10 Jan Nothingness And Emptiness
Nothing is every-thing before it is what it is whatever it is. As nothingness, every-thing is one indescribable thing,
In the stillness and quietude of meditation we can experience the nothingness of everything. Otherwise, we are overwhelmed by the infinite things that make up everything, so we organize things in containers; words, descriptions, generalizations, categories and stories describing many seemingly similar things.
However, as every-thing is unique and ever-changing, no thing can be containerized. Thus, the containers are empty. Anything within them is an illusion.
Likewise, the Self is an empty container. However we describe it is an illusion. The soul is the nothingness from which every-thing springs.
