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. It's the place where not so good people feel safe. / Es el lugar donde la gente no tan buena se siente segura. (Ch.62 / Emptiness)

2. Neighboring countries can see each other. / Los países vecinos se pueden ver entre sí.
(Ch.80 / Emptiness)

3. Before and after follow each other. / "Antes" y "después" siguen uno a otro. (Ch.2 / Middle luck)


Emptiness - Emptiness - Middle luck. Do you wonder why you have to live under constant danger? Do you wonder whether there is a place you can feel safe? Do you wonder why there are bad people although Lao Tzu asks you not to judge any? "Good is good. Bad is bad. It is crystal clear," some say. Then, you have to think that people often fight each other while both parties believe that the other are wrong. Both can be right simultaneously? A 13th-century Japanese Jodo Shinshu (Pure land Shin school) Buddhist, Shinran, believed that evil people had better chance of becoming Buddha. "Even good people will become Buddha, not to mention evil people." («Tannisho 歎異抄», Chapter 3) What! Evil people are better than good people! Not exactly. Evil people are the extended part of your own self as well as good people are. You are not just your own self. You are you and the others put together. You are never isolated. Your own self is part of the holographic scenery you see, and true You are Tao/Love. Though the hologram and Tao follow each other, they are not the same. Once you stop mixing the two (Hologram and Tao; Your own self and true You), everything will be crystal clear.
