NOTHING HAS EVERYTHING

NOTHING HAS EVERYTHING  

Everything has nothing. There is no conflict between these statements. What experience is, is nothing. Experience does not last. Nothingness lasts. The content is temporal while the movement of consciousness Being consciousness plays on timelessly. Experiencing experiencing and/or experiencing phenomena is ultimately just consciousness Being consciousness.

Experience can be a developmental tool to self-educate ourselves in regards to self-imposed limitations of not Being Everything/Nothing. The limitations are always sponsored by an idea called ‘me’. ‘Me’, the artificial construct, cannot get out of the way enough to perceive its own futility. Limitations will always persist in this shallow idea. ‘Experience’ is a ‘stop’ and is then owned by the ‘me’. Limitation cannot leave this infantile expression.

Conversely, experiencing never stops. 

There is not enough ‘space’ in the ‘me’ to ever get out of limitation. In other words, ‘me’ is limitation. There is no room in the ‘me’ to even ‘See’ more limitation being manufactured when we try to suppress this ‘me’, especially when striving to be a better or more spiritual person.

The ’striving’ itself is a limitation, in that, that activity automatically denies the existence of what is always Present. The ‘me’ striving is essentially an illusion wanting to be a better illusion. Thoughts and ideas are ineffective vehicles to realize what is not a thought, idea, or illusion.

Using fields of limitation to find no-limitation is a fool’s errand.  Losing the ‘me’ does not interest the ‘me’ as it would be the death of ‘me’. And of course that would be unacceptable to the ‘me’.

The death of ‘me’ would change identity and limitation radically. What is left is no identity and no limitation. Nothing and Everything then shows up as clearly Present and as having never left.  

What got eliminated was limitation and a very parochial view. Spaciousness ‘Sees’ the artificial-ness that was imposed by holding on and stopping ‘experience’ to define self. Patterns of limitation cannot be clearly seen when they define our ‘seeing’. ‘Seeing’ (clearly) is always unobstructed by no holding and/or stopping for any thing.

Beliefs and concepts invite illusion (stops). Access to Self cannot be found by these devices.

’Nothing’ tells us we are a zero. There is no 2nd or a ‘me’. Personhood  and/or identity, are artificial constructs. There is only the ‘Oneness’ expressing Itself as Everything/Nothing. We are in control even when we are seemingly demonstrating acts of being out of control. The answer lies in who the ‘we’ Is.

Experience is there not to get involved with it, but to expose the limitation of hanging on to it. When the ‘me’ identifies and stops to dance with the idea called ‘me’, it is losing freedom to be so much more i.e. Everything.

What We Are is ‘experiencing’ not experience (except ultimately). Being ‘Nothingness’ is the spaciousness that allows everything. Locking in ‘things’ and ‘ideas’ is not the freedom of no limits.

Being ‘Nothing’ Is ‘Everything’.

EXPERIENCING IS NOT THE EXPERIENCE

EXPERIENCING IS NOT THE EXPERIENCE

What is ‘experiencing’  is not what is ‘experienced’. These are two different realms. Not losing sight of ‘experiencing’ while at the same time having the ‘experience’, is staying in everything. However, if there is a switch to ‘experience’ (noun) over ‘experiencing’ (verb), this  preference, essentially butts out ‘experiencing’. Too much liking of the experience will result in ‘having’ the experience and being ‘taken’ by the experience. 

The outcome of misplacing identification to ‘experience’, is ‘this’ thing called forgetting. Forgetting the ‘experiencing’ is forgetting true identity for false identity. 

The perseveration of occluding our True Nature countless times during our day, results in a separation and an unfamiliarity with Self. A fictitious self arises, made up of repetition, memory, imagination, and time. Triggering these elements creates a conspiracy of self that has no reality. It is so convincing ‘we’ often never find out we were operating our lives from the fictional section of our personal library.

On the other hand, the repetition of ideas, the creation of imaginary self, and the belief in the element of time, never were part of ‘experiencing’. Timelessness, emptiness, and unacquired knowledge are the parts of ‘experiencing’ that never change or disappear. ‘Experiencing’ attaches Itself to nothing while at the same time Being everything.

