Tao Te Ching Chapter 81-1 Beautiful words
Trustworthy words are not beautiful. Beautiful words are not trustworthy. (Ch.81)
If you don't have time, please just check this chapter.
As Lao Tzu says, reading words is not very important.
The important thing is living.
Living is the most religious act of all.
There are three basic points.
1. The so-called world is a hologram and catalyst to keep Tao's energy circulating.
2. "Self" doesn't exist. "Self" is just a word given to one part of a hologram. (☞See also Tao Te Ching / Chapter 7 / No Self)
3. Words, including knowledge and thoughts, are part of a hologram.
What is living?
Living is turning the prayer wheel.
It is called Tenborin 転法輪 in Zen Buddhism. (☞See Tao's flower 38-14 and Kensho Jobutsu / No away 47-3)
It is receiving Tao's energy through a hologram and emitting Tao's energy while projecting a hologram.
On your face, it takes place.
It is called Menju 面授, Face transmission. (☞See Face Transmission / Menju / Beauty 80-8)
Beautiful words, such as logic, analysis, judgment, and justice among others, are obstacles that increase your resistance.

Lao Tzu answers your question!
☞«Recommended Books 11» I am glad you are the one who is reading this recommendation. I am sure that I can count on you. Next time you meet one of your friends who are interested in Japan's literature, please mention the name of Osamu Dazai. "Who's that Dazai guy? I know Mishima and Banana, but I have never heard of him", he might reply. Osamu Dazai is probably the most underrated Japanese novelist outside the country. So, the artist needs your help. When the situation is the most desperate, you just feel like laughing. Why? Because laughter has magic. It transforms a tragedy into a comedy within a second. «No Longer Human» and «The Setting Sun» are tragically funny. Both are considered masterpieces in Japan. Smile guaranteed.
