Today's Tao / Hesitant 15-5

«Today's Tao»

Please join me at:






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. The more intelligent the people are, the more evil acts take place. (Ch.57 / Little luck)

2. Neighboring countries can see each other. (Ch.80 / Emptiness)

3. Seeing the small is called enlightenment. (Ch.52 / Good luck)

«From Yama Uba»

And, you know, then I can go back to the real world of love where I belong.
That’s why I have been so desperate to see you.


Little luck - Emptiness - Good luck.

Do you wonder what you are doing in this world, where the grass seems to be always greener in your neighbor's backyard? Do you wonder why you have to live in this world, where the intelligent people seem to take advantage of the less intelligent? Do you wonder why it is too difficult to accept that the very living itself is Satori the enlightenment?
Then, listen to this:

"I am always doing this desperately."

吾れ常に是に於いて切なり / 吾常於此切

 (Zen Master Tozan Ryokai 807-869 洞山良价)
[Tung-shan Liang-chieh / Dongshan Liangjie]

By living desperately, you can go back to the real world of Love.

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

Hello Naoto, thank you for your posts. I have a bit of a strange question for you.

The hologram exists to circulate Tao, but why does the Tao exist?

Is there something... outside the Tao? or this existence?

Sorry for my weird questions... but sometimes it troubles me.

Hello, Rinor-san. How are you? Thank you for your comment.

Let's make it clear, Rinor-san.

The so-called reality is an illusion, which is called a hologram/Genzo by Zen Buddhists. So it doesn't exist. It is the manifestation of Tao/Nothingness. That's why they say: Shiki soku ze kuu (Colors are justly nothing).

Then, let me ask you a question about English language.
Can nothing exist?

Well, here we see the limit of the occidental languages or the Cartesian logic. That's why I need to constantly ask all to read the original. I hope you understand this, Rinor-san.

I send you Amida Buddha's Love so that you will not worry about the existence. It is just an Inmo thing. (Please click and see Inmo on the keywords list in the other Tao by Matsumoto site if you don't know it yet.)

Have a nice day.

Naoto Matsumoto
