«My Koan Horoscope»

(available in Taoísmo en Español)

1. Bees, scorpions, and vipers don't sting him. (Ch.55 / Little luck)

2. Name or body, which is more familiar? (Ch.44 / Emptiness)

3. Tao accomplishes its tasks and has no name. (Ch.34 / Middle luck)


«Interpretation»

Little luck - Emptiness - Middle luck. Do you wonder why certain men and women undergo cosmetic surgery? Do you wonder why you should not try it and transform your face and body to be better and closer to perfection? Do you wonder why some people are reckless enough to "upgrade" their nose or breasts while knowing that there is a serious risk of disfiguration later on? Do you wonder why some want to be pretty or famous no matter how much it costs them financially and physically? Bees, scorpions, and vipers never sting a baby because he is as he naturally is. A baby does not seek for neither name nor body. Your biggest task is living. By living, you emit Love/Tao whether you are aware of it or not. Your fame is just an idea without substance. Your body is just a part of a hologram. If you are living, your task has already been completed.


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

thank you for this! the thing I've been struggling with most is realizing that I don't have to try to attain anything, I'm already in the state of enlightenment. But then I slowly fall into the trap again...

If you have time Naoto, please look at this video, is this wu-wei?

I am sorry I haven't watched the video yet, but I really want to assure you that living is doing nothing (=«Mu i 無為» in Japanese).

Please do not try to find some sort of «escape». Your true shelter is the precious reality of living your life as it is. You are perfect as you are. Please do not be fooled by some exoticism (this is not for you Rinor-san, but for some other readers).

Thank you.