Breaking down the artificial distancing from Self can be illustrated by a couple of examples.

Not knowing some thing or some memory can get us lost in pursuit of information that can easily cause us to flip the switch completely to ‘experience’ mode. This is a trivial example yet it often results in an undesired separation from our True Nature. 

Not remembering what I thought I should remember and then getting lost in trying to remember, to the full exclusion of ‘experiencing’, happens frequently enough. That is the ‘experience’ overriding ‘experiencing’. ‘Experiencing’ does not get concerned about not remembering. ‘Experiencing’ has no need to remember. 

When you ‘Know’ you are ‘experiencing’ first and always, you don’t walk that off and go exclusively to the ‘experience’. The ‘experience’ is always limited.

The trickery of the mind convinces itself to trade the ‘experiencing’ for pursuit of the ‘experience’. Bad trade, especially when no trade is necessary.

‘Experiencing’ never leaves yet has everything and more. ‘Experience’ alone is missing the point of ‘experience’. ‘Experience’ is nothing to hold captive or pursue exclusively. It is the play of Consciousness. ‘Experiencing’ holds nothing yet is aware deeply of everything. When we realize there is nothing to capture we relax in the awareness of just ‘experiencing’.

Another example. ‘Having an epiphany’ turns out to ‘not having an epiphany’. The epiphany, by ‘having’, is no longer an epiphany except in the past tense (time-based). The epiphany doesn’t last. What lasts is ‘experiencing’-staying in ‘experiencing’ as ‘experiencing’. The epiphany then doesn’t matter because ‘that’ is an event in time (that is over).

What matters is ‘What Is’ and that Is ‘experiencing’. Everything after that is to be let go as unnecessary fodder often used to create some illusory and unnecessary piece of identity.

We are always Knowing we are only the ‘experiencing’.

‘Experiencing’ makes no stops. It is just ‘experiencing’. Stopping anywhere for anything would seemingly interfere with the purity of experiencing ‘experiencing’.

Experiencing ‘experiencing’ Is the Fullness. When ‘It’ Is all Here where else could we go?!

THERE IS ONLY THE ONENESS

THERE IS ONLY THE ONENESS

There is no question, the answer is only the Oneness. There cannot be an ‘us’ or ‘them’. There cannot be a ‘you’ and ‘me’. There is only this Oneness.

Separation from the Oneness is still within the Oneness. ‘It’ is simply an appearance in Oneness. Separation is not separate from the vastness of everything. Seeming separation is merely a permutation and coloring of Oneness. 

Separate ideas of subject/object indeed have no permanence or longevity except in a conceptual framework. ‘Not two’  is a remembering of permanence and a deliberate forgetting of imagining ‘separate’ to having any ‘real’ relevance.

There is no ‘who’ pointing to a ‘whom’. The ‘person’ is a temporary phenomenon self-sustained merely through false belief. Everything is always ‘one’ thing expressing Itself. The expressions are after true identity. True Self requires no belief system. Belief systems and false identities sustain themselves through time, as there is nothing really there except belief.

There is no separation in the Oneness as it is only the Oneness.

All points point to the Oneness. The starting point is nothing. The starting point is the endpoint. There is no difference. Everything falls into place when Knowing ‘this’ starting point. There is nothing to hold on to and nothing to get. The only thing gotten is freedom to Be. All the expressions and phenomena are just that. There is really nothing to hold on to here. The freedom is in letting go. Being Is just Being. 

Having space for ‘nothing’ requires infinite space. The ‘me’ is phenomena incapable of containing the vastness. The ‘me’ is an artifact projected in the construct of time. 

When the ‘me’ is suddenly not ‘me’ then the veil of illusion falls flat. The Oneness has always been present Seeing all experiences without needing the illusory me and its commentary. The Oneness is the One that lives life, ultimately making all decisions as there is no-one else to make them. 

