The Beauty Of Nothingness

Aesthetics of the Eternal

Go the whole way in theory to see how you feel
At the prospect of your achievements vanishing.
All your dreams and hard efforts have turned into dust.
How does such a thing strike you? Could you learn to trust
A condition of nothingness? What’s the feeling?
Perhaps thinking about it holds not much appeal.

For some reason or other people are supposed
To find this notion morbid and too depressing
For any mind to deal with. There’s no need to fear.
Nothingness is a blessing. When this is made clear
Then there’s nothing to fret about – not a damned thing!
Many things become transparent and well disclosed.

What if the most real state is that of nothingness
And it was the fundamental reality?
It could not be contaminated by a thing,
Negative are the feelings that too often bring
Misery to your nothingness. It’s best to see
That all that there is comes from nothing through process.

Deepest space contains nothing. The whole universe
Is engulfed in a vastness that cannot be known.
Everything comes from nothing – the good and the bad…
The ugly and pathetic who make people sad.
If you feel you are stranded here you’re not alone.
Consciousness is a dream infinitely diverse.
