In the beginning there was nothing, except the awareness of nothing. Yet, neither the awareness or nothing existed separately, for all was one. In the awareness of nothing, there was no conception of desire, no fear of suffering, no one with which to identify; there was simply nothing.
Awakening is the realisation of your only possible identity, and your infinite possible conceptions.
Reality is a collection of fortunately positioned beliefs and existences in a range of logically justifiable situations. However, through insight meditation, concentrated observation and the courage to step away from the you you believe exists, the components of belief that make up this illusory world and the repetitiveness of what is perceived as reality will become clear.
Every thing that has ever been and will ever be can be seen as part of what will eventually complete the human experience.
When there is nothing left, all that remains is the awareness of an awareness observing thought and senses.
One of the greatest misconceptions we are fooled into believing is that objects and specific arrangements alike have substantial meaning. It is easy to imagine the concept of an empty painting, but a painting of a flower becomes a concept to which a subject belongs. The subject is the flower and cannot — unlike the painting – exist without the other.
It is unlikely that we are close to knowing anything about the reality of the world we are living in, not because of privilege, nor is it the lack of understanding for the things around us. It is simply because we do not deserve to know. If we are born into ignorance, only to lead a life lead by ignorance and then follow a path or a goal or a dream that was inspired by ignorance, why should we deserve anything more?