There can be no-one looking for this Oneness. There is no looking/searching. Looking is doing. There is no ‘looker’ and there is no ‘doer’. There is just ‘doing’ by Being. What gets done by Being is receiving. Oneness is the infinite space for allowing everything to Be. 

We Are ‘that’ everything and only that. Starting from everything is the shortest distance to Being everything. Love the fullness of loving everything. There is only the Oneness.

KNOWING NOT KNOWING

KNOWING NOT KNOWING

Knowing is elemental and existential. If there were no ‘knowing’ this blog could not be read, seen, or understood. Knowing always comes first before even any sentient gate. The five sentient gates are pathways for ‘knowing’. The ‘known’ all ends up at the ‘knowing’.

Strictly speaking, this ‘knowing’ is not equivalent to intelligence. It is intelligence like it is everything. ‘Knowing’ is the unacquired knowledge that cannot be taught. In a ‘classic’ sense, intelligence is something we acquire and learn. Neither of these characteristics fully defines the depth of ‘knowing’.

The ‘knowing’ itself is limitless and undefinable. To fully define it is to fully limit it. Moreover, the lack of a ‘hard and fast’ definition reflects the inability of a lesser vehicle (mind) to define and contain something that cannot be conceptualized. Like the mind, ideas too, cannot grasp the vastness of no limits.

The temerity of passing phenomena divining existential ‘Isness’ is a common practice among most of our population. It is the malpractice of using insufficient tools to render opinions that have no basis in Reality.

The ‘knowing’ is not an experience. And ‘knowing the ‘knowing’ is not an experience. The ‘knowing’ cannot be funneled into an experience. And yet ultimately even experience is only the ‘knowing’.

The ‘knowing’ never leaves and yet the ‘knowing’ leaves no trace. Emptiness Is the ‘knowing’. All there is to experience is experience. The ‘knowing’ allows and knows all experience yet no experience can touch the ‘knowing’.

‘Knowing’ cannot be limited by any experiential happening. The ‘knowing’ dominates and integrates every experience without interfering in any way. Without the ‘knowing’ no experience can be known.

The feeling of ‘not knowing’ is knowing ‘self’ as pure openness. This ‘not knowing’ is the emptiness of the ‘knowing’. ’Not knowing’ is the movement into ‘knowing’. The acquired knowledge is let go as ‘that’ knowledge has inherent liabilities in reaching the ‘knowing’. The ‘not knowing’ is the allowing of ‘knowing’ more overtly. Acquired knowledge cannot alone bring us to our true unacquired nature. Acquired knowledge has utility, certainly. It’s limitations prohibit its exclusive use for Knowing Self.

‘Knowing’ ‘not knowing’ is ‘knowing’ forms and formless. The identity with ‘knowing’ is the ‘not knowing’ of self alone. The Self we are is elemental existence before form. Over-identification with form is a pretense that disallows ‘not knowing’ and ultimately ‘knowing’ Knowing.

Knowing ‘Knowing’ is everything. This is the language of unconditional Love. Know Thyself. Love all. 

ONLY ONE SPACE

ONLY ONE SPACE 

Reliably, space does not move. Reliably, Here and Now does not change.

What changes constantly is what is in the ‘space’ here and now. That ‘change’ is reliably changing. Without the definition of a clear un-occluded space, our thoughts, sensations, perceptions, things, concepts would not be available to discern. 

Space is always Present in untold volume, Here and Now. And that space is not quantifiable as it is nothingness.

There is only ‘one’ space. It has no quantity that can be measured. A small space is not really a ‘small’ space as it can never be diminished. It is always the same space regardless of our housing of space in jars or buildings.

Space can be seen as essentially performing the same task whether it is in the waking state or dream state. Even when there is seemingly nothing anywhere, like the void, there is space Present. Space Is Presence without form engaging with forms and/or without forms.

If there is a task, that task cannot be completed anywhere but in space Itself. Space is the limit because it is limitless.        

Space is operating in timelessness and in the seeming construct of time. Space is unaffected in either situation. It Is Present. It Is always the same space. 

