Morning Meds; 3 17 19
Tao te Ching 36. To expand we must become infinitely small.
Our essence, our core, the what we truly are, is not a thought or a thing.
It is the consciousness the births the thought, the consciousness that imagines the thing.
Yesterday I wrote about the difference between passing through a difficulty compared to pushing against one.
We are essence.
One thought opens the door to a new one and oh the spender.
I’ve been asking to see my core, today I saw a glimpse.
Rumor has it, that 99% of our universe is empty space.
If a single atom was the size of a house, the next closest atom might be a mile away.
Lots of empty space.
We are the empty space between the atoms.
We are nothingness, the unmanifested potential, Lao-tzu’s non-being.
His indescribable, Tao.
As nothingness, we are everything and everywhere.
As nothingness, we are not passing through the world, the world is passing through us.
Being all the empty space of infinity means our center is anywhere and everywhere.
There is nowhere we are not, yet we are nowhere.
As the empty space between all the atoms of manifested energy, we are inside every rock, plant, animal and human on this planet.
We are truly connected.
We can feel anothers pain or joy.
We are truly one at our core.
We are not only a part of every space in the universe, we are every empty space in the universe.
As empty space, any physical condition is accessible, any troubling thoughts approachable, we are boundless.
Lao-tzu laughed in celebration with me this morning’s.
Ask to see your core essence and don’t be surprised to find nothing there.
