Tao Te Ching Chapter 18-1 Tao out of use
After big Tao has fallen out of use, we have "morality of love" and its rules. (Ch.18)
In Taoism, the words like morality and rules are considered pejorative.
For they are not natural and created by a society.
If you are one with Tao, you don't need any frame to control your conduct.
Any artificial control is fake.
-Tao out of use 18-1
-Merciful "love"? 18-3
-Loyal ministers 18-4
-Tao by Matsumoto / Tao Te Ching / Chapter 18
-Kawabata's Onsen Geisha Morality is very immoral in Taoism. In this sense, a Geisha is the purest form of womanhood.
Tao answers your question!