A compelling characteristic of space is that it always is in receiving Itself and/or everything. There is no discrimination in space as there is only ‘one’ space. Additionally, Everything is already ‘space’ Itself.  For this reason, space does not have to move.

Here/Now does not move as ‘it’ too is ultimately space.

Space is the beginning and space is the end. But then, there is no difference as the difference is the addition of time.  

The relationship of space to the body is there is no ‘real’ relationship. It Is just space. Seeing the body at the keyboard is seeing ‘one’ field. Experientially we are seeing and experiencing things in ‘one’ field. The ‘owning’ that we ‘do’ with our bodies does not then make two fields or two objects (subject/object). Thinking we are separate does not make it so in Reality.

Categorical divisions are much ‘after’ the experiencing of reality. Making a division itself is by its nature divisive/arbitrary. Our experiencing comes first with division subsequent. Having a typology has nothing to do with Reality.   

Space is ‘spacing’ in that It Is alive and timeless. There is no inertness Here. Feeling Self as ‘space’ is a letting go of ‘stuff’ that is in space. The heart space is perhaps a clearer emptiness where the aliveness can more easily be felt.

Space is infinitely generous. ’That’ can also be called un-conditional Love. There is no holding here. There are no stops in emptiness otherwise it would not be emptiness. Love thrives in an empty unconditional  milieu. ‘It’ welcomes and accepts everything/everyone always. That is the nature of space and Love.

Give space, Be Love. Love always everywhere, every time. There Is only one space and only one Love.    

I AM NOT A GOOD PERSON

I AM NOT A GOOD PERSON 

I am not a bad person. I am not even ‘a’ person. There is too much  limitation in any of all ‘that’. 

Identity with an idea about whom we are is limiting Self to a ‘thing’ or just another idea. The ‘idea’ of Awareness is not Awareness. That would be too much limitation as well as making ‘Awareness’ an object.

Awareness cannot limit Itself to some such characterizations as ‘good’ or ‘bad’. The Everything has everything to include those ‘good’ and ‘bad’ ‘ideas’. The Unbounded-ness cannot be bound and still remain unbounded. 

When we put ourselves in any category we limit ourselves. Categories are subsets of possibilities. To suggest one possibility over another is to make a preference for that possibility. ‘Preference’ is a synonym for limitation i.e. one over another. No preferences is ‘spaciousness’. Ergo, ‘spaciousness’ has no preferences because there are no limitations.

We Are the Spaciousness that is ‘before’ everything.  Being ‘good’ is not a requirement for Spaciousness to Be. Spaciousness, Stillness, Silence, Is ‘before’ the ideas of ‘good’, ‘bad’, and ‘ugly’. If our identity is at the endpoint of creation, we miss the substance of being Being. 

We are not static and un-alive things. We Are Life Itself giving animation to everything. Being-ness is seminal existence. It Is the Prior-ness, the life that Is, without memory, projection, and/or especially ideas, all of which come subsequently.  

The indulgence in ‘things’ or ‘ideas’ is a trading of ‘no view’ for a particular view, e.g. “I am good”. Owning and resonating with a point of view is connecting with ideas at the expense of our True Nature. It is a pursuit of duality. It is an opening for a ‘doer’ to separate from just Being. And the ‘doer’ is not right/wrong. It just isn’t. 

“What Is” just Is. Nothing, not even ideas of ‘good’ can be added to It.

Any point of view is a distillation of “What Is”.  A distillation is a separation from the whole. No point of view equals no expectations.

‘No expectations’ releases any binding to allow more freedom and unbounded-ness. Even expectations of being ‘good’ are binding because there is a limited parochial definition of ‘good’. What was ‘good’ in one place at one time is no longer ‘good’ at this place and at this time.

Moreover, when definitions come from ego/doer, these definitions are not from a primary source. The ego/doer is a real illusion that is not real. The illusion of the ego/doer will inquire as to its own validity -“Am I getting this?”  

When we See that we have a ‘point of view’, we can also See we are indulging in limitation and narrowness. See the ‘point of view’ as an opportunity to See the narrowing of Spaciousness Itself. Seeing ’that’, Is Spaciousness.

