Tao Te Ching Chapter 1-4 Mother

Today's Tao

What you can name is the mother of all the material beings. (Ch.1)

Dogen called it "mountains, rivers, and lands" ([sen ga daichi] 山河大地).

What you can name is the visible world. It is your hologram.

All the material things are, in fact, projected in your head.

Otherwise, our brains are not capable of comprehend what is going on.

Then, a question arises.

What is "I"?

Where am "I"?

Dogen answers: "You are mountains, rivers, and lands. You are there".

You project them.

They project you.
