Tao - Middle luck - Tao.

Do you wonder what you have to do with Tao? What is the relation between you and Tao? To understand this, the biggest obstacle to the Cartesian mind with a dualism between man and matter is the concept of the Self. In Zen Buddhism, they have found a solution in clearly declaring that there is no such a thing called Self - Mu Ga (No self). Lao Tzu agrees by saying: "The sage always has no heart." But you may wonder what are the thoughts and the feelings that come into your system. Zen Buddhists' answer to the question is:

[jin juppo (jippo) kai jiko ni arazarumono hitorimo nashi]

In ten nooks and crannies of the whole world, there is no one who is not your own self."

That is to say, the incoming information to your system is the same whether it is visual, sensory, or conceptual. Without using your sensory organs, can you hear what others say? Lao Tzu says: "(The sage) takes people's heart as his own." The world as well as your own self is part of the hologram, which is the manifestation of Tao/Love/Buddha. Then, who are you? True You are Tao/Love/Buddha itself. What do you do in your life? Tao disguising as Yama Uba the hag tells you: "Don't worry. Just follow me?"
