If you have questions, I am more than happy to answer them.
Let's discuss the subject.


«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. The lowest attainment is trying not to lose attainment. That's why there is no attainment. / El logro más bajo es tratar de no perder el logro. Por eso, no hay logro. (Ch.38 / Emptiness)

2. Movement defeats cold. / El movimiento vence el frío. (Ch.45 / Middle luck)

3. No one can protect gold and jade safely if they fill a hall. / Nadie puede proteger el oro y las piedras de jade seguramente si se llena la sala con ellos. (Ch.9 / Tao)


Emptiness - Middle luck - Tao. Why can't you attain Satori of Zen Buddhism even though you are making the biggest effort? Because you are desperately looking for it. You cannot obtain it while you are looking for it. Why? Because it is impossible to get something outside you while you have already got it inside you. Listen to Zen Master Tozan Ryokai's maxim: "When it's cold, make yourself feel cold completely". Your life itself is Satori.

Please try Koan Horoscope (although it is in Spanish).
