The Beauty of Nothingness

“So if you really go the whole way and see how you feel at the prospect of vanishing forever. Have all your efforts, and all your achievements, and all your attainments turning into dust. nothingness. What is the feeling? What happens to you? That’s what it’s going to all come to. And for some reason or other, we are supposed to find this depressing. Do you see in a way, how that is saying: the most real state is the state of nothing? But if somebody is going to argue that the basic reality is nothingness, where does all this come from? Obviously from nothingness. Once again you get how it looks behind your eyes. You see? So in this way, by seeing that nothingness is the fundamental reality, and you see it’s your reality, then how can anything contaminate it? All the idea of you’re being scared, and put-out, and worried, and so on, it’s just nothing, it’s a dream, ’cause you’re really nothing. but this is the most incredible nothing. so cheer up you see. the essence of your mind is intrinsically pure. pure means clear, void. 
see, if you think of this nothingness as mere blankness, and you hold onto the idea of blankness, and kind of grizzly about it, you haven’t understood it. you see nothingness is really like the nothingness of space, which contains the whole universe. all the suns and the stars and the mountains and rivers and the the good men and the bad men and the animals and the insects; the whole bit. all are contained in the void. so out of this void comes everything, and you’re it. what else could you be?”
