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. Even if you use Tao, you can't exhaust it. (Ch.35 / Middle luck)

2. He brings back people's excess to the state it was before. (Ch.64 / Good luck)

3. I see them go back again. (Ch.16 / Good luck)


Middle luck - Good luck - Good luck. Do you wonder why you eat too much? Do you wonder why you keep eating too much even though you have excess weight? Do you wonder why you are gaining excess weight while trying to lose it. You just want to blame your personal Tao that does not listen to what you are asking for and does not grant you the state you desperately need to be in. Having learned that Lao Tzu said that the sage brought back people's excess to the state it had been before, you simply want to pay any amount of money to that wise Taoist weight watcher in exchange with his publicized promise of bringing back any former state of anything. Is there any Taoist weight loss magician? Who knows. Some methods may work. Others may not. In any case, the consequence is always the same. You see your weight go back up again. Then, you feel cheated, and ashamed of yourself, repeating the same mistake again and again. If so, stop thinking like that. But how, Mr Taoist? This is the problem. You know the answer if you are a good reader of «Tao by Matsumoto»: by loving your body as the manifestation of Tao/Love. You accept it as it is and love it as it is. You don't need to change as you don't have to standardize the clouds in the sky. Your body is a beautiful cloud in the sky, which is filled with Love/Tao. Going back means remembering this.
