Tao Te Ching Chapter 78-8 State filth

Today's Tao

That's why the sage says, "Those who accept the filth of the country are called the master of the state. (Ch.78)

"We used to have great statesmen, but look who we have now. We have only politicians, filthy politicians!"

Do you feel like saying this kind of remarks once in a while?

If so, please ask yourself two questions.

First, what is a state?

A state is just a backdrop of your hologram.

It is smaller than a TV set. (☞See Country 54-7 and Small = Big 63-4)

Second, what is being filthy?

You mean "being evil"?

There is neither good nor evil in Tao.

Please think about Honen and Shinran's «The Doctrine of Evil persons as the Object of Salvation / Akunin shoki sets 悪人正機説». (☞See Akunin shoki sets / Feel safe 62-3)

In Today's Tao sentence, Lao Tzu wanted to tell us:

"Accept even the 'filth' of your hologram, and you will remember that you are the 'master' and creator of your hologram".