Awareness, Stillness, Spaciousness, Silence, and Unboundedness are not bound by ‘any’ point of view. All points of view are present in Presence. Oneness Is merging into Oneness.

Things are just as they appear without any conditions. There is no real good or bad, essentially meaning that we Are Awareness with nothing between us. The ‘us’ is not even there as ‘this’ Is all Awareness.

I am Awareness. That is enough. Expect nothing Be Everything.

ILLUSIONS ARE REAL 

The ‘illusion’ that  is ‘seen’ is actually seen. There is reality to an illusion. What the illusion ‘misrepresents’ is part of the illusion. There is a deliberateness in the evoking of unreality in the reality of illusion. Illusions are fakes just as ‘fakes’ are real. Is that Rembrandt real or a fake? 

The central issue of ‘reality’ is Seeing the substance of life before making any conclusions about the certainty of forms (matter). It can be argued that all forms and appearances are fake. That does not alter the obligation ‘to play the game’ and participate in its dharma. 

‘How’ we play the game is what is imperative. If we do not recognize the fact that it Is a game (aka illusion), then we respond with a faux ‘ground’. Creating a fake ground means we really believe in the illusion and miss its ‘falseness’. That stops flow (seemingly). 

The real ‘ground’ is being Being.  And ‘Being’ is the groundless ground, meaning It Is before all the Leela (divine play) and form.  

If we create a false ground and ‘believe’ in it when we play the game, we lose Ourselves. Losing Ourselves is not the object of the game, ideally. Conversely, when we never lose our ‘real’ reference point (groundless ground), we understand the illusion and not take the game too seriously. 

Our Being-ness is always referenced and never lost in playing any role or game. What ideally is lost is belief in the ‘role of personhood’. Who is playing before, during and after the game, e.g. “Fortnite”?

If we win the game or if we lose the game, it matters not to our ‘ground’ if we maintain the ’Seeing’ and ‘Being’ of Knowing Self ceaselessly. When our ‘ground’ and ultimate reference point is veiled, we subjugate Ourselves to illusory characters not really any different than those in the game we are playing.

Coming from the point that ‘everything’ Is ‘Knowing’, we then Know We are always the ‘Knowing’. The illusion is ultimately the ‘Knowing’ taking the form of illusion itself. The ‘Knowing’ is in the illusion Itself. If ‘everything’ Is Everything, then even the illusions know the Knowing.

The deliberateness of illusions are part of the perfection of perfection. From the view of ‘no view’ the obstacles are not obstacles. The obstacles are inherently pointers to the formless Knowing.

Illusions are found in finiteness. Finiteness is a contraction of infinity. Infinity has zero finiteness or illusion. The separation from Self is illusion.

See the illusion from the ‘Knowing’ central to the heart space. It Is all sourced from Our Being-ness, effortlessly Now. Everything Is Knowing the Loving. ’That’ Is real. 

THE FLOW OF STILLNESS

What is the backing of all activity, sensations, perceptions, and forms? 

In order for any construct or form to appear there has to be an un-occluded space for it. Without the spaceless space, collisions and chaos would challenge any manifestation to be clear and unambiguous.  

A characteristic of this ‘space’ is Stillness. Clarity is best served by the juxtaposition of an eternal unmoving stillness with a coordinated barrage of seeming unending moving stimuli that characterizes the somewhat predictable universe in which we abide.  

The conclusion here is that the universal space has a unifying influence on what is in the space. Otherwise what orders the order? What coordinates the countless objective field of things to operate under some mutual framework? And what can produce order without interference as another object or thing?

What is being pointed to here is ‘what’ cannot be seen. The nature of Stillness, Silence, and Spaciousness is clearly not to be seen but always Present. 

Theoretically, if the ‘unseen’ would be ‘seen’ then there would be a ‘stop’, albeit creation. Creation cannot function as an arbiter of the universe in that creation is a clear stop. The Universe flows seamlessly always without stops. Stops are a creation with ‘limitation’ as a primary characteristic.

