«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. Water benefits all the material beings very well, and doesn't contend. / El agua beneficia a todos los seres materiales muy bien, y no lucha. (Ch.8 / Tao)

2. Tao gives birth to this. / El Tao da a luz a esto. (Ch.51 / Good luck)

3. There is no one in the world under the sky who can comprehend it. No one can practice it. / No hay nadie en el mundo bajo el cielo quien lo puede comprender. Nadie lo puede poner en práctica.
(Ch.70 / Good luck)


Tao - Good luck - Good luck. Do you wonder how you can put Tao or Zen into practice in your life? I hope you don't, but some seekers of Taoist or Buddhist enlightenment may wonder how they can profit materially or metaphysically from the oriental philosophies and the exotic practices. Other followers are rather modest and simply wonder why they cannot understand what they are learning and reading so desperately. Please listen attentively and sensitively to what Lao Tzu says in Chapter 70 Actor: "There is no one in the world under the sky who can comprehend it. No one can practice it." Oh my goodness, we are hopeless. No, not at all! You are not at all hopeless. You are perfect, rather. Tao is like water. Tao benefits all. You are benefitting from Tao all the time without being aware of the fact. Tao is the light that gives birth to your holographic life. Besides, do not forget what Tao is. It is true You. In conclusion, what Lao Tzu is telling us is not about capability, but absence of obligation. In other words, you don't have to comprehend how Tao works. Nor have you got to practice it intentionally. Your life itself is the "practice" of Taoism or Zen Buddhism. What else do you have to do besides living?
