The love that can be described is not the real love
The love that has a name is not the auhentic love
How can we be relevant on the internet in this ocean of information? Who is right, who is wrong, what to read, what to follow?
No one really exists on the internet. Its just a man or a woman clicking away. Typing away, hoping the messages bounce of something and a reply appears on screen. Two check marks in sky blue color. Notifications. Inboxes. Whateva
So you must be something. You must be someone. That’s why fb exists. That’s why we all sign our posts..
You automatically have some sort of identity, what you might be…
So how can you be nothing?
Really… share with me your thoughts of what is nothing?
For now I am a man attempting to maintain his sense of self by expressing my current thought.. Attempting is my current description… my words are my identity here…
And so, my concept of what nothing is, grows…
To share it with you as it is revealed to me is one of my motivations. . But that too will take time
For now.. talk to me.. Let’s bounce the ideas around
We live in a world of dualities. These kind of philosophical questions are definitely very interesting to ponder, however they don’t help me in any way to move forward in my life. I have been asking myself these kind of questions a lot and I still like to discuss this idea. However, I have noticed that it does not really help me in my personal growth.
Nothing = Everything. That’s the best way I can describe it. It’s a man made concept just like time and distance. There is no time and no distance in the ultimate reality. There is no past, there is no future, there is just an eternal now. There is no distance either, because distance can only be measured in respect to something else. There is no ultimate definition of distance if you don’t have another object to measure it with.
If you know these things how is it that it does not help you?
Any personal growth u wish to achieve comes from these things u may seem to know..
Before anything, the question is Why anything?
Nothing sometimes equals everything. . . Yet, nothing is indescribable. So how can you try to figure anything out?
I guess the purpose is to reach a point where we can move and grow without feeling like there is some “secret” out there that we don’t know.
I am sorry if I sounded denigrating or belittling in any way, that was not my intention. When I started searching for a meaning in my life these kind of philosophical questions came into my mind quite a lot. It kept me busy for many hours, discussing it with friends, reading about it etc. Ultimately they did not lead me to the answers I was looking for, however they have definitely opened my mind. So indirectly I guess they definitely helped me to move forward in my life.
Hence, I take back what I said earlier.
No one can have completely rational clarity. Moving forward by relying on your instincts is what people have traditionally called believing in yourself. Any other means we find to justify moving forward is going to be false imo. I also spend a lot of my time pondering things and I definitely don’t think it’s worthless, but no two people will ever agree on all the same answers so real transcendence I feel is moving forwards anyway. There is infinite secrecy but the mystical is what makes life beautiful.
If our true desire would be to be nothing, than why not kill yourself, nobody wants to kill him/herself unless your IDENTITY is so negative in your own eyes.
So we all want to be something, or better to say, we all want to express something, why else are we here, if not to express?
It’s absolutely true that our essence is nothing, it’s our default mode, and that which we are born from, and return to.
So obviously, if we lose contact or awareness whit that, we long for silence, and unity, in fact everything we express and are, is made of nothing( and this is where it gets weird
Sorry it seems that only a third or something of my post is actually posted, and I’m not going to write it again
Great insight guys.. I see that we veer off in to general conceptions; everything is nothing and so on.. but this is my point: Nothing is unexplainable. But liveable.
Wisdom is shown in the way we live rather than what we say about things past or things to come..
The more I read opinions the more I feel like coming back with an appropriate answer. But I realize it means nothing to myself wether someone hears me or not.. there is a beauty in it I cannot describe.
And so, my next observation is this: in text I can compose great knowledgeable words. Some women have called me a snake charmer.. but how do I truly let the nothingness be seen in my life? The god could be considered this nothingness. . How do I shine?
How do you act in your life knowing of this nothingness?
