Tao Te Ching Chapter 80-2 "110 vessels"

Today's Tao

Have them possess one hundred ten vessels, but don't let them use them. (Ch.80)

The Kanji / Chinese character 器 [ki / utsuwa / qì] has various meanings: a vessel, a tool, and the capacity of a person among others.


It is a homonym of 気 [ki / qi] energy, but not the same character.

Ki the energy is not a hologram.

Ki the vessel symbolizes a hologram. (☞See Vessels 28-13)

You project your hologram.

You give it a concrete image: a vessel.

Your own self is part of the vessel.

Don't let a part of the vessel "use" another part.

In other words, you should not "use" or try to control your hologram because you cannot.

Just accept the projected image, the holographic vessel, or Life as it is.
