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. Do emptiness perfectly. / ¡Haga Ud. el vacío a la perfección! (Ch.16 / Bad luck)

2. Being tired and without energy, as if I had no place to go back to. / Estando cansado y sin energía, como si no tuviera ningún lugar para volver. (Ch.20 / Bad luck)

3. All go back to Tao, but it doesn't try to be their master, so we can call it Big. / Todo vuelve al Tao, pero el Tao no se hace su jefe. Por eso, lo podemos nombrar "grande". (Ch.34 / Emptiness)


Bad luck - Bad luck - Emptiness. Do you wonder why you are tired and without energy when you are alone, being sick of wearing a social mask to keep your status, relationship, or company? Do you wonder why you don't have any real friends or true family, sort of a shelter you can really count on or you can go back to anytime, particularly when you have difficulty in your life. Are you upset when Lao Tzu says things like "Do emptiness perfectly", feeling that you are more than empty? Without a Taoist's help, you are a champion of everyday emptiness. Do you wonder why Taoism and Zen Buddhism are too abstract to apply to life? Then, I would like to ask you whether you have heard the Japanese word Kami, which means «deity» in Japanese. There are many Kami (plural) in Shintoism of Japan. Your town or village has got many Kami. Your house or apartment hosts many little Kami. They adore a corner in your room. Your ancestors are Kami, too. Kami-san, which literally means Mr/Mrs deity, signifies «My wife»  in colloquial Japanese. There is neither space nor time in Tao. If you desperately need spacial and chronological bearings in your holographic world, why don't you use these Kami as tools that give you directions? Little Kami on the corner (for example, Zashiki-warashi) can be your spacial bearings. Your ancestors are Ujigami (Clan Kami), and take care of your chronological ones. The matriarchal center is Kami-san, the wife. Without fatigue or a mask, as reliable shelters, many little Kami will welcome you. They are your targets to send Love/Tao in your hologram.
