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 second one is not to waste any. / Lo segundo es no malgastar nada. (Ch.67 / Tao)

2. Learning constancy is called enlightenment. / Aprender la constancia se llama la iluminación. (Ch.16 / Middle luck)

3. Though the uncarved block is small, no one under the sky can make it his minister very well. / Aunque el bloque sin tallar es pequeño, nadie bajo el cielo le puede bien hacer su ministro.
(Ch.32 / Middle luck)


Tao - Middle luck - Middle luck. Why are you interested in learning Taoism, Zen Buddhism, or Shintoism? Do you want to obtain some oriental secret to control the rest of the world? Or, you just humbly want to keep your mind in a calm state while living in a harsh reality of life? I do not discourage you to take either way because you will reach the same conclusion although it will take much longer than the easiest way. «Don't waste any.» is one of the three treasures in Taoism. The enlightenment in Zen Buddhism is called Satori. In fact, they are telling you the same thing: "Accept every moment as it is with gratitude." The true teachings are simple. Do you still want to suffer an exotic mortification?

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