The Universe remains undiminished and unlimited in formlessness while creating forms that are limited and ultimately empty. The forms point back to the Universe as it is all Universe.

Stillness is perennially Present. Forms do not block Its Presence. At any moment, Stillness can be found supporting the infrastructure of all forms and phenomena. In the universe and in our particular life, Stillness abides quietly giving space to “What Is”.  

The phenomena of “What Is” is secondary to no-phenomena of “What Is”. In other words, forms come after formlessness. It Is the formlessness that informs creation (forms). The Stillness can only be experienced by Stillness. Stillness has no stops or forms. Forms, concepts, and mind cannot divine Stillness. The limitation of forms disallows forms to be used to find Stillness. 

Knowing the unlimited through the direct experience of Stillness, without contributions from the mind, is the ticket to Be. There is nothing that the mind can add to Stillness that it doesn’t already have. And there is nothing that can be taken away from Stillness as It cannot be diminished. Forms can be used to find forms. Stillness does not need to be found. It Is.

Whom we are before, during, and after forms is this ineffable Stillness.

The flow of Stillness is not a movement per se. It Is the continuous substrate of Being suffusing everything and everyone at all times. It allows movement to flow from It. It Is ‘allowing’ with no doer.

Stillness is always there/here. And phenomenological movement will always reveal the Stillness.  See the underside of any form by feeling the resonance Present there before any form. Stillness is not form or movement based. Effortlessly let ‘that’ Stillness flow. In the depths of our heart this can be felt Now.  

THE DENSITY OF SPACE

Space is a metaphor for letting go of the hardness of seeing reality in a bi-polar view i.e. this and that of duality. Even from the framework of duality (subject/object) we can easily recognize the hardness of positions and predilections. This hardness or density is a binding limitation prompted by believing in polarities as the basis of existence. Polarities are an expression of existence and NOT a basis of ‘pure’ existence and beyond (before). Polarities come after the Being-ness of existence.

Despite their density, polarities ultimately are essential ’space’, as space allows everything. Succinctly, space allows density despite no density in space.  Forms have density. It is the nature of forms. Formlessness has an essential lack of forms. All forms cannot be anywhere without being in ’space’ first.

Here ‘formlessness’ is synonymous with ‘space’. Form and formless are parts of space.

Duality engenders division through a singular belief in the limited forms of thought. This division is a separation from the foundational energy of formless Being-ness through the over-identification with content (thought) versus the density-free zone of no-thought and no density.

Forms are commonly celebrated over formlessness by pursuit of unity/harmony through the specious density of forms. Perseverating on forms creates ’stops’  or ‘binding’ in the flow of dense-free space.  The ’stop’ occurs because the flow is not allowed due to the hardening of desire to ‘own’ a particular density.

Thoughts bind due to the dis-allowing of ‘flow’. Thoughts then harden into traits i.e. vasanas. Freedom to be apart from this conditioning is freedom from the density caused by these stops and/or bindings. Flow has no stops as ‘it’ can see past any presumed bindings as not causal. Flow recognizes the freedom of infinite space as the edge that has no stops. Flow is falling comfortably with no intention of stopping for any form.

Observing ourselves as a form of density is stickiness to density plus the added artificiality of establishing a ‘doer’ to do. Observing ourselves as space with absolutely no stops, brings in a vast emptiness that is ‘doing’ by ‘Being’. A ‘doer’ would be a ‘stop’ or a ‘noun’ working outward. Being-ness or ‘flow’ is verb-ing non-stop in open infinite space. Freedom Is this. There are no ‘stops’ here. And ‘here’ is everywhere.

Crashing into objects because of the identification with objects of high density, is common in the self that is believed in. Every time we identify with a thought, it inevitably crashes (stops) into a concept that binds us into a suffering self. The suffering is the trying to establish a better life for the separate idea of the doer’ or the ‘me’. This is density on steroids.

