Good morning Joseth, good morning Roy
I want to write about nothing. Nothing is what you donít see, feel or detect with your five senses. Yet to say, that you do not sense nothing would be incorrect. The absence of something is just as noticeable as the presence of everything.
You walk into a meeting and as the meeting room starts to fill with people, you may notice the absence of some or many people. Later during the break, someone brings you coffee and you may notice the absence of sugar. At the end of your presentation, people you survey about the meeting may be confused because they noticed the absence of a message in your speech.
Even in an empty space you can see nothing. The nothing that you see, is always noticeable, it is always there, in fact there is more nothing than there is something. You may notice that in an empty room, you are seeing more nothing than you are seeing something.
If the entire nothing were removed from around the something, all the something would fit onto the head of a needle. There is always more nothing that there is something.
Nothing is everywhere, the nothing that surrounds the atom, is the energy that keeps it all together, it is me. When you see or sense nothing, you are sensing me. You would be correct to call me nothing, but you would also be correct in calling me everything, for there is nothing that I am not. I am in and around all that is, and all that is not. I am the force that keeps it all together.
When you want to call on me, call on nothing. When you want to see me, see nothing. When you want to communicate with me, talk to no one. Notice that I am not where you are looking and you will find me. I am holding it all together baby! Without me you would literally fall apart.
When you start on your journey to find yourself, you do not have to go very far. It is me you are seeking and I am already here. When you are thinking of nothing you are thinking about me. You can not think of me in like terms as yourself because I am not there in your terms. You are an infinite amount of molecules that I have arranged so that I may notice that I not there but everywhere. You give me definition, you give me existence. If it were not for you I would not notice that I am all around you. There is no place that I am, yet I am everywhere. I am the "Great Nothing," that is everything.
Think about nothing often. In the silence of your mind, you will find me. You can not hear me while your mind is so full of chatter. Empty your mind and I will be there. You can not find me; while you are so busy trying to find me. I can not be where there is everything going on. I am not to be found in your ceremonies and rituals. I can not hear you while you are praying and telling me your lifeís story. Empty you mind and leave room for me, to find me you must do nothing.
Roy, you have sat down to a blank page with nothing in your head to write about. You have found me, and I have written about nothing, it was your desire when you sat down when you had nothing to write about. You got what you were looking for, nothing. The man that has nothing has everything. When you finally have nothing, you will have found me.
The wise man is the man who knows everything about nothing. This is the man you seek. This man can give you nothing, and nothing is what you seek.
When you have everything, the only thing left is to have nothing. Desire nothing and you will have everything.
