Becoming Nothing

Contemplating Nonexistence

Nothingness is of something. It causes distress
Among many folk. People don’t want to go there.
The fear of Becoming Nothing is very strong,
But of nothingness can there be anything wrong?
In their everyday living people do not care
To examine the topic were they to confess.

At the prospect of all your efforts vanishing…
Your achievements and attainments turning to dust,
How do you feel? Do you find it most depressing?
Most people need something onto which they can cling.
The concept of nothingness to them is unjust,
So they find within it absolutely nothing.

But what if the fundamental reality
Is of nothingness? Where does beingness come from?
By saying we are all basically nothing
We release the resistance everything can bring
To the present moment. The eternal outcome
Of everything is nothing. But how can this be?

Nothingness is like the emptiness of deep space.
It contaminates nothing. Its pureness is clear.
Yet it holds the whole universe. The sacred void
Is of spirit. Do not be fearful or annoyed
At the prospect of losing all that you hold dear.
Join the party then dare to be nothing with grace.

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.