Presence cannot be conceptually found as it has no density, stop, or form. Feeling Self as spatially there as Love Itself in the spiritual heart, is finding existence Itself aware of Itself. Enjoining with the emptiness that holds the entirety of the universe, visible/un-visible, requires being emptiness Itself. Feel one-self as space that allows all forms effortlessly, as there is no binding here. Become this Awareness that offers It’s space to anything/everything at all times.

The density of space Is un-manifest formless-ness. And ‘that’ Is unconditional Love. Love flows effortlessly Here. Be ’That’. 

THE SPACE WHERE IT HAPPENS

THE SPACE WHERE IT HAPPENS

 Not unlike the Hamilton play, the ‘space’ where it happens is essential to ‘being’ there. Even later, outside of the essential moment, ‘knowing’ what happened, is best articulated by the presence of attendees.

The ‘happening’ of the event can be retranslated later but not without compromising the perfection of what had happened. The ‘aliveness’ that was present in ‘that’ moment is certainly not present in a retranslation. Not having this ‘aliveness’ leaves a distillation that is lacking in fullness, however articulated by the attendees.  

Another point to consider is the viewpoint of having a ‘view’. Each participant in the ‘space’ where it happens usually has a ‘view’. When there is ‘no view’, it is if there is no participant. ’No view’ leaves no residue of ‘my’ or ‘mine’. It is just what happened with no ‘holding’ of anything to include a ‘view’.

The purity of the ‘moment’ has no stops unless we create them. Creating ‘stops’, stops the flow. The ‘flow’ has no view unless we say it does. A ‘view’ is created and then ‘it’ seemingly stops flowing.

The ‘space’ where it happens lets everything happen without any rendering of separation and characterization into ‘this’ and ‘that’  and/or ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Creating a noun is creating a stop.  

The ‘aliveness’ is ‘alive’ due to its expression in ‘this’ moment. And there is only ‘this’ moment. The Now is not in linear time. Linear time has a beginning/end. The Now has no start or finish. This is the ‘aliveness’ that cannot be successfully brought into the past or future. It Is eternity expressing an unlimited view with never any stops at any time.

The ‘space’ is emptiness of all forms. The appearance of forms does not affect emptiness or negate the integrity of formlessness. Forms appear/disappear distinguishing themselves by their temporariness. Forms do not have a ‘Presence’ as they are dreamt.

The substance is the emptiness, the formless, the ’space’ that Is alive with loving awareness Now. Ideas, goals, conceptual frameworks are lesser vehicles used by the mind to transact the dreaming of life from the viewpoint of the body. Emptiness needs no view as it Is Everything Now to include time itself.

Being ‘here’ means being Being with the assertion that identity is known as ‘Being’. ‘Being’, either in the dream of life or in a sleeping dream, is ‘Knowing’ the ‘Knowing’ with no stops for the appearances and viewpoints. 

There is identity with the incarnation of form but only for purposes of transacting Beingness in form. ’Space’ allows the appearance of all forms and ultimately is form. However, the Presence of ’space’ does not get lost in identification in form. ‘Everything’ Is already everything.

Being in the ‘space’ where it happens is not a ‘doing’. It Is an alive resonance having nuclear moments constantly. Seeing that ‘we’ Are ’space’ and feeling the depth of our own openness Now/always is enough. Nothing needs to be added to ‘Everything’. The emptiness of ’space’ Is complete with or without things.

Content, if actually added, to the fullness of ’space’ would create a contraction of space. Content is often used to create identity. Identity is a ‘seeming’ contraction in ’space’. 

Lose the attachment to content and just ‘Be’.  All forms abide in this emptiness. The vastness of ‘space’ is a metaphor for letting go and accepting emptiness Itself as Truth of Self. Existence Itself has to be before any thoughts or ideas. Views and identity are after-thoughts.  Existence Is.

Be the existence of the ’space’ where it all Is happening Now.

“Go beyond the circumstances of your life. Go beyond the stories of your mind. Go beyond the sensations in your body and open to that which lies beyond all experience… the vast, infinite, open space of awareness which experiences arise. Allow your attention to melt into and merge fully with that.” -Louise Kay
