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. This is called matching the limit of space and time. / Esto se llama ponerse en el límite de espacio y tiempo. (Ch.68 / Bad luck)

2. Big's note has almost no voice. / La nota del Grande casi no tiene voz. (Ch.40 / Little luck)

3. This is called being against Tao. / Esto se llama estar en contra del Tao. (Ch.30 / Bad luck)


Bad luck - Little luck - Bad luck. Do you believe in miracles? Or rather, what do you think the true miracles are? In the Jinzu 神通 chapter of his «Shobogenzo 正法眼蔵», Zen Master Dogen implies the projection of a hologram with time and space is the true miracle. What does this mean? Plainly speaking, he is saying that everyday life is a miracle. Science is getting closer to what he says. Now we know that we cannot recognize anything until we reorganize it in our brain. Science is a metaphor to teach us how Tao and a hologram function. Zen Master Dogen says: "The song of the dragon is not something like do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do. Nevertheless, do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do were born from the song of the dragon." This is another way to explain how a miracle works. The song of the dragon is Tao. It is not do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do, which notes are part of a hologram. Therefore, the notes are born from Tao. If you think about this, all the miracles are possible. If you understand this, now you are ready to live your everyday miracles. Reading this article is a miracle, too. If you doubt these miracles, you are against Tao.
