…Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content — Helen Keller
Let’s Just try to imagine if instead of the cosmos the observable universe the solar system the sun the moon instead of all that there’s Nothing, absolutely Nothing no galaxies no Nebula’s no Big Bang no humanity no life just Nothing.Nothing in the truest sense of Nothing where instead of having everything we’ve ever perceived there’s Nothing.Darkness Emptiness Void even those terms have to have an observer. It’s almost like the concept of being dead you don’t know you’re dead because you’re dead, like you weren’t aware of anything before you were born.Those that haven’t been born yet aren’t aware that they’re not born.
This is the emptiness in the universe extending infinitely as the black dark Nothingness.There is emptiness within our body within every nerves and vessels ,within the womb that houses us as coelomic cavity in Placental development.
Infact Matter is merely vacuum fluctuations.
It is this emptiness that connects us to the journey of infinitism. No defined destination and no defined source or the ego self. Only the feeling of oneness beyond time & space.Pure consciousness.
The understanding of nature of impermanence went pretty well with me.Practicing and Integrating Vipassana in day to day activities exposed the truth of silence beautifully.The truth we tend to ignore, the truth we tend to run away from and the truth that is eternal.Emptiness is all that exists and remains .It is everywhere surrounding you with you within you over you behind you before you and after you.
The process of self-purification by introspection and consciously watching the mind for every thought it generates adds to the purity in us.True power lies in maintaining equanimity from thoughts that serve the ego you.The bigger picture or the supreme Consciousness is after all the sum total of all individual consciousness.
The biggest gift we have as human being is our awareness because awareness is what gives us choice (or free will) which impacts our behavior which in turn produces experiences and experiences induces emotions.Our spiritual plane is associated with infinite consciousness and physical plane with finite awareness.Miracles happen only when Consciousness overlaps with awareness.Consciousness alone or Awareness alone have no existence in the universe.Its like having a body without soul or a soul without matter.
Consciousness exist without shape, form and dualism, independent of awareness while awareness comes with the complexity of physiological body and the degree to which senses are developed. As the biological complexity increases from unicellular to multi-cellular the entanglement of awareness increases, with humans at the highest level of awareness hierarchically.
As energies we have been existing since time immemorial recycling from one form to another.Only when awareness is acquired do we enjoy the state of being.And when the awareness is transcended beyond self we become infinite. Lost in infinite emptiness…lost in the silence forever And never to touch the ground again :)
