A book of nothingness.
We put thirty spokes together and call it a wheel;
But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the wheel depends.
We turn clay to make a vessel;
But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the vessel depends.
We pierce doors and windows to make a house;
And it is on these spaces where there is nothing that the usefulness of the house depends.
Therefore just as we take advantage of what is, we should recognize the usefulness of what is not.
~ The Tao Te Ching
That is why emptiness is so necessary. Because it’s only in a place of inner quiet that we can hear ourselves. It’s only when the voices in our heads are temporarily silenced that the messages become crystal clear. It doesn’t matter what path you take. You are already there.
A verse from a strange dream sung to me a strangely bible themed verse saying:
“Defining bad will define good. To mean everything but nothing at all. One mind given by he who is the holy father will be one voice that speaks to the multitude, not through natural convention but by divine convention. This is how they will know. This is how one reclaims a throne.”
I have no clue what it means but maybe i’ll figure it out someday.
All things pointed me in this direction. I must know what the state of nothingness to find what I sought.
The path to nothingness:
Phi – to know everything you must know of nothingness.
To fuel the fire of the star, you must know what it is to be depleted.
Spiritual emptiness is a a fallen state that affects focus and awareness.
The soul has energy that creates movement and activity.
The big bang:
What if the big bang itself was god and the light released is his word, love and glory. We are his conscience I believe the skill to the game is in imagining the world/life as a spiders web and stringing those threads outwards and instead radiate light and find the balance between how far light can reach(the work) and how far you need to space the threads in order to optimize the light’s efficiency. As in life you would be like a radiating star passing through seeing, understanding and comprehending the space that you go through.
