true You are Tao itself.
You never leave Tao.
You just project doubt.
Why do you do it?
You have to bend the bow when you put a string on it.
This is the key to answer the question, Lao Tzu says.
-Bend a bow 77-1
-Suppress doubt? 77-2
-Raise Hossho? 77-3
-No excess / Why does history repeat? 77-4
-Lack and Supply 77-5
-Nirvana / Reduced excess and Supplied lack 77-6
-Man's self 77-7
-Rich man's excess 77-8
-Love and Excess 77-9
-After life / Task successfully accomplished 77-11
-Secret of superiority 77-12

Lao Tzu answers your question!
☞«Tao Te Ching» Key word comparison (11) / -Do nothing (treat things without interference) - Let's see how they translate 是以聖人処無為之事 行不言之教 in Chapter 2. / "Therefore the sage manages affairs without doing anything, and conveys his instructions without the use of speech." On the left, «Tao Te Ching: The Way of Virtue» translated by James Legge. / "that's why a sage abides in the realm of nothing's own doing, living out that wordless teaching." On the right, «Tao Te Ching» translated by David Hinton.